Well thought out offer even if fellow Oiler fans do not see the value .
I'd be willing to add Lack. He's doing well as a backup, and while I'd feel bad recalling Eriksson and leaving our AHL team with literally terrible goaltending, I'd be willing to do it for Yakupov.

Given the direction the Oilers seem to have gone with the Smid trade, it seems like they are still looking for younger players, which would make us better trading partners imo.

I'd rather deal young players than players like Edler/Burrows who are in their prime right now, as we are still trying to compete now. I can definitely see why a lot of Oilers fans would prefer to start the transition to "win now" though, given how long the current rebuild has lasted for.
