You need a whole lot of things in a team, and a guy who succesfully put up points on the board in the NHL....you do need them at some point. If Gally ends up not being too physical and yet put 60-70 points on the board every year...that's a hell of a 12th pick. And would have been enough for a 5th-8th pick as well. This is the 2012 draft we're talking about here....not the 2013.
Koivu was his best in big games and was the ultimate team player, comparing Yashin to him is way out of the ballpark, not even left field.
