In any case, I still feel that Yakupov should have received a Calder nomination as one of the most dynamic young players in the NHL this year.
If you take context into consideration, Yakupov's totals are the most impressive (by far). He started the season with offensively inept linemates. When he was put on lines with solid players, he produced at a fantastic rate. Of course, Galchenyuk didn't get the same PP opportunities that Yakupov did, so he could have improved his totals as well.
