Yakupov projects to be a far better forward than Bogo does as a dman. And I like Bogo a lot, as previously stated.
I think the highlight of his point is the fact that Bogo has already proven to be a solid #2 Dman for the Jets but still has the potential to become a franchise Dman. On the other hand, Yakupov has not proven he can be an elite winger in the NHL but he most definitely has the potential to be. At the very least Bogosian will top out at where he is at right now, but if we use the potential argument on Yakupov then it's hard to disregard Bogo's potential also.
