Is Yakupov really the best player [highest potential ceiling] out of the 2012 draft?

Edit: to repeat what others have already stated. Playing with two guys like Gags and Hemsky is a tough position for a rookie as well. Both players can be unpredictable at times, especially together.
You do realize that Yakupov playing on the 2nd line with Gagner and Hemsky is a little better than the 3rd line with Eller/Gallagher and Prust (who's had so many missed easy goals).
