I value opinions of the others more for players that I had limited viewings of. And they watch alot more than 150 games a year if you ask me. I know I do.
Speaking of limited viewings...how much did you get to watch Yakimov play? Just the Super Series?

Anyway...I wouldn't call Yakimov a ND but I wouldn't pick him before round 5 for exactly the same reason as Carey Price said. You're looking at a guy whose ceiling is likely a 3rd/4th line grinder, and he's over in Russia. Why take the gamble?
