When did Tarasenko morph into Yakupov? He's not that good
He was thought of as being the closest to Hall and Seguin offensively at the time of his draft, but the Russian factor really hit him hard because he was already signed for another 2 years. He possesses good speed, a great first step, an elite release, he's creative offensively, and he has always been a man among boys. Since being drafted he has been one of the best prospects in the world by captaining his country to gold in the WJC and by dominating the KHL in limited ice time in the regular season and playoffs. He has 30-30 potential written all over him...At least.
