Yakupov doesn't have the size. He is too small for this type of style. He seriously duplicates Ovechkin's game but Ovy has may be 5 inches on him. I am surprised how NHL scouts can be this dumb. The whole draft related to the Russians was a gong show. There should have been no way that a talented center with such size should have slipped to 11th pick where top pick Yakupov should have been a second or may be late first round pick considering the risk that smallish players barely make it big in the NHL.
