It may be that, even if Yakupov is the better offensive threat, our team may have been better off in the long term with the centerman.

Too bad there was no bigger sample size for Gally in his draft year. If he had not been injured he may have been ranked #1.

Could be an Ovechkin vs. Malkin scenario.
Everyone wants a Big Center.

6'2"+ centers with 0.70+ PPG in the NCAA @ 18
Jujhar Khaira EDM 2012 RD3 #63
Charlie Coyle SJS 2010 RD1 #28
N. Bugstad FLD 2010 RD1 #19
T.J. gallardi COL 2007 RD2 #55
R. Kesler VCR 2003 RD1 #23

He knows how to deal with a little contact when does not have the puck.
