You get a cookie. (And not just to complete the ensemble. )

While I'm not exactly in a rush to add More Flashy Skill, I do think Yakupov potentially represents an opportunity to bring that in in a form that we can actually use. He's obviously not there yet, and I wouldn't expect him to be an immediate payoff, but I have enough confidence in our team structure and system now that I think we really could turn a problem child into a star.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
