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
Westgarth

Faulk - Sekera
Hainsey - Gleason
Harrison - Murphy
Bellemore
Komisarek

Ward
Khudobin (Peters)

Our team would be so young if we got Yakupov, our future would be so bright. Send them Dwyer and a second.

I don't think just Dwyer and a 2nd would do, but I would do... Dwyer, Rask/Bellemore, and a 3rd for Yakupov.

 

Then go with...

 

Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin

Nathan Gerbe - Jordan Staal - Nail Yakupov

Jeff Skinner - Elias Lindholm - Tuomo Ruutu

Drayson Bowman - Riley Nash - Radek Dvorak

Kevin Westgarth

Brett Sutter

 

Anrej Sekera - Justin Faulk

Tim Gleason - Ron Hainsey

Jay Harrison - Ryan Murphy

Mike Komisarek

 

Cam Ward

Anton Khudobin (Justin Peters)

I dont think the likes or Ruutu or Dwyer and a pick is gonna get it done.  If they want to trade him they're gonna be looking at what the Bruins got for Seguin and we cant do that at all.

The thing is, they have been calling teams to trade him. So if they want to move on they will have to settle.

Also, as of now... Yakupov is not even playing for Edmonton (he has been scratched these last few games).

I'm hesitant to give up a first, but Yakupov could possibly put us over the top as a contender... I'd have to think long and hard about it.

Maybe Dwyer (3rd line winger), Bellemore (capability of being a 2nd pairing defensemen), and our 1st and 3rd round picks.

Just my opening, but Nail is not nearly consistent enough to command the the value that Edmonton places on him.

Realistically though, Edmonton would probably be asking for Ruutu, Gleason (who would have to waive his NTC), and Lindholm.

The most I would give up is Ruutu, Dwyer/Bellemore, and a 1st.

The team is winning how it is

To be honest I haven't kept up with this kid since he got drafted.  What's the beef in Edmonton?  Is he injury prone?  Why are they shopping him?

No one really knows why...

He has been scratched the last few games but will have to be back in the lineup because of injuries.

I think they are upset with his performance. I believe he only has one goal and no assists in seven games played this season.

I seriously doubt we could get him without giving up something substantial.  The real question is what do they want?

His defense sucks.  He was a -4 last year and is a -1 this year.  Still I find it hard to see them trading a kid with such upside though, especially with Taylor Hall out.  Really weird.
