But thats not what we are talking about. A 60pt C is not a superstar. I don't see how you could possibly argue that Yak has shown enough that you could comfortably say he turns into a perennial 40+ goal scorer and Couts has only shown that he can be a defensive, 30+ pt, 3rd line C. Again, I'm not arguing that Yakupov isn't the better player in the long run just that as of right now there is nothing to support that the difference between them is leaps and bounds.
