Analysis: A major disappointment in Edmonton, Yakupov will be a player to keep an eye on in St. Louis. The 23-year-old's talent is undeniable, but his track record of inconsistency and the unlikelihood of him cracking the top two lines barring injuries are definite risk factors.

Analysis: Yakupov never scored more than 17 goals in any of his four seasons with the Oilers and managed a career-low eight in 60 games last season. The 23-year-old finishes his tenure in Edmonton with 50 goals, 61 assists and a minus-88 rating in 252 games. It's unclear what kind of role he'll have on a deep St. Louis team.
