Ofcourse Galyenchuk would have benefited from playing with Yakupov and probaly would have gaven him a run for his money. But you have to take into account what Yakupovs point totals would have increased by too.

Galyenchuk is a special player tho
I'm also inclined to think that Yakupov would have even greater totals than last year, and that he still would have been considered #1 overall. Gally might then have been considered the de facto #2 pick.
