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

Yakupov looks like a real solid player with room to grow - but why are you flipping out when people are choosing Galchenyuk over him 'right now'? he is playing better than Yakupov - even if it's a very small sample. this is where you contradicted yourself. you went from saying we should wait it out to Yakupov being the best.
i personally believe Rielly and Galchenyuk have a higher ceiling than Yakupov. Rielly has the potential ( read: potential ) to be an all-around no.1 defenseman who could put up numbers close to Erik Karlsson and Galchenyuk has the potential to be an all-around no.1 center who puts up more than a PPG.
will they reach that potential? who knows. it's very possible that they don't. it doesn't mean that Yakupov was drafted 1st overall that he's going to have the best career - it only means that he was the best player at the time.
And what is Yakupov's potential if you believe Rielly's got the potential to be the next Karlsson?
