hyperbole warning! obviously he is very unlikely to keep this pace up, small sample size, blah blah blah

ok, i can't help myself, i'm kinda freaking out over what yakupov is doing right now... its *crazy*, there isn't much else to say to be honest... if he plays the rest of the season at his current pace, he will score 32 goals!! lol.... just to put a 32 goal pace into perspective, the KHL league record is 35 goals and the league leader had 27 last year... 32 would be one of the best seasons in KHL history (short as it may be)... ovechkin had 13 goals in 37 games at the same age (0.35 g/game) and malkin had 12 goals in 52 games at the same age (0.23 g/game)... yakupovs 0.73 goal/game pace is *ridiculous* for a player his age.... RIDICULOUS

I love his celebrations. I hope that Krueger doesn't try to deter him from doing that. It's very entertaining.

Thanks for the highlights s7ark!
Tikhonov's playing with both Kovalchuk and Tarasenko, but has 5+6 in 14 games, while Tarasenko has 8+7 in 10 with less TOI... I mean, it's not just Kovy...

Tarasenko is going to be good,but not as good a yaks. He will be a 50-60 point C with very reliable Defence. Yaks could score 50 goals a few times.

i'm not saying tarasenko won't be good, all the indications are that he should be pretty good in the NHL.... but at the same age as yakupov is not, tarasenko scored 9g, 10a, 19p, 42gp... a PPG of 0.45, which is very good actually for an 18/19 year old in the KHL, but it's nowhere near yaks production so far... its not even close

Well, I could say that Tarasenko scored 13+11 in 42 a year before that. But it doesn't matter. Nobody can say how this statistics will project on NHL.

Yak has such and accurate shot on him, he seems to pick the spots that he wants, EDM does not have a player like that on the team, I am not trading this guy for nothing. If we can get lucky and draft a 2C with size then our top 6 is set for the next 12 yrs.

now you've done it...

Tarasenko is a stud, would have been my bet for the Calder this year.

no of course not, but you compare players of the same age and in the same league easily enough... especially if the seasons are only a couple years apart... if player A has much superior stats, you can make a fairly informed guess that player A will then have more success in the NHL... you can't say this will be 100% true, but obviously it's a much better bet

projections are just informed bets, nothing more... and the money would be on yakupov being the superior NHLer

Agreed, hyperbole but damn is it nice to see that kind of potential in a kid.

Watching those replays he could have had more points too. A nice play that wasn't finished could have got him an assist and almost got another goal from the slot (I think it was Yak). You can see his talent, he is always buzzing.

And yeah, I don't think anybody in this thread is trying to discount Tarasenko's talent...he's going to be a stud. But Yak is impressing me more even without the age difference. Watching him and Schultz play is just getting me excited to see everyone get together!

The other thing to consider is he's doing it during the lockout with improved competition in the KHL right now.

It's really hard to not love this kid or be excited about his future.

Him almost being at Ovy and Malkins goal totals at the same age in only 10 gp is insane no matter how you look at it. But that's true as well, he's getting to play against a few top NHL guys now too and that can only help. So excited to see him play with everyone else and I will try to temper my expectations knowing that he will have a learning period.

Of course it's good to temper the expectations a bit, but the way he's scoring goals, in my mind there's nothing saying he couldn't get those same goals in the NHL. His speed, his release and his skill should translate well.

Look at his second goal from the most recent game, the fake slapper, then the using his speed and finish with a great far post shot, that would be NHLers too.

Yeah there are many things he does that are just absolutely impressive. I have to say that I did let other people (fans of other teams) get into my head about how weak this draft was (including the 1st overall) but I just don't see it in Yak, he is every bit as exciting as out last 2 picks for me. Love the fact that you can see his love for the game and he wears it on his sleeve.

As for tempering expectations, that's just a coping mechanism for me... just in case I'm pumped to watch this kid play in the show but I really do expect him to produce.

Hehe, I would make a contrary bet on Tarasenko. But way too long to wait.

Wow, that second goal was a beauty.

Looking forward to Yak playing in the Super series in Nov. I'm sure all the games will be on TV with no NHL.

Yes, yes and Grandlund and Huberdeau and Reilly and Baertschi are all better, too.

Breaking Stamkos' records, going wire-to-wire as the best player in his draft year, and then putting up a goal-a-game in the KHL are all things any prospect can do. We're aware we have again managed to draft just an ordinary player first overall according to HFBoards.
