It's like getting a top 10 draft pick for free right now

That's the only reason I see all the hoop-la about him. Teams are in the mindset that they are getting a free pick and I don't blame them for that. I cannot image how hectic this would be if a player of Yakupov's caliber was available. However if he had signed with the Ducks he would have just been another good prospect and no one would give him another thought. Personally I think Brendan Smith is much, much better than Schultz.
