90% of Yakupov trade proposals are from other teams fans, including this one. Try to pay attention.

And with a cap hit they would have no way of affording, especially in light of his production to date. The Hawks would have to try to lowball him as a RFA and he could bolt for the KHL in response. No thanks.

Chicago is about the worst fit possible for Yakupov.

Time will tell which is the real Yak.

That is a quality package for an underachiever.

Only problem is that the Hawks don't like Russians, so that alone puts a damper on the concept.

You literally just said Chicago wouldn't trade Versteeg for Yakupov. And that no other team would give the value of Versteeg for Yakupov. Are you deleriious? This is a horrible Yak proposal, one of the worst, and considering some of the crap Yak deals we have seen proposed, that is saying something. Give your head a shake.

If it matters - Yak hasn't done much of anything...

Truthfully it doesn't matter... at least not as much as many are claiming. He was drafted 2 years ago for christ sake. The only player with more points than him from the draft year is Galchenyuk. And it's a negligible difference.

For a forum that values young players and prospects as much as this one does, it is odd that Nail Yakupov seems to be the only player who has peaked 100 games into his NHL career as a 20 year old.

I agree with you....

Joe Thornton had like 9 points in his rookie season - look how that turned out.

However I'm extremely skeptical when it comes to Russians tho... They could pull a Radulov at any second...

Or, ya know, they could be like Datsyuk, Gonchar, Markov, Khabibulin, Nabakov; and stay well into their late 30s. The idea that Yak has less value because a couple guys went back to Russia is crap.

Any player can pull a Radulov now a days. Sobotka just did it. O'Reilly almost did it as well before the Flames signed him to an offer sheet.

It's not just Russians.

Correction: one Hawks fan. Who hasn't even bothered to post after posting this silly trade proposal.

Every other Hawks fan has no interest in this deal for a myriad of reasons.

1st of all most of the posting you are referring to are not started by Oilers fans . I am one of the few who wanted to trade Yakupov for a big centre . With the Trades Mac T has made and RFA he has signed plus drafting LD I am for keeping him now . Mac T took over the team just over a year ago and has replaced 16 of 23 players . He added size , some grit , some NHL D and he drafted for size . If the Team gels we could be decent , if we gel and the kids take a step forward and one of our goalies prove to be a true # 1 we could be very good . All ifs . If it does not work out we have a shot at McDavid . We will have to see , but as of now I would not trade Yakupov .

Maybe the Oilers can paddle junk for McDavid he has not done anything . Yakupov did score more goals as a rookie then anyone ? I guess that is nothing .

Notice to all team s we will take your players with Yakupov potential for crap LOL .

Strange you should mention only players that had success in NA & therefore a reason to stay.
With Kovalchuk opting to void his contract (to NJs delight) it makes every Russian suspect as a bolt risk.
Most that bolted were surprised to find they couldn't get by on offense alone even if that worked in the 3 branches of the CHL.

Maybe you should trade him for Vinny. They're both #1 picks after all.

Wow I'm surprised this thread is still open lol.

The reason why this trade would never happen from a Hawks point of view is Coach Q would destroy Yakupov for his defensive lapses and I would see reduced playing time and time in the press box for him until he ups his effort on that end of the ice. Yak isn't Patrick Kane, and even now Kane is about average defensively.

Yak would die under the Q regime of accountability. So,eyeing he has not experienced in his short career. Let alone where he would play on the Hawks....3rd line? No need for such a deal.

Yakupov is 20 years old. If your coach can't utilize a raw talent like that and mold him into a useful player, he's probably not a good coach.

The value for the Hawks is off the charts here.
