Im sure everyone would have picked Ovechkin before Malkin in his first 3 years in the NHL, now, im pretty sure everyone would pick Malkin over Ovechkin.

As for stats, remember that Yakupov also plays Gagner and Hemsky who have NHL experience and can score. Galchenyuk plays with another rookie and an enforcer/PK specialist. He still have 7 pts in 8 games playing on the 3rd line which is impressive.

Having 1st pick last year, Im not sure which one I would have picked, I always thought that Gally was exactly what the club needed and was more of a complete player but Yakupov's pure talent and drive was hard to resist and I cant blame Edmonton for drafting him.
