Ok, I understand where your coming from. You could say that as he was drafted 1st in the ohl and 3rd in the nhl, he had to catch up. I don't, did it affect his draft ranking? sure! good thing for us.
I think we have a disconnect in our statements. Do I see a lateness in his development? yes I do, but not on his potential. Which is the point I was trying to make.
I think that the only reason Yakupov was first and Galchenyuk was third is the perception that Yakupov was nhl ready and Galchenyuk was not. ( I tend to agree)
Potential-wise, I see them as equals. (Maybe even a smidge better to Galchenyuk with his size)
