Yes. What he lacks in pure raw talent. You know, speed, shooting. Galchenyuk is good, but Yakupov is way better for these things. Don't be a homer.

Galchenyuk is still the better player of the two, IMHO, for a multitude of other factors, primarily his hockey IQ and vision. But also work ethics, and decision making process.
