5'11" and 190 pounds is bigger than Crosby when he was drafted. He is an inch or two below average, but he is no St. Louis. Besides, Yakupov's game isn't based on overpowering players with size or strength. It's about speed and finesse, with a great arsenal of shots, including a fantastic one timer.

He seems to be lighting it up pretty good against men in the KHL, so where is your argument on that? Let me guess...KHL ice is a larger surface and the style is less physical.
