Yakupov was putting up better numbers then Stamkos pre injury in his draft year and put up 18 in 22 the year after his draft year in the KHL
Both did play a great amount of minutes either
Tarasenko put those numbers being a 3rd liner though and having much less TOI and zero PP. As soon as they promoted him to the 1st line he started to produce on a PPG level.
And as to juniors you can't actually compare them. Tarasenko led his team to WJC championship, and Yakupov... Well, you may say anything, but he definitely didn't look as a good leader, when he had to.
