Terrible comparison there. Yakupov dominated the O for 2 seasons. He had nothing left to prove there, which is why he went back to the KHL during the lockout.

Laughton has held his own through 4 games thus far, but so did Sbisa. He needs to dominate a level instead of getting 4th line minutes with no special teams work. There's no need to mortgage this kid's future to fill a small hole in the lineup.
