Yakupov to me is nothing special. I do not like his style at all. I haven't watched him a tonne so I guess my opinion isn't written in stone, nor should it be relied upon. However the games I have seen of him haven't wowed me at all. I would much rather have a guy like Nichushkin who seems to grind it out more like a Canadian guy.
I imagine the plan is to send Mark to Gary Roberts camp this summer similar to what they did with Lowry last year. I imagine he didnt go last year because the Jets probably didn't think he was phsically ready at that point and secondly they didn't want to put him through that intense a program after the long year he had the previous year. All in all im not that concerened, as has been mentioned he probably wont be playing as much of a trench/grinding role in the NHL as well I have no doubt that Mark will continue to improve his balance and strength over the next few years given his work ethic and character.
