(The Value of) Yakupov to MTL

I was just reading an article on nhl.com about how Yakupov and Galchenyuk are friends, and played together in Sarnia. This got me thinking. Say Yakupov became available, be it from the impending salary cap issues the Oilers will face down the road, or another reason (lack of ice time etc.), I was wondering what would Montreal have to give up for Yakupov? They're not trading Price, or Galchenyuk because they're franchise pieces, but what would Edmonton want? I'm no good with proposals.

I like it:

Gionta - Galchenyuk - Yakupov

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole

Bourque - Plekanec - Moen

Prust - White - Armstrong

Markov - Georges

Kaberle - Emelin

Diaz - Boullion

Weber

Price

Budaj

Only thing I dont like is the fact that MTL has a $5mil third liner in Plekanec, but thats assuming Galchenyuk is ready for the first line. If not then:

Gionta - Plekanec - Yakupov

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole

Bourque - Galchenyuk - Moen

Prust - White - Armstrong

Your line up is a bit off. It would look more like this

Pacioretty - Plekanec - Gionta

Cole - Galchenyuk - Yakupov

Bourque - Desharnais - Moen

Prust - White - Armstrong

Markov - Gorges

Kaberle - Emelin

Diaz - Tinordi

Price

Budaj

That is a very strong line up even without PK.

Change Beaulieu to Tinordi, I think that would interest them alot more.

I can't say for sure they would accept it, cause with 1st overall picks like Yakupov the price always have to be extremely high, not just to compensate for his value but also to make the other club willing to move him.

I think Subban, and Pacioretty would gain the most traction.

But Subban, Eller and Tinordi would get them seriously considering it.
