The reason is that HF staff has had an irrational hatred for Yakupov for a while now. The most recent Calder poll had him outside of the top 10 behind the likes of Galchenyuk and Silferberg despite being top 5 in rookie scoring. If you want to go by current production, Yakupov 3 spots behind Galchenyuk is absurd. If you want to go by potential, it would help Yakupov's case even more.
