Been suggested before here. Both sides I believe passed, in general.

Anyway, to reiterate, pass as a Habs fan. Keep it civil, since it has been discussed before, so probably won't stay open too long this time around if it goes off the rails to any extent.

Habs need Subban too much on D, and I don't think there was much of a dynamic between Yakupov and Galchenyuk, they are both just talented guys in their own right, there wasn't some kind of special magic between them that would add any spice to reuniting them.

Subban's a special player. Not saying Yakupov isn't, but we have no proof he's going to be a star in the NHL as of now. It's makes no sense from the Habs POV to get rid of his best d-man.

Seems very good for both. Don't see why either would want to pass up what potential each player would bring to their team.

Galchenyuk + Yak would be a dream to build around. They would make the Habs something to talk about.

A legit, fired up, ready to win young dman that brings everything, is exactly what Edmonton is looking for.

Value doesn't seem too bad. Maybe favor Oilers a bit. Yakupov has more potential, but PK is the proven piece.

Don't think Habs can afford to lose Subban, and doubt Oilers would be interested in losing Yakupov ceiling, but if I was an Oiler fan, I'd be all over that one.

Oilers should say yes...maybe. The problem with that team is they have too many skilled undersized forwards(Eberle, Hemsky, RNH, Gagner) and no true n.1 dman. Down the line, Subban could prove to be one of the best number 1 dmen in the league and I believe that is a more valuable commodity than a top line winger.

There you go.

Montreal is looking for another RH top 4 D, not to trade our only one away. After Price, Subban is our most untouchable player.

Makes tons of sense in some ways, but little sense in other ways.

The biggest issue for me as an Oiler fan is that I have no idea what Subban wants for a contract. If he wants a huge payday, then probably not the deal I would want.

I think Subban will bring the Oilers more closer and faster in becoming a Contender team than Yakupov. Therefore, Yakupov + 2nd round 2013 for PK Subban.

I'd be on the fence. Turn that to a conditional first based on them making the playoffs and I'd be tempted, which is shocking considering I've never been very high on Yakupov, but that kind of potential return is intriguing. However, Subban is in a 3-way tie with Price and Couture for my favourite player, hence I'd be unlikely the accept this.

This is partially true. The other factor that would make me hesitate is the unknown from Yakupov. Sure, he has proven nothing yet. But he could also blossom into the next 40-50 goal scorer, in which case I'd rather keep him.

I still probably accept the trade, but I would nervously watch Yak's progression.

Isn't this the 6th or 7th time we've done this in the last month???

Montreal says no. They need Suban.
Edmonton says no. They have Schultz and Petry.
No.
Thanks

I'm not understanding why Edmonton is passing on this but I guess their fans would know their situation better than me.

Subban would easily be the best player on that defense and while Yak is great, he's the 4th out of 4 of their big forwards.

I think value is fairly similar. But Montreal can't really afford to move Subban. They'll have to hope some combination of Galchenyuk, Pacioretty, Collberg, Plekanec, etc can create a forward group good enoguh to build around.

Very likely they'll need to find another high end piece for their top 6, at some point but if they move Subban than they're really hurting longterm on D (at least in terms of top pairing).

I'd say no if I was Montreal. Personally, I think Subban will go on to be one of the very best d-men in the entire league and one of the top 10-20 most valuable assets in the league. I know those are lofty predictions, but I don't even like the Habs and it's just the feeling I get.

Scoring wingers are a lot easier to come by than puck-moving offensive d-men. Bergevin does not do this if he is smart.

Lets say STL misses the playoffs and wins the lottery selecting Seth Jones 1st overall..
Would you trade him for J.Benn just because Benn would be your #1 forward and Jones your #3 Dman?

EDM is happy with who they selected 1st overall.. He may be a #4 here at the moment but has the potential to be a franchise player.

Hasn't this one been beaten to death? Both sides hate the idea, which probably means its a fair deal but whatever.....
