This article about Yakupov and his enthusiasm/emotion reminds me a lot of PK. Good quotes from Tambellini.

"First of all, he loves hockey," Oilers GM Steve Tambellini told Friday. "We can’t get him out of the dressing room, he’s there the whole day. I think he’s always been that player that when he’s excited, he has a tough time controlling his emotions because he’s so happy. You don’t want to take a personality away from a player, that’s who he is."

Most of that also applies to PK...his energy and enthusiasm is not soimething you want him to lose because it makes him a good player. Therien seems to demand more emotion out of his players instead of trying to stifle it like JM.
