upside IMO 75-82 point winger. some here on the boards have suggested he's the most talented prospect not in the NHL, but question his compete level. If he's available in our points only draft, round 1, i'm going to take him at #9 overall. I 'm pretty high on him and from i've seen of him thus far.
i have never heard anyone question tarasenko's compete level. In fact, I have always heard that it is one of his greatest strengths. Very coachable, desire to improve... the kid was the captain of his WJ team two years ago and he has been an alternate captain the last 2 seasons in the khl... yakupov is on another level, but tarasenko fits right in with all of the other high end prospects ready to lace 'em up in the nhl.
