    Yakupov who most likely will go number one in the 2012 NHL Draft, agree? Is the number one ranking prospect as of right now, is being called the reminiscent of Alex Mogilny. I totally agree this guy handles and skates just like Alexander the Great, Mogilny was a hell of a player and so will Yakupov.

    I can sort of see the comparison. I think Yakupov has more grit, but not as much speed/flash, but still a decent comparison. Maybe more of a mid way point between Mogilny and Parise (in terms of style, who knows where he'll end up in terms of actual production).

    probably because there are so many Yakupov threads around here that it is getting a bit redundant

    not a big deal to me personally, and without a properly functioning search tool, it is hard to know what threads already exist (unless of course the search has been fixed by now...I haven't checked in a few days or so)

    EDIT: Just checked and the search is still broken, and the timing totally sucks as there are many fantasy drafts going on right now and I usually use this site to get as much info as possible on prospects. Without a functioning search tool, I am finding that more difficult than in past years.

    Completely different players in terms of compete level and motor.

    Skill and speed is the same level

    But Mogilny had injury problems and inconsistencies throughout his career.

    His compete level wasn't at Yakupov's level.

    Yakupov's compete level and willingness to fully exploit his talent is closer to Ovechkin.

    So what you're saying is, he'll eventually be a leaf
