Yakupov had an abysmal tournament as well. Does that make him not NHL ready either?

I'm curious because I only remember a very very small sample size of this board saying this kind of stuff prior to this tournament when he was the most dominating player in the CHL.

He'll be in the NHL next season, and that would be the right call. This season is a toss-up, I'd lean towards leaving him in junior mostly to assess some of our pro guys and see where it is exactly we stand as a team, who needs to stay and who needs to go.
