FIRST PERSON SHOOTER

August 11 2012 07:46AM

The Edmonton Oilers drafted Nail Yakupov at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Did they acquire a dominant shooter?

Since the lockout, Edmonton's best (single season) shots on goal totals have been:

  1. Taylor Hall (11-12) 207
  2. Petr Sykora (06-07) 206
  3. Dustin Penner (09-10) 203
  4. Dustin Penner (07-08) 201

These are good totals, but many miles from the all-time number (Phil Esposito 550 shots in 1970-71) and the best post-lockout number (Alexander Ovechkin 528 shots in 2008-09). The all-time mark for an Oiler (Wayne Gretzky 369 shots  in 1981-82) is 30 years old and unlikely to fall anytime soon.

GET TO THE YAK ALREADY!

We are extremely limited in terms of what shot totals are available for a player Nail Yakupov's age.We do have WJ totals over many years; it is a very small sample size but here's a look at recent Oiler draft picks and their single season performances at the world juniors:

  1. Jordan Eberle (08-09) 26shots/6games 4.33per game (6 goals)
  2. Taylor Hall (09-10) 21shots/6games 3.5per game (6 goals)
  3. Nail Yakupov (11-12) 21shots/7games 3.00per game (0 goals)

Now the ages are little bit all over the place but it is interesting to see the three wingers side by side. Yakupov's 0 goals was a topic of discussion at the time but he was all around the offense and the scouting reports have him as a terrific shooter.

SAW HIM GOOD

I'm a follower of math as it relates to hockey, but numbers should be used to confirm what the eyes see. We should question our belief in specific things when math refuses to confirm what the eyes are seeing.  'Math' and 'saw him good' are a perfect match when it comes to Nail Yakupov, but math trails the video because junior leagues don't track things like shots on goal and time on ice (please, Baby Jesus. In my lifetime would be wonderful).

The other major math item: Yakupov was tracking ahead of Taylor Hall in the OHL last season before his injury, and the year before Yakupov had a stunning rookie season with Sarnia in 10-11.

  • First 26 OHL games in 11-12: 21-32-53 2.04ppg

Stu MacGregor: “He’s extremely fast, he’s creative, he can score goals. One of the things that really impressed– whenever he got in all alone on a goaltender,  he didn’t miss, he put it in. He has the potential — and I want to say potential —  to score 30 goals or even more."

Yakupov's impressive showing at the Oilers development camp right after the entry draft including some impressive moments and loud sounds of clanging iron as the phenom beat the goalie and met the crossbar. His goal in G1 of the Canada-Russia series was breathtaking. Holy hell this kid can shoot the puck.

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

I honestly think we're (as a fanbase) overlooking this guy. It is understandable, he's never played in a game as an Oiler and he's the third #1 overall selection in a row. Maybe we think that after Taylor Hall and the Nuge nothing could possibly make us stand up and take notice.

I think Nail Yakupov is going to knock us on our collective cans come training camp, and a lot of it will have to do with his shot, shots on goal, and time in the scoring zone. This isn't a complementary player destined to play in the shadow of Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, this isn't the third Beatle and this isn't a guy who can be ignored.

Math and 'saw him good' agree. This kid is special.

I've watched that goal a few times now, and it's more amazing each viewing. His play in the 2nd period of that game where he walked right through a Canadian defender in the right corner and took the puck to the net was a thing of beauty as well.

In the second game, Nail and Grigorenko have looked really good together. Yakupov should be able to fit right in with either Hopkins or Gagner.

The thing that impresses me the most about Yak is the puck movement.He doesn't hold onto it as soon as he can find somebody it's off his stick with an accurate pass.He has set up Grigorenko stone cold in front of net at least twice. He will fit in great with oiler young stars.

Yak was not as electric as I expected in the two games, but I think the ice conditions had a lot to do with that. He and Grigerenko had no chemistry in the first games, but definitely looked better in the second. He uses his teammates more than I expected, as he almost passes the puck too quickly. The goal was Brett Hull like. I doubt there are more than 10 guys who could have scored it. I was also happy to see him not get frustrated when things weren't going his way and that he didn't go overboard on his goal celebration. I still think him and RNH will be the best fit, and go with Hall-Gag-Eberle.

I'm still all for Yak, but Murray looked great. I can't believe how much worse Canada's D looked in the game he didn't play. Hamilton looked horrible and based on some stuff I've read, he's not as sure a thing as commonly thought. (I do think some of the negative stuff are Leaf fans still trying to rationalize the Kessel trade though)

ONE WAY YAK ? He's got an abundance of offensive flair but his defensive abilities, or disabilities , are quite questionable . Vast improvement needed on his defensive side from what i've seen , if he is to make an impact and make the team fulltime this season .

