It's all a moot point, Larrson is hurt and he's going nowhere.

Again, you will see a trade coming at some point but I doubt you will see the type of trade you are talking about.
I don't see Lou making a bold move like that but that's the type of move I'd like for him to make. Yakupov is a 3rd line RW'er and Larsson is a middle pairing d-men who get's benched when we have a healthy lineup... just like Yakupov at times.

It's a toss up on both sides but would address a glaring need for both teams. The Oilers are looking to add a stud d-man and we're looking to add a stud forward.

What's the big problem with such a proposal, I just don't know.
