I got Couture/Yakupov.
Current roster looks like this: C - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (C) C - Claude Giroux (C/RW) LW - Matt Duchene (C/LW) LW - Logan Couture (C/LW) RW - Jordan Eberle (RW) RW - Nail Yakupov (RW) D - Erik Karlsson D - Alex Pietrangelo D - Tyler Myers D - Oliver Ekman-Larsson BENCH - John Carlson (D) BENCH - Mikko Koivu (C) BENCH - Travis Hamonic (D) BENCH - James van Riemsdyk (LW) G - Niklas Backstrom G - Evgeni Nabokov

I think Toews and Tarasenko combined will put up more points this season. But after that (maybe next year and in the future), I think you will have the better duo.
Your roster looks pretty sick, lacking a bit in net, but still decent.
I kind of made the trade because of the flexibility provided by Couture playing both C and LW. I think you benefit from having a flexible roster. I'm also not that high on Toews' fantasy value. Though, in real life hockey he's a brilliant star.
toews> couture.. TARASENKO>>>>>>Yakupov. u lost this deal. im honestly not just being a homer either. I personally don't think yakupov is gonna be that good and I think tarasenko will be a very good player for a long time. NOT A FRANCHISE CROSBYesque player but still a very skilled winger who can put up some points
