Or even worse, if the 5th is a bust, you will never live it down.

And let's not forget what the Philly trade for Lindros got:

Peter Forsberg, Ron Hextall, Chris Simon, Mike Ricci, Kerry Huffman, Steve Duchesne, a 1st round selection in 1993, a 1st round selection in 1994, and $15,000,000 cash.

And the Rangers before that offered:

Doug Weight, Tony Amonte, Alexei Kovalev, John Vanbiesbrouck, three first round draft picks (1993, 1994 & 1995) and $12 million.
i don't see anything like that in return since lindros was such a huge prospect compared to yakupov, but i'd certainly hope for more than what DK is offering. i don't see moving back to the 5th giving us the players that we need and tambo is a scaredy cat when it comes to making deals.
