I think yakupov had a real hard time adapting to a system last year. May have been his first experience with such a structured game. He struggled horribly with it. Looked like a lost puppy on the ice. Always a step or two away from the puck. He couldn't help the team with any puck retrieval or support.
That being said when he did get the puck there was some great creative things done. Towards the end of the year he got more involved with the play.
If yak can anticipate the play better and improve in his puck pursuit and retrieval he should have a good bounce back year.
