Not the exact quote..
He just seemed irritated, kid needs to loosen up, we got prospects with similar skillsets to Murray(maybe not character)
Setting up Yakupov is a playmakers dream..
RNH wanted Murray they roomed together at the World Championship and became fast friends. I'm sure far as Nuge is concerned he already has his linemates in Hall and Eberle what's he need this Russian guy for. What Yakupov will help is our scoring depth and pairing him with Gagner or Hemsky or both will hopefully lead to some great statistical seasons for Hemsky and/or Gagner
