I expect him to be better regardless of the system that the Russian coach implemented.
Yakupov needs to learn how to play better when the game isn't wide open or he will never reach his potential in the NHL which has become a tight checking league.
The tight checking isn't the problem. The fact that no one is passing him the puck in the offensive zone is the problem. His entire game is built around breaking in off the rush and slipping into open spots to let off laser beam one timers.
He's beavertapping like crazy because he knows his teammates have managed to negate one of the most potent offensive weapons in the tournament with their poorly coached selfish play.
