I've been saying that for a while now. I am not anti-Stu or a Stu groupie, but I don't agree that the copious amounts of praise heaped on him are a bit premature.
RNH and Hall have done well, but a monkey could (would) have made those picks. And I expect Yakupov to be more of the same.
The thing is, a lot of the picks have outperformed their draft position in their respective leagues after getting drafted, so that is definitely promising. But until anyone other than a #1 overall makes an impact at the NHL level, I think the praise should be kept in check a bit more.
