2 power play assists for Yakupov so far today. Game is in the second period and his team is leading 2-0.

2 assists in 2-0 win for Yakupov today... Ah, yes, my bad, it's just 2nd, not win.

Give him a kick in the ass to show him that you have to prove yourself and you can't be entitled, which is an issue I think a lot of young oilers have.
He has already proven himself to be their best player by a long shot.

The only reason why I'm not worried about his coach mismanaging him is because it will make him more eager to come back to NA and prove that he can excel. That and we dont need to worry about it affecting his confidence level in any way because the kid has that in droves.

Surely Mamashev is the best player, I wouldn't be so naive to call it a longshot but... come on son.

been watching almost all of the barons games so far this season...its crazy to think that Yakupov, and Klefbom will also be added to the mix next year...not to mention Hemsky..

Slightly different perspective of the top forward scorers in the KHL:

Pts per 60 minutes played (among top 100 scoring forwards in the KHL):

1 Tarasenko Vladimir 5.38
2 Backstrom Nicklas 4.94
3 Mozyakin Sergei 4.62
4 Kostitsyn Sergei 4.29
5 Kovalchuk Ilya 4.04
6 Makarov Igor 3.80
7 Malkin Evgeny 3.74
8 Yakupov Nail 3.72
9 Mirnov Igor 3.64
10 Datsyuk Pavel 3.63
11 Klimenko Gleb 3.59
12 Ovechkin Alexander 3.58
13 Radulov Alexander 3.39
14 Thoresen Patrick 3.36
15 Hodgman Justin 3.29
16 Makarov Dmitry 3.15
17 Varnakov Mikhail 3.11
18 Petruzalek Jakub 3.10
19 Suglobov Alexander 3.09
20 Starchenko Roman 3.07

Nice to see Yakupov doing so well as a rookie.

Tarasenko is in beast mode as well and should do very well when he reaches the NHL also.

Intersting stuff. Curious if you have a stat of points as a percentage of teams goals. Tarsenko looks like he will be very good in his rookie year, whenever that is.

I don't know exactly how the rules work, but I've seen CHL players join AHL clubs for playoffs sometimes. Is that a possibility here, if the KHL season wrapped and the Barons were in the playoffs? Just so he could play with the core for a few games?

I think Sarina's season would have to be over for that to happen.

Yet another perspective... again taking the current top 100 scoring forwards in the KHL and calculating their pts per 60 minutes played (1st number) AND then taking into account the goals per game of their respective teams (2nd number) and then taking the differential (3rd number). The higher the differential the better.


1 Backstrom Nicklas 4.94 3.14 1.8
2 Tarasenko Vladimir 5.38 3.89 1.49
3 Mozyakin Sergei 4.62 3.18 1.44
4 Kostitsyn Sergei 4.29 3 1.29
5 Petruzalek Jakub 3.1 2.28 0.82
6 Datsyuk Pavel 3.63 2.82 0.81
7 Yakupov Nail 3.72 2.96 0.76
8 Stapleton Tim 2.87 2.14 0.73
9 Mirnov Igor 3.64 3 0.64
10 Radulov Alexander 3.39 2.82 0.57
11 Malkin Evgeny 3.74 3.18 0.56
12 Lehtera Jori 2.91 2.39 0.52
13 Ovechkin Alexander 3.58 3.14 0.44
14 Zherdev Nikolai 2.62 2.34 0.28
15 Indrasis Miks 2.4 2.14 0.26
16 Klepis Jakub 2.69 2.43 0.26
17 Karsums Martins 2.37 2.14 0.23
18 Suglobov Alexander 3.09 2.89 0.2
19 Kovalchuk Ilya 4.04 3.89 0.15
20 Zhmakin Stanislav 2.23 2.09 0.14
21 Hytonen Juha-Pekka 2.4 2.28 0.12
22 Hodgman Justin 3.29 3.18 0.11
23 Makarov Dmitry 3.15 3.07 0.08
24 Varnakov Mikhail 3.11 3.07 0.04
25 Dadonov Evgeny 2.51 2.48 0.03

So yet another view and yet again, Yakupov looks like he's performing very well offensively... especially taking into account he's a rookie on a decent but not outstanding offensive team.

Backstrom having a great year so far under this stat and again Tarasenko showing that he's likely more than ready for a shot at the NHL when/if they get going again.

I am not sure if this is true. Here is an article outlining what happened.

http://www.theobserver.ca/2012/09/29...to-play-in-khl

I you look at the following passages:

Quote:
At the time, Hockey Canada claimed it would not sign the transfer card because Yakupov was contractually bound to play for his former OHL team, the Sarnia Sting, during the NHL lockout. The Sting, in turn, claimed they had no part in denying Yakupov the opportunity to play in the KHL.

“We wouldn't do anything to hinder any kid," said Sarnia head coach and GM Jacques Beaulieu at the time. "We're not in the business of standing in the way of any player's development. We would never do that."

In Friday's announcement, the Canadian and Russian organizations said the following: “The OHL has determined that Yakupov had no independent legal advice when, at the age of 17 years old, he signed his contract with Sarnia.
“His release goes into effect immediately.”
it would seem that Yakupov has no more contractual obligation to the Sting. As such I believe that there is a good chance he would be allowed to play in OKC once his season in the KHL is over.

I think the Russian NT may have other plans for him at the World Championships and I think Yakupov would prefer the WC over a playoff stint in the AHL.
The only fly in the ointment is that the Russian Ice Hockey Federation is not nearly as as keen as Hockey Canada in taking junior age players to the World Championship. It happens from time to time.

If the season is cancelled the Russian National team has a fair number of options. They could essentially field their Olympic team. Up front they have Ovechkin, Malkin, Semin, Datsyuk, Kovalchuk, Radulov, Semin and then older kids like Tarasenko and Kutsnetsov.

Given the offensive threats they already have you have to wonder if they would take a chance on a kid that has some issues defensively. He is not really the 4th line type.

Anyone following his game today? I just checked the KHL site and it says he has 10:47, 2 SOG and an assist through two periods.

Now has 2 assists (1 primary, 1 secondary, both even strength), 3 SOG, and 13:03 TOI in the third period. NEFTEKHIMIK currently leading TORPEDO 4-3.

Nail has 2 assists, with about 10 minutes left in the game. Both at even strength, one primary and one secondary. So with this game he is back up over 1 PPG.

sucks for me that Nail is goalless since before Subway Series. every next game he has increasing chances for an outburst, and now my slumping Lokomotiv is next on his itinerary.