This is article is why I cringe when I read people saying that Yak should and will play left wing next season. This kid has been a shooter, with a one timer that is (reports are) better then Stamkos at the same age. He plays right wing so he can use that one timer. Sticking him on the left clips his wings and removes a major weapon. Shift Hemmer. Period.

I think Nail being more Russian, rather than a transplanted Russian living in North America (Galchenyuk) will actually benifit from that his first few yrs here. The kid will probably come in and decide for himself who can play on this team and who can't. There's just enough differences between cultures to allow him to be a free thinker like this.

Wonder how long it will take before he pleads outloud, please don't put that guy wearing No. 10 on my line.

Hammer away Nail, a 40+ goal season during his first year, his words would carry much more weight.

"In the 1950s, the greatest of Russian players was an attacker named Vsevolod Bobrov. Bobrov was a natural athlete and one of the best Russian soccer players. In hockey, he was stronger and more skilled than his teammates. He averaged 2.4 goals per game, partly because his linemates were charged with backchecking and getting the puck to the great star in scoring position.

As much as Tarasov admired Bobrov’s technical skill, the coach wasn’t pleased with this arrangement. It failed to promote the growth of both the star player and his linemates, Tarasov charged. The secondary players took a more narrow view of the game, leaving some of their talent untapped. As for star attacker, Tarasov said. “By designating a leader or star in such a forward line, this did not in the least promote the growth of the star himself, and in fact, quite often resulted in that old disease known as being ‘star struck,’ too much self-assurance and outright disregard for his team mates.”

At the same time, opposing teams could easily thwart such a line by trying to thwart all passes to the star.

After reading this from David Staples' article, regarding Yakapov and his resemblance to retro Soviet players such as Karlemov and players of his ilk I would be interested to see RNH center both Eberle & Yakapov. These 3 seem to have all the attributes described by Tarasov and would give top NHL defenders fits. Then put Gags, Hall, and Hemmer together for the second line.

Actually that is exactly where he should go. On the line with Horcoff and Smyth. Learn the trade from two good NHL veterans. As much as I don't think Horcoff is a creative wizard offensively, he's not horrible either. He'll be able to get Yak the puck.

From what I've seen of Yakupov, he has the explosiveness of Hall, the shiftyness of RNH and the finish or Eberle. That's a mouthful. Not saying that he will be the best of the bunch but he is absolutely in the same class. I also think that his playmaking skills are often overlooked and that his defensive game is not the big weakness that some people assume it is. Respect the Yak.

True that oldtimer. Can we really call a guy getting 20+ mins a night going up against the other teams toughs...a third line center?

Horcoff likes to slow things down. When he's moving that puck up ice it's at his own pace. We can see this numerous times during the season, when the pace picks up around the opposition goal, Shawns timing (whiffer moments) goes out the window. I don't see Yak and Horc/Smyth being a solid trio. 10 and 94 play the game at yesteryears pace.

Geez I hope this season starts on time! Watching this kid at the development camp was fun to watch.

I agree with OB1, except this kid may score 30-35 his first year.

I wonder if Kruger try’s 4 forwards on the PP? Personally I feel Yakupov should stay on his wing and move the more experienced Hemsky over to L wing.

The way I see it is that out of Hall, Ebs, and the Nuge that Yak has the most tools. As some where mentioning he has speed like Hall, shifty-ness like Nuge as well as an incredible passing game, and he can finish like Ebs. Not saying that he will be the best of the bunch, but judging by his "toolset" and the fact that he gets to play with players that can either compliment his shooting game or bury his sick passes. I think that with these factors that Yak could very easily surprise the league and blow everyone's expectations out of the water, even the "pie in the sky" expectations might be blown away.

We have a roster full of bonafide shooters ,it is the system that dictates who is and isnt a shooter,nothing else.Not the player or his abilitys.

If the Oilers play the NewAge Hockey System or a variant this year we will see 45 shots per game over 82 games.

The NewAge System spreads offensive accountability 100% across the board like no other system being played in the NHL today.The offensive shot decisions are ALL system dictated and the shot choices are also SYSTEM dictated,many responsibilitys are removed from the players focus,and his game speed is drasticly improved as is his execution of system requirements.

If a player like Nail,who I have watched a lot of video on,is allowed to contribute to a system like the NewAge System his speed and instincts will if he works hard enough put him in CONSTANT position systemwise to be releaseing his shot,premier shot positions on a consistant basis.With this system and the Oilers talent it will literally be a matter of who works hardest gets the most goals,the opponent will have virtually nothing to say or do about this outcome,the system is THAT offensive and superior to the "hybrid system"being played by most NHL teams.

I recognised the finish but we have at least three guys in that league,with a d-man who looks like a sniper as well in Schultz.

