Excuses.
Yakupov has been pretty awful and that's mostly on him.
He can't handle the puck, is making bad reads on passes, is trying too hard to skate through defenders and has done nothing defensively but cherry pick looking for a break the other way. It doesn't really mean much long term but lets call a spade a spade, he's having a subpar tournament.

Zharkov was actually more impressive yesterday. He was pretty relentless on the puck and showed off some nice skills.
