Plus, with the team clicking, and our two best RW's in the press box as it is, do we really want to add another one?
Honestly, I think a guy like Brayden Schenn would be a nice add. Kid has upside, plays a gritty game, and would be cheaper to acquire than Yakupov. Perhaps the offensive upside isn't on par with Yakupov's, but Schenn fits the mold of many of our younger players while still being very skilled.
Getting Schenn would be the case of getting the same ol'. We should concentrate on getting playmakers and/or pure goal scorers if we seriously are contemplating of moving 1 or 2 of our own players.
