The issues with Nail Yakupov appear to be worsening and one Russian source I spoke to said the Hurricanes are a team to look to here... It is hard to imagine, beyond Justin Faulk, a player who could make this deal attractive...
Keep in mind this is Eklund talking, so take it for what it's worth.
It would be interesting to see who the Canes could offer to get a deal done for Yakupov. Nail is an interesting player, so I'd be wary of offering anything big.
I'd offer something around Ruutu, Dwyer, and a 2nd and Edmonton would probably ball.
A lineup of the following would be kind of interesting...
Tlusty - E. Staal - Semin
Gerbe - J. Staal - Yakupov
Skinner - Lindholm - Dvorak
Bowman - Nash - Sutter
Faulk - Sekera
Hainsey - Gleason
Harrison - Murphy
