Prospects are going to have to be a lot better than that.Think your top prospects;
I know it looks like a lot but since you don't have a 1st round pick in the middle of the draft it is going to take quanity and still what is the chance that any of these players are top 6 or top 4 players.
I was joking. Guess I could've used the . But if all it'll take to get first overall Pick is Tatar +Jurco+Kindl+ . You can sign me up for that trade.
I think that instead of the 2nd round pick montreal would have to add a young prospect like beaulieu for example
I was implying that Montreal would win the lottery.

I don't think, as a Habs fan, that it is smart to trade our 2013 first round pick. Even if there are a lot of changes in management, it could be possible that we still won't make the playoffs. I'm not sure I'd trade the 3rd overall pick (as of now) and a very unpredictable pick (to be honest, it could be anywhere from 1st overall to 28th) for Yakupov, as good as he is and as much I would like him on my team.
If Columbus doesn't wanna draft a Russian again (can't blame them), Islanders might put together a package. They might also be okay with standing put and taking whoever of Murray/Dumba falls to them, though. For the sake of the thread I'll bite:
I don't think they'd trade booth. We'd get Yakupov to play with Kesler and Booth on the 2nd line. They'd do it if it was Schneider + Raymond + Schroeder + 2 1sts
Schneider is the best piece in that deal (from Van), no way that gets it done. It doesn't work to keep piling on late 1sts - an extra (late) first round pick is not going to do anything for CBJ like an elite scoring winger.
