I propose that Edmonton trades Yakupov to Montreal for Subban and Eller.

Edmonton gets a more balanced lineup. They get an emerging star defenseman. They also get a young centre who projects to be a good top-six, two-way player.

Losing Subban will hurt Montreal. They have plenty of depth of defense, but no one as dynamic as Subban. They also lose Eller, who has shown promise since being acquired in return for Halak.

But Montreal gets a future superstar. Yakupov re-unites with his junior teammate Galchenyuk. Those two will join Carey Price to form the nucleus of a core that a contender can be built around.

If the Oilers wanted a dman instead of Yakupov, they would have either swapped picks with the Blue Jackets or just drafted Ryan Murray.

I doubt Edmonton trades him already. But if their need for more D shows by the end of the season, they might consider a trade built around that. It could be a win-win potentially.

This is surprisingly a pretty fair deal. I think Montreal and Edmonton would both accept. Montreal since they would be acquiring Yakupov and reuiniting him with Galchenyuk (we all know what they did to the OHL together), and Edmonton gets a potential franchise D man which they've been lacking for a long time.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I'm sure they signed Schultz for a reason, and with the first pick at hand, they could've drafted Murray, Dumba, Trouba, or some other top defenseman.

I think talent wise its equal, but Subban and Eller can't matchup with Yakupov's celebratory skills

Honestly, it's a ridiculous trade, and I hope jokes won't be made using bogus trade proposals.

This is my opiniion of saying the trade is preposterous and unlikely to happen.

Subban + Eller is more valuable as a combo than any one of those defensemen alone.

I agree there was probably a reason Edmonton signed Schultz. Perhaps the reason is that he was the most valuable player available.

If Edmonton is going to trade one of their 4 young stars, I get the feeling it will be Taylor Hall.

My friends who are Oilers fans say the same thing.

Unless the Oilers feel keeping Hall would be too risky given his injury history, I think they should keep him. He is a tremendous athlete. He plays very hard. He brings an element that distinguishes him from their other young stars.

But I acknowledge I seem to be in the minority here.
