So do I. I'll take the physical two-way centre with a high-end skill set over a highly skilled winger any day of the week. Not to mention there are a number of intriguing D prospects from last draft which will take a few years to start making an impact in the NHL.

Wingers are rarely the best player from a draft IMO, unless they have ~Kovalchuk potential (which Yakupov doesn't have IMO) or its a weak draft with no franchise C/D

Centres/D can simply control a game much better than wingers can. So assuming one of the centres or D can become legitimate franchise talents, they should be able to be a stronger core piece than Yakupov will be.
