Also why is that so bad? Potential aside, yakupov has yet to play 1 game in the NHL so we do not know how good he will be.

We have already seen how good Couts is.

Again, right now, I'll take Couts
I am an Oiler fan . If i was given the choice i would take Couts over Yakupov . It would make us a more balance team . I do not think Yakupov will jump to the KHL ,but there is still the fact that Russian players are Moody and are hard to keep happy . They do not like playing a team game where the team comes first . They player for their selves ,points ,goals and so on . How many russian drop in front of a puck and come up spitting out teeth and keeps playing . Few and far between . Yakupov will put up points . He will also play very little Defence .

Centers>wingers . I would take a 30/30 center over a 40/40 winger unless a team is stacked at center . Couts could have gave RNH a run for first over all if he never got mono .
