He'll be ok.

The WHL played a very tight checking game and had some of the best dmen in the world back there tonight, and no shortage of physical forwards who gave the Russians no quarter.

How many times did Yakupov get the puck in a scoring position? The number of quality passes thrown his way could be counted on one hand. He cant do it all by himself. Even though he gets frustrated and tries on occasion. Dont worry about Yakupov. He will be filling Vancouver's net shortly.
he got shut down by a team that had pretty much no experience playing together. to think that the squad he played against tonight is better than the calibre he would play on any given night in the NHL is just wrong
