While I think it's a tad premature to assume that the Yakupov CHL/KHL brouhaha actually says anything about the player himself, I do admit that it's kind of nice that it's not something that can be used to point and laugh more at us this time.

Oveckin played in Russia after he was drafted 1st overall and it didn't make him a bad player. Another example how North Americans create their own rules and expect the rest of the world to honor them. Yakupov wants to play in the NHL or at home, what is your problem? Those who can't solve the lockout problem want Nail to play in juniors? Do your job and don't dictate the guy where he has to play since you screwed up the NHL season.

I would have just stopped right here. That's enough to make the point.

Although it would also be fair to point out that Ovechkin, when drafted, was still playing for Dynamo Moscow, and not a CHL team, so there was no chance of there being any such "controversy" to begin with.

Thanks for the kind words - this is something I've been mentioning from time to time. Honestly, I think those of us really in the know were viewing Alex Galchenyuk as filling the biggest need in the system; and he may end up being the best player taken at the draft. However, having seen Ryan Murray play, knowing fully what kind of player he can be, I was very excited to see us take him second overall.

YEAH, I mean it's not like Nail signed a contract or anything. How dare we North Americans actually expect people to honor their commitments. What will we do next? Expect people to take responsibility for their own actions? BLASPHEMY!

1. This was not a North American Rule. It was a IIHF rule. They are the ones who ruled him ineligible because a proper transfer request was not made.

2. Darren Dreger reported that Yakupov has been cleared to play in the KHL because he signed his CHL contract as a 17 year old with no independent legal representation. I don't know how that would work in Europe but that is a legal loophole that works in Yakupov's favor with our "North American Rules"

3. All of this could have been avoided if Yakupov and the Oilers would have simply asked for the proper transfer like any other player. Sarnia wouldn't necessarily have said no if they tried the proper route. Sometimes people want the common courtesy and respect of simply being asked considering the rules should clearly state what the transfer process is for the CHL and Europe.

Who cares where he spent the last season? Even hockey Canada admits that Yakupov's contract with Sarnia was illigal since he was under 18 years old and the contract was signed without his representatives. I'm pretty sure Yakupov wasn't aware of all the circumstances, otherwise he would have stayed home.

Slavery was destroyed a few hundreds years ago. Yakupov signed contract with the Oilers to play in the NHL for a few millions dollars, not with Sarnia to fool around with kids for free and make money for the OHL when he has a chance to play for his hometown team in the KHL and make some cash for himself and his family. That's his money NHL wants him to lose cause of their own stupidity.
On the other hand people in Sarnia don't know how to sign contracts with players under 18 years old and then pretend they own the rights to hold the best teenager in the world. Looks like greedy stupidity.

And even some of us who know nothing thought he was the way to go.

It's early (only 5 games in), but Boone Jenner is leading the OHL in scoring with 12 points.
