NHL execs from three different teams told me #CBJ are expected to trade their 1st round pick (likely 1st overall) at upcoming draft #yakupov

I saw this on the hfboards and thought I'd start a discussion on this. The guy is a beat writer of the Habs.

this isnt true....i mean come on ask yourself "do you really think a rebuilding team is looking to deal the 1st overall pick?

they might be listening to offers, just to keep all options open but besides that yakupov will be heading to cbj

If they do end up with the 1st overall pick, perhaps they could trade down a couple of spots and get more assets. I agree with the poster above, Russians are risky, plus they had their issues with Filatov and Zherdev.

Ummmm, who is here is surprised? The only time it wasn't up for grabs was 2005 and 2004. Every year, what they will do tell the leauge, that the 1st overall pick is avaialble, and they will just see what offers they will get for it, to see what options are available. In this case, they might actually be a little more serious, and just not doing it to see what is offered because Columbus might have another early pick from LA if they miss the playoffs. But nothing to really see here. I am expecting them to use this pick. They do have crap luck when it comes to drafting russian players, terrible luck actually.

I agree that cjb would be nervous to draft another Russian. Now would the Canucks package up to get the draft pick then shop the pick. I could see that happening. This could be a crazy year because I could see the ©Oilers and if Montreal is 3rd they could shop their pick as well

If columbus has the first overall sure but drafting Yakupov? I would have to think hard look at what happened with Shirokov. In russia doing very well 48pts in 53gp.

I would love to see Yakupov on a Canadian team. The exposure for such an electrifying player would be unreal. To see him thriving in Montreal or Edmonton would be the best thing to ever happen to the kid. He certainly has the potential to be a superstar in this league. He's fast, shifty, has a deadly shot, can make plays, and plays a strong two-way game, as advertised by his agent, Igor Larionov. His passing is also very underrated, and he has great hands and great skating ability.

He has rightfully been compared to both Pavel Datsyuk and Pavel Bure. He has an element of physicality and can hit hard, but isn't a head-hunter and uses stickwork and positioning to grab pucks from the opposition. He has explosive speed and acceleration, and can create offense every time he has the puck. He's one of those players who can bring his audience to the edge of their seats in anticipation of a great scoring chance. I've been looking forward to seeing him in the NHL for months, and to see him in Canada would be even better.

If the asking price is anywhere near the price of Nash, no thanks.

Honestly though, this gets rumored every year. Obviously any GM witht he first overall pick is gonna see what teams would offer them for it. They wouldn't be doing their jobs if they didn't.

Get on this one Gillis! Yakupov's idol = Pavel Bure. Pavel Bure's most affiliated team = Vancouver. Pavel Bure's agent = Mike Gillis...
