Edm-pit

To Pittsburgh: Nail Yakupov

To Edmonton: Kris Letang

Edmonton does this contingent on Letang agreeing to a reasonable extension. Gives the Oilers a legit #1 defenceman that they need. Smid and Petry is an abysmal top defensive pairing and Letang would address that need and provide help for Schultz running the PP. Pittsburgh cuts significant cost and adds a high end skilled player with elite upside. Yakupov has 2 years left on his ELC which should help Pitt out with the lower cap and the coming Malkin extension.

Yakupov is under team control for a long time and still has tremendous upside. Letang is a great player and the value is fair but longterm i see this as a loss for Edmonton. We don't need to rob Peter to pay Paul. With J.Schultz we have our PP QB top 4 offensive wizard, don't need Letang.

NO from PIT point of view. If we are trading Letang, itīs for the compensation both on the wing AND on the D. Where would our D be without Letang? Yakupov still needs a lot of work to be done.

Value for this is off, and the Pens don't have a D to replace Letang. NHL proven talent>potential, so this deal is heavily favored towards the Oilers. In order for the Pens to trade him to the Oilers, they would need to offer a Staal type of return (replacement top-4 offensive D, top-10 pick, decent prospect), which leads me to the offer of:

Letang (with an extension) for Schultz, Hartikainen and the 7th overall pick

If the Oilers won't give up that, they won't get Letang.

You'd take Eberle but not Yakupov. Haha okay.

Wasn't this just posted like 2 days ago. It's still a resounding no from the Oilers.

6 more guaranteed years for a former 1st overall, historically known to be upper echelon players, or a top defenseman for 1 year.

Just seems like poor asset management for EDM.

I love bashing oiler fans, but asking say for Yakupov AND Schultz? that is just silly. Letang is one year away from being UFA, you do realize that right? You are not going to get a player such as yakupov, who looks like he is turning into the real deal for a player one year away from being able to walk away. Let alone getting a top D man as well

It's not as silly as the original proposal.

You're right. It's drastically worse. We wouldn't touch the original offer, and you think we should add?

lolololol are you kidding me?

If you don't think Edmonton would trade Yakupov for one of the top-3 defenders in the league straight up you are absolutely delusional.

This is why people affiliated with the NHL laugh at the trade board. It's laughable some of the claims on here. A prospect is more valuable than a Norris finalist? Haha, right. He wasn't even the best rookie this year, so why should he get Letang back? That's like saying that Gallagher should get Weber back.

He's going to be a great player in like 2 or 3 years. But right now, his value isn't even close to Letang's. NHL proven talent>potential. That's why we rarely see top prospects traded, because they never have that high of value. GMs realize that they won't get full value of a player before they are completely developed.

The point is, your claim that Yakupov>Letang is not only laughable, but it makes me question your hockey knowledge.

Top 3? Seriously?

The Oilers have Yakupov's rights for 6 more years. They'd have Letang's for 1. Not a chance they move him straight up for Letang.

Lol no. Keep Kris "No defence" Letang. The Oilers are not trading Yakupov.

How is Yakupov a prospect? He lead our team in goals last season... There's literally no chance we move Yak for one year of Letang. The fact you think that favors Edmonton is just laughable

No way the Oilers accept this deal;Kris Letang was beyond atrocious against Boston.





Top 3 Defender?

No way in hell a UFA-to-be Letang is worth a controllable high end asset like Yakupov.

with this trade, Letang instantly becomes the Oilers best defender (say what you want about the Boston series, he's head and shoulders better than what the Oilers have).

that cost for Letang is not that high, though. Letang for scraps? definitely not. but Letang for Yakupov? the Oilers don't do that.

plus, if the Pens pulled that off, they still have to find another defenseman. it's counter-productive despite getting a great winger.
