No he said it isn't as great as it was before. Yakupov has his challengers, so did Hopkins and Hall, but at the end of the day he is the consensus 1st overall (something Hall and Hopkins weren't). When 8 out of 10 scouts peg you as the guy, and it's been that way for a year+ it's no fluke. We saw this with Tavares, where a guy holds down the spot for so long he ends up getting picked apart and undervalued a little just because the hype can't last.
He actually has a high chance of being worse than Kane...
He also has a much more significant chance of being better, and possibly by alot. Tell me what team is going to be offering an asset of Yakupov's caliber for Kane? I don't forsee many if any at all.
