He just scored a nice goal vs Sudbury charging out of the corner with the puck and ducking it far side around the goalies pad for # 40 on the season. The kid plays with alot of grit and is fearless going to the net and the dirty areas to pot goals. Could be another first overall pick coming out of Sarnia in 2012. And just as im about to post this he puts in second on the game outwaiting the tender and going top chedda.

Sorry man, but I honestly don't think the Leafs will be that bad.

Sens will be the ones failing for a Nailing.

I'm with you though, Nah-eel sounds right to me.
Yes, lets argue with the guy who actually know how Tatar names are being pronounced.

I'll quote the original post for those who wants to know how it's pronounced.

his name isn't Nail like Neil, it's Nhai'l (Naai'l soft "L" like in French and long "A" like British prounounce back-have or american sun-bus)

also he's a muslim which is cool imho - not much muslims playing pro hockey-) the most famous outside of NA Danis Zaripov of Ak Bars and Russian NT i guess

I hope Yakubov becomes a star but there is always the "CHL curse" lurking... Dimitri Nabokov once looked great in the CHL too.

Not really fair to compare Yakupov to Dmitri Nabokov. Nabokov spend one year in WHL at age 20, Yakupov dominating as an 17 year old. 3 years of development is quiet a lot at that age.

A rough adjustment using Stamkos' projection from Fresh-Soph (really bad comparison, similar players on similar teams) just to see how he could fare next season.
Stamkos
2006-2007 42+50=92 N 63
2007-2008 58+47=105 N 61
2007-2008* 60+49=109 N 63
G: 147% of previous season
A: 98% of previous season

Yakupov
2010-2011 42+44=86 N 54
2010-2011* 49+51=100 N 63
2011-2012 70+50=120 N 63 (Using Stamkos Multiplier)

I was thinking of averaging the past OHL'ers drafted in the top 10 in the past 5 drafts multipliers, but I realized there were too many variables like what lines they played on, playing time, etc.

So if anybody can give me a few guys like Stamkos who were always top line guys (not named OHL Prodigy Tavares), just let me know and I could try to refine this... A little.

But this is like refining a pile of dirt into a more organized pile of dirt.. Means nothing.

Just fun to do stats work and kinda fun to see what he could end up as

Reminds me so much of Patrick Kane the year he played for the London Knights, he plays the same way Kane did all the way down to the energetic celebrations.

4 point night for Yakupov and he tied Stamkos in most goal by a rookie for sarnia sting. He now has 42+44 =86 points in 54 games

I say more like a smaller Brian Boyle who skates like a faster Hal Gill and shoots like a forward version of Tim Thomas.
