My favourite draft eligible prospect in a long time. Him and Dumba are already making me look forward to next year's draft.

I don't know how many GM's have faith drafting a Russian 1st overall, might be very risky for sure.

I'm not saying he's as talented as Ovechkin.

But would you pass up on Ovechkin as the first overall pick today?

People have to keep in mind that Radulov left for the newly started KHL. There was no KHL when he left Russia, no oppurtunity for him to make significantly more than he would on an ELC. Yakupov came over knowing what the situation in the NHL is and what the situation in the KHL is. He knows that he can make more money there and that he will have to sign an ELC here.

Any player that comes over from Russia these days is fully aware of what their options are.

are you talking about money?? if yes then there was pretty good money available back then as well. even many years before that, i recall 1997-Afinogenov were about 17 years old and he played in Dynamo Moscow. so he had a salary 2000 dollars per month.

as the 2012 draft approaches Im sure we will learn more about whether or not Yakupov wants to play in the NHL. My guess is he will, he has the skill to be a number one pick. If he is wishy washy then im sure Ryan Murray and Nick Ebert will make that decision a little harder for whoever picks 1st. The bigger russian question will be whether or not anyone risks a top10 pick on Grigorenko

http://alyonka.tumblr.com/post/10677...lex-galchenyuk
obviously Yakupov is about 2-2.5 inches higher than Larionov(5.9/170). now lets compare Yakupov to Galchenyuk? according to OHL Nail should be more than 2 inches shorter and 7 kg lighter but i am not blind you know so i believe 6.0/190 is correct at least by now.
Yeah that looks like pretty good proof to me, unexpected though. He also looks thicker than Galchenyuk in that pic who is listed at 185. Might just be the dress shoes though for the height. When was this pic taken?

Russians that plays in the OHL wants to play in the NHL. If they wanted to play in the KHL, they simply would of stayed in russia and play in the MHL/KHL juniors

If he had I'm sure he would have played at the U18s regardless of the Americans taking an entire NTDP roster. Hes head and shoulders better than any player on that team right now and hes only 16.

Unless hes said something recently your probably reffering to an article awhile back (Few months) and that still wasn't a confirmation.

Edmonton will fail for Nail next year so they can have three straight first overall picks.

The pain of that would be worth it for a Hall-RNH-Yakupov line.

United States national? I think he said he'll probably play for the USA because Larionov wants him to.

Certainly its the best choice for him if he's considering an NHL career.

Alot of goals + Alot of assists = mindblown.

Probably less points, similar to Hall in his draft year.

Sorry to bump, but how good is Nail? Is he going to go number one or will Galchenyuk, Frk, or one of the many defensemen such as Reinhart bump him down?
