I don't get why Eberle would be in play and Yakupov wouldn't. Eberle has proven much more than Yakupov, and doesn't have the "Russian factor" hanging around him like a cloud. Eberle is older and has a bigger contract, but I fail to see why they would realistically get rid of him before Yakupov.

One thing's for sure, though. Eventually, they're going to have to trade someone. They can't have that many forwards making that much money. You're going to start getting diminishing returns from 1st liners being paid like 1st liners, but getting 2nd line minutes. Sometimes, from a cap perspective, it's just best to have a true 2nd liner on a reasonable contract, giving you flexibility to spend elsewhere.
