Tarasenko on the other hand seems like a two way player, great goal scoring ability, high IQ, good vision.

If he can play like this for 75% of the Blues games...he's their biggest star in his rookie season.
Yakupov definitely has to learn the defensive side of the game and that will come with time as Krueger will not let him get away without learning it. I hope you don't really see him as a one dimensional. He may not become one of the best two-way forwards in the league but his passing and vision are not bad at all at the moment.
