i think you're the only Oilers fan that hasn't heard that quote. might be part of the reason why he's in almost every trade proposal they make to other teams.
You left out the part where he said, ďIím not going to change but maybe play better without the puck, or forecheck more". You also need to realize that the reporter who got those quotes is known for only picking the juicy/controversial parts for a quote. Which a lot of reporters do, so its not a huge criticism, but it leads to questions about what else he may have said. You also need to realize that he speaks poor English, so it's likely that he was having trouble finding the words, and I don't think he would be the first (or only) NHL player to prefer playing an offensive role.

Really, the only criticism right now, is that he is having a major sophomore slump. The quote is questionable at best, taken out of context most likely, and shoddy reporting to boot.

Just because someone is having a bad early season doesn't mean his value is close to nothing

Simmonds is good but Yak for Simmonds + 2nd round is WAYYYYYYY to little

Funny how Flyer fans are saying they know their players better then other fans . Then out of their mouth comes Yakupov is a lazy Russian . He is not lazy . He may not play a good 2 way game , but he is far from lazy .

He Russian , English is not his strong point . Easy to understand how he can be misquoted . Simple put he is a scorer who wants to score . Hitting and forechecking is not his strongest assets and is not want got him drafted 1st OA . Did he say he would not do it ? He came to Canada as a 16 year old to learn the NHL game . What other russians has you seen with that kind of commitment to the NHL .
