The Russians just didn't seem to have any effective systems play going. It was just one guy trying to skate through four Candians. Maybe at this level Yakupov needs another good player to work with and try to give him some space, like with Kuznetsov last year.

Sure it's just going to get tougher for him at the NHL level as it should, but he will also have some pretty good players to work with, including the tournament leader in points in RNH, as well as AHL pt leaders Eberle and Schultz. Kid is gonna be fine and will benefit immensely from playing with other elite talent.
