Despite being shadowed, and regardless of linemates, I'd like to see him (at least once) put on a Tarasenko or Kuznetsov performance at this level. He certainly has the talent to do so. But for some reason he hasn't been able to carry a team on his back while being the 'go to guy' yet.
Yaks destroyed the Canadian JR team last January. 4 A's in that game.
This tourny means jack and ****, Yakupov is scoring goals in the KHL with limited opportunity.
HF Oil just being manic depressive again is all.
