Combine this with the fact that Galchenyuk is bigger and is a center, I believe we may have snagged the best player in the draft.
From the few times I've seen Yakupov play and only seeing Galchenyuk's highlights it's probably not the best way to judge but I'd take Galchenyuk too.
Like you said, Galch's size & position really tips the scales in his favour. Alex's intangibles seem a little better too. Galch's toolbox just seems to be bigger. He can kill you in so many ways. If he's not better now I think he'll definitely have the upper hand in the long term.
