I don't think he's saying Yakupov has NO energy, but that Tarasenko has more. I'll wait until they've established themselves more to make a judgement like that (and even then, I may think it's a weird comparison), but Tarasenko absolutely has a feistiness and explosiveness that can make many other players look sedate. Pretty much all I've seen of Yakupov so far is this year's WJC and I didn't see the same thing at all - but I'm the first one to dismiss a small sample size.
