    It is early, but so far Yak is looking great. If he has about 35-45 points by the trade deadline, what would you give to acquire him?

    I honestly hope the Avs re-sign him, but who knows. I'm guessing a 3rd for him?

    Yakupov's track record makes little sense for a team to trade for him as a playoff piece.

    Yakupov has had trouble finding the right fit and so far he has been producing well for Colorado he should re-sign with them instead of moving to another team where there is good chance he wont fit well with the new team. If he ain't producing then I know I wouldn't want him on my team.

    I would be very surprised if he was moved because in scenario one where he has a bad season, nobody will likely want him and in the second scenario where he has a good season, the young Avs would likely want to keep him.

    If he has 45 points at the deadline I think he'll be retained

    Agree with the others, if he has a good season, no reason the Avs wouldn't try to re-sign him.

    If Yak continues to play like he is jhe would re-sign with the Avalance no way would he want to play elsewhere. Avalance have given him top 6 role to begin with and talented linemates.

    There aren't many teams that would give Yakupov the same opportunity he's getting in Colorado. He's a good fit there, no reason for them to trade him away.

    Glad Yakupv is doing well and hope he keeps it up . He a very likeable guy . As for the OP A former 1st OA that cost the Avs nothing to acquire won't be traded . If he good Avs keep him and hope he can finally live up to his draft hype giving them a 1st OA talent for free . If he doesn't have a good year no one is going to want him . It will be his 3rd team over his short career and I just don't think he will be given another chance .

    Wouldn't be the first top draft pick to drift around the NHL before finding his talent with another team....I realize he was done with the Oilers, but they dealt both Yakupov and Justin Shultz for peanuts.....and it's apparent that all they needed was a change of scenery......one of the baffling things about the NHL.....how one high pick can flop and get run out of town, only to re-surface and realize all that talent somewhere else.

    conditional 3rd-4th.

    He would need to have 45-50pts in 60ish games to be in 2nd range

    Avs will likely keep him , I know it's very early in the season but so far it's a good fit for both sides , Yak and the Avs.

    all the talent? pretty sure the previous busts just ended up becoming depth players.
    Daigle and Stefan come to mind. I think Yak has a chance to be a 50pt player in the right situation. I think he is a year or 2 away from bolting to the KHL though..

    Aves would be better off re-signing him. Nobody will pay Sakic's asking price.:sarcasm:

    24 year old, former 1st overall pick who is playing well on a rebuilding team? Seems like a no brainer to keep around for the Avs.

    Hope he keeps it up. As far as deadline value goes, it's hard to say. He played poorly on Anaheim, and was **** with St.Louis. He's been gifted minutes in Colorado, would he have the same impact on a contender that would likely have him on a 2nd or 3rd line?

    I wanted us to sign Yak to a PTO for training camp. Oh well. I always thought he was capable of being productive, just needed the right situation. Good for him.

    I feel like Yak is the type of guy that wouldn't want to leave. He had such a rough few years and lost a lot of confidence. He's talked about changing sticks, equipment and preparations, he's talked about feeling lonely, I feel like if he succeeds, plays well and meshes with his teammates, he'd take a friendly deal to stay in Colorado.

    Good old Russian kid

    also wanted to habs to sign him, not because of Galchenyuk, just always liked the kid and thought he could end up flourish under the right circonstances! no clue if it would have been with the habs, i doubt it but still!! I hope he can keep going
