I do agree with OP that Stu was in the minority of drafting Murray or Reinhart.
I disagree. I think some of you are looking for something that isn't there. He doesn't have the same twinkle in his eyes that he did in 2010 but I think it has less to do with Yakupov and more to do with drafting 1st overall just not being as exciting after 3 straight years.

Here he is talking about RNH last year. Very similar mannerisms. I think that's just him.
