Ok so you think that Marc Bergevin is saying no to a trade that looks like this: To Montreal:F Nail Yakupov To Edmonton :Emelin, Pateryn and a 2nd rounder Im sorry but i strongly disagree with you on this one.

I have a hard time believing that his numbers will significantly reduce his value. The fact that Edmonton is such a wreck from management down to coaching ,down to the actual roster, it kind of excuses his point totals. When compared to Galchenyuk, he only has 13 points less in 4 more games. That really is not too shabby considering he's played with some meh players and an 18 yr old center this season. Also , he's only played under the one coach who he clearly doesent get along with. So in conclusion , while numbers usually do matter , Yakupov's value is not hampered because of them. Also my trade projections are according to what Edmonton would expect in return not what other GM's are willing to give. I still think that if all it would take to land Yakupov is a bottom pairing D and a Pateryn type prospect then Yakupov would already be in another city.

Also, Williams is a UFA but i think LA might be willing to lose him for nothing in the offseason if it means taking another run at the cup.

Ya i do remember and i love the guy lol. He can't skate to save his life but boy can he rack up the PP points. Also that series against Ottawa was a complete and total **** show , our team is more mature and better equipped this time around to incorporate Ryder into the lineup.

If that was the case, then there would be absolutely no point for Edmonton to trade him. Teams do not trade away former first overall picks for the value that you place on Yakupov . While his stats are not great and he does need a change of scenery , he is still a large asset to the Oilers. Any team enquiring to acquire Yakupov will need to offer at least one top 4 Dman( Emelin) , at least one blue chip prospect (Tinordi or Beaulieu) and potentially a low first or high second round draft pick

Would love to have Justin Williams(Also love to hate him , 2006 was our year:( ) but i doubt LA lets him go as he is crucial to their teams success. Would rather have Ryder than Stafford for that right handed shot.

DD is not getting traded. He has more value to our team than he has on the trade market. In other words, the team will not get better by any incoming player that is traded for DD (unless Antoine Vermette, but still unlikely to happen)and i really dont think this is a situation where the team gets better by his subtraction.

DD and Bournival wouldn't get you anywhere close to landing Boone Jenner. You would need to think more along the lines of Gallagher + . Have to agree with you on Jenner though , that guy plays hockey the right way and it would be awesome to see him on the Habs.

I assume pun intended lol.I actually completely forgot about that magical playoff run he had but i think i would still rather have Jagr or Ryder. Would be fun to finally cheer for Jagr and finally have him beside Pleks. I would want Ryder just because it would be funny for him to come back a third time , but in all honesty , he could probably still help the PP.
