There are a bunch of puckmoving top pairing Dmen in the league, Yandle is good but there are plenty of Yandle level talents around the league.
Hanzal is a good, shutdown center but there are plenty of those around the league as well.
OEL is the definition of a unique talent. He has it all, it's just a matter of him continuing on his current development path which is on a huge, upward swing.
If Yakupov fulfills his potential, he has all the ability to be elite. Players with his speed, shot and puckhandling ability don't come around too often.
