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.
If you mean offensively limited 2nd liner? Yes, he fits that mold very well.

We have a few offensively limited 2nd liners.

What we need, and Schenn has not shown to be that, is LEGIT top line talent.

I have seen nothing from Schenn that makes me think "special"

Looks to be a solid player, but 2nd/3rd line tweener.
