The thing I love about Yak is that he has gotten better every game this year.

My list goes like this:

Hall- Drives this team and WILL be the captain of this team
Nuge- Way to much skill and vision, not to turn out
Yak- Loves the game future 40 goal guy
Ebs- Ceiling not as high a the others

We should try something like this for the next game:

PRV/Gagner/Eberle
Hall/RNH/Yakupov
I wouldn't mess with the lines right now.

Also, Hall and RNH have never really clicked.

Why would we play Yakupov and risk losing a game in the third period?

Wait...

Yeah I wouldn't mind seeing Hall + Yakupov together more. They basically did all the work on that Gagner goal.

I'd roll with these lines.
PRV/Nuge/Eberle
Hall/Gagner/Yakupov

Nuge and Eberle have good chemistry and I'd love to see Hall and Yakupov terrorize opposing defenders.

I like having Hall and Yakupov together but I would keep Gagner and Paajarvi on the same line. They seem to have some chemistry.

PRV/Gagner/Hemsky
Hall/Horcoff/Yakupov
Harti/RNH/Eberle

2 legit threats on each line. A nightmare for other teams to match

I agree, Yakupov just has those natural tools. His shot is absolutely ridiculous for a teenager and he has very good hands. He hasn't even come close to showing the fans here what he can really do.

Yakupov has all the tools to be the best goal scorer the Oilers have had for a very, very long time.

Tavares is amazing - he takes fading bums (Moulson/Parenteau in the past, Boyes currently) - and makes NHL stars out of them. Boyes has 24 points this season. Parenteau is playing with Duchene (also playing amazing) - and putting up points accordingly. But who were these guys before they played with Tavares/Duchene? AHLers and fading stars.

I swear you could put Cheechoo with Tavares now and he'll pot 20.

Nice first 2 period lines Insert Smyth on all three for 3rd periods.

Id rather not go back to the 2 line fiasco, Although we lost yesterday the 3 line combo has been extremely dominant.

We lost because Smyth and Brown were creatively inserted into those 3 lines.

Yakupov so far isn't a player that you notice, he's sorta just there, he hasn't shown any impressive flashes of taking the puck and the game on his stick like Hall and Ebs did in their rookie years and continue to do now. Yakupov just kinda waits for the puck near the slot firing off a one timer.

I love his enthusiasm though, I just want to see more from him away from the puck and with the puck, he passes way too often, he's gotta learn to be selfish like he was in JR.

He's shown some nice flashes this year but I agree not as noticeable as Hall or Eberle in their rookie year (but Yakupov did statistically have a better start then either player). Part of it is ice time

Hall's rookie year - ES TOI/G: 15:26 PP TOI/G : 2:43 = 18:12 per game 1.78 PP/60m

Eberle's rookie year - ES TOI/G: 14:27 PP TOI/G : 2:32 = 17:40 per game 1.79 PP/60m

Yakupov's rookie year - ES TOI/G: 11:31 PP TOI/G : 2:32 = 14:04 per game 1.58 PP/60m

Like you said he needs to be more selfish. He's definitely the most raw out of all the rookies the Oilers have brought in over the past few years but once he puts it all together this kid is going to be great.

in terms of point production i think RNH will end up with the highest total each year but when the playoffs start it will be all Taylor hall and Yakupov. their compete levels are just that must better than everyone else. their speed doesnt hurt either.

A lot of (non-Oiler fan type) people rag about the Oil drafting the same players and I just shake my head.

Yes, they are all top tier offensive potential. But how they will achieve that potential will come in vastly different ways.

Yak I think is going to be a pure scorer, shoot first sort of guy once he figures out where to set up on the ice. Hall is going to be a crash the net, bang hard scoring machine. Nuge is our playmaking centre who will have all these excellent options to set up. Ebs is going to be an all around guy who just scores and puts up points while everyone on the other teams focus on the others.

Four offensive talents with four different sorts of skillsets.

lol yeah my fav is "we nee dmore size in our top 6 we should look at josh bailey from the isles.................."

lol derp bailey is smaller/same size as nuge and hall. the oiler jersey makes you 3" shorter and 20lbs lighter.

also lets trade hemsky for clowe.........coming from teh same people who hated dustin penner. the only difference between the 2 is penner has scored this year
