Yakupov had that one great shift and the pass to Gagner, but otherwise, not a hugely impactful game. It's crazy to me that at this point in the season, he is deferring on a 2-on-1 where he obviously has a better angle than Gagner.

You'd expect that in the first 10-15 games of being a rookie but he's got to either rifle that or take it to the net.

Hartikainen - I guess you'd argue he hasn't been given a legitimate shot, but he doesn't play to his size and I'm not really sure where he fits on this team TBH. He's not a grinder, he's not a skill guy. He's good along the boards, but so was Laraque.
