You are right, but the IIHF didnt count it. They gave it to Hopkins instead, who had the secondary assist I believe.

Maybe they will change it, but so far they havent.

Speaking to Russian news website R-Sport on Monday, Yakupov reportedly said, "I understand that I will have to keep a cool head and ignore provocations. Especially against the Canadians. These guys play dirty. We got used to that, we played a few games in the North America, so our team is ready.

I'm not going to read too much into it. Playing on edge vs. rough vs. playing unfair vs. cheapshots. It's hard to translate that concisely and accurately.

He's not going to stop being honest and forthcoming just because he was drafted by a Canadian team.

It's a good thing. Hockey needs more players with an opinion that isn't coached into them by anti-controversy PR employees, not less - it's entertainment after all.

Just saw this beauty of a post on the main board about The Nuge:


"He's not that much better than Huberdeau. His 5 points is because he gives to people that finishes.."


Oh for real? That's not what a good playmaker does then? My mistake.

Not sure how man people are watching so I'll do a shift by shift Yak update.


1: came out just flying, a race for the puck in the first 30 seconds he not only won against a dman who was a step ahead, but won with enough room to make a tape to tape pass to a teammate out in front who was totally alone and biffed it. That's a goal in the NHL 99% of the time. Not discourged at his team mates gaff he persued a cycle play by the Slovaks and interseppeted it to give an equally as nice pass which was also blown by a teammate out infont all alone. Yak tracks down the Slovak dman hits him off he puck and the last centre attempt doesn't connect for him. About as good of a first shift as you can have without scoring. Wow. He can fly. we're lucky.

2: Tries to pass it center ice, doesn't connect . Skates around for a while and line changes.

3: doesn't touch the puck, team kind of plays around with it until the play falls dead.

Powerplay1: nothing really created. Lousy shot wide.

Yeah, same here.
It's a bit alarming that he has virtually disappeared in almost every game for the national team against kids that he should be dominating by now or at the very least, be noticeable on every shift. It seems that he struggles in tight checking environments, not a good sign IMO.
I see a lot of excuses made for him by blaming the coaching, linemates etc. but at some point the onus has to fall on Yakupov especially being in a leadership role to step his game up regardless of his linemates. He's playing way below his talent level.

Galchenyuk will prove to be the best player taken in last years draft. Hopefully Yak proves his worth as a first overall pick ... i'm somewhat skeptical about him though.

Absolute nonsense.

Have you seen Galchenyuk play in the pre-tournament games? Completely invisible.

Yakupov set up teammates with multiple scoring chances that they failed to convert and one that they did.

Wow quality post But yeah RNH is barely better than Huberdeau when RNH was clearly the best player on the ice and Huberdeau was probably 4th on his own team behind RNH, Scheifele and Drouin.

Why would the 1st overall pick be getting little playing time?

In this case I hope your right.

I still believe in the long run Galchenyuk will be the best player (remember he didn't play all of last year becasue of an injury). I haven't seen all the US games, but thought part of the one i saw he was moved to the wing for some reason??? Not sure if you can base the future Galchenyuk on how he has performed in the pre-tournament.

At times Yak has looked great and at other times lost; be objective .... he hasn't been RNH. Of Hall, RNH, Eberle > Yak. Only time will tell.

Yak is also a year younger than RNH and hasn't had a year of NHL experience under his belt. let's see how it goes as the tourney rolls further.
