Make It Official - Yakupov Inks Entry Level Deal

Go on and put the Red Scare tactics back in the closet for another year. Nail Yakupov has signed his entry level deal.  The deal is a standard, three year entry level deal.  Cap hit is not yet known, but you can safely assume the 2012 first overall pick might get a bonus on top of his rookie-based salary.

I don’t think Yakupov ever considered playing anywhere other than Edmonton. Now, it’s official.

Check the Yakupov deal off your list.  What’s left to do this offseason?  A second pairing NHL defenceman, and a backup goaltender.

Alright, how about a second pairing defenceman.  Get that, and I”ll be OK.
