He's got a significantly larger compete level and if this team is going to "push the pace" I see Yakupov being more suited to that then Hemsky.
The reigns were put on Yakupov pretty heavily last year, so I feel we really don't know what this player is defensive yet. Will he make mistakes? Hell yes, young players do that. Can he do extremely dynamic things and change the game a bit? Hell yes he can.
