Galchenyuk had 4 points in his last 13 games before last night. There's a perfect example.

We're also talking about Eberle here. Eller and Eberle aren't comparable either.
it has nothing to do with comparables. it has to do with proven v. unproven. Eberle and Eller are proven talents; Yakupov and Larsson are not. that was the point i was trying to make.

even if Galchenyuk had a scoring slump recently, he was still contributing on the ice. Yakupov on the other hand still has a long way to go when it comes to playing a 200 foot game. giving up proven talent for him now might pay off later on, but that's simply too big of a risk to take.
