IMO, you absolutely cannot move Yakupov from RW. He's at his deadliest there like most Russians who've been brought up to play off-wing.
He might even circle the net less on LW. On RW when he circles the net he is on his forehand the entire time to look for a pass. On LW he'd be on his back hand the whole time. We might see more of this



Agree on keeping Yakupov on RW. He looks lethal from there. And you are correct too in that Hall and Yakupov shouldn't be on the same line.
