There is a huge size difference between the (2) players obviously. Kovalchuk is a bull. I understand your point, but there are other ways to score in this league and while Kovalchuk is fast, Yakupov has more speed.
I don't condone any sort of deal. I just think it would be a good move if they can add him while not blowing the whole thing up.
The point I was making was that it makes sense to try to add a player who can score @ 20 rather than 27. I thought that was relatively obvious. I was using Kovalchuk and Nash as random examples.
