I like how Yaks is condemned to not being on Hall or Hopkins level after playing a trap system in a tournament that I'm sure neither Hopkins nor Hall competed in. Great comparison. Now WJC performances compared might demonstrate something between Hall and him.

Yakupov has looked dangerous tonight, no question. His creativity, elusiveness as well as high IQ have all been evident tonight. He even created a solid breakout in the first after covering in front of his net, intercepting a pass and then decking out two OHLers before exiting the zone. It'd be nice if he was allowed to think offence or be on the receiving end of a breakout instead of covering for his linemates. I thought AK was drafted as a winger...