Yakupovs sucess will depend on the system the coach chooses to use him in if he makes the team out of camp as we all seem to expect.

I created the NewAge Hockey System for the Oilers specificly and presented it to them on-line last year,I read Mr.Kruegers comments related to the type of offense we might see being similar to the PP of the 80s Oilers,welcome to my world,my system is absolutely and completely based off of the Oilers PP execution dureing the 80s,i have converted the core values of that PP to a superior 5 on 5 hyper-offensive system unlike any ever seen before.It is unique ,and it is mine.LA used it last year as did our farm team,the Oilers started to implement it with about 25 games to go and had steady sucess.

I posted extensively about my system on the Oilers website over a two year period,in an attempt to have it recognised and implemented,I believe I accomplished that,and along the way LA through Jarret Stoll and co. piggybacked the data from the Oilers site and implemented it,and the farm team also implemented my system data effectively,both LA and the farm team attained the expected results,and the Oilers were righting the ship at the end of the year believe it or not,you could feel it.

Players like Nail work so very hard every time they hit the ice that they need to play in a system that allows this extra effort to be immediatly rewarded and consistantly rewarded,they need a system that rewards extra effort and individual efforts that are aggressive and offensive for 60 complete minutes.A system that drains them of offensive energy,not one that stifles it ,not even for 5 mins of a game.

If Nail is on the second line consistantly he will push for the team goals lead and walk away with the Calder hands down,possibly by a record margin of points if he stays healthy for 82 games,I believe Sam Gagner is a natural fit with Nails vision and insincts,and because Sam looks to be anchoring the 2nd line their unavoidable chemistry will rear its head through many multiple point games for the two of them,if we see this dynamic for 82 games I peg Yakupov within the NewAge System to score 35 plus goals,if he finds a home on the PP maybe 40---and the 2nd line will propel us into the playoffs with those multi-point games.Remember this is a system specific prediction.If we play a hybrid system like we did most of last year,I say he will be a 20ish goal guy no matter what icetime he gets.i appreciate nails skillset and shot ect. but I still firmly believe that offensive sucess is catalysed by system induced opportunitys---so with an average system he will perform above average for a rookie,with a superior system he will perform above average on the NHL level.

Just make sure you remember to not blame Sammy for shooting a lot this year with nail on his line if we use the NewAge System,because the shots will be system dictated not dictated by anyones greed.And there should be 45 per game to go around,and i love the math when I see nails conversion ability,he will get four shots per game average,so it should be interesting.

If we play a hybrid system he will get less shots per game by a large margin,I see Nail useing his onetimer on the PP a lot and getting most of his goals from there which is why i pegged him in the 20s,but in the NewAge System he will be generateing his goals off 5 on 5 situations as well as the PP and he will have a constant stream of system induced shooting opportunitys which is why I pegged him at possibly 40 goals. Yes,he is a finisher,yes he has an invisible release,and yes he can score from absolutely everywhere,and yes he will fit in here and have a lot of great young teachers to help him out,like a third born he will talk-walk-and score goals faster because of his slightly older siblings like Hall-Gagner-Nuge-Ebbs ect.

But lets remember that he is walking into a room full of high picks with a serious skillset depth---this may be the toughest test he has ever had,and certainly tougher than the fellas before him,he has to compete with the full deck of cards with hemsky-Nuge-Hall-Ebbs-Gagner-Schultz-MPS ect.I dont see there being that much pressure or expectations put on him,we dont exactly need a savior these days with all the young studs we have.

As with all our players,as the system goes so goes the players statistical seasons.We can already count on one thing,Nail will be ready to put in the hard work needed to be a system asset,and the system wont matter in that regard,the rest is still unwritten history,and anyone who wants to can pick up the pen and start writeing,they just need the desire---I see a lot of that in this young man.

Sorry for your luck but Waynes single season shot record is in serious trouble if we use the NewAge System this year,we will average 45 shots per game and this means that a player who gets a little extra opportunity can put up over 4 shots per game and this means within the NewAge System Waynes record might fall in year one and will definately be gone with this group by year three.

The NewAge System is based in its entirity on Wayne Gretzkys game vision and tactics.It is the most offensive ,explosive system ever created,it defines the phrase HYPER-OFFENSIVE.60mins of pure unadultered offense.

@NewAgeSys

So your system is responsible for LA being mediocre offensively for most of last season? Or are you saying you're responsible for them winning the cup? You're also saying that you based your system off the Oilers of the 80s' powerplay systems? A team that was actually regarded to be pretty average on the PP?

Look, for all I know you might actually have come up with some great system that revolutionises hockey. But just saying you have and name-dropping a couple of teams without presenting any evidence whatsoever doesn't scream that you have actually done this. You're very vague and don't actually state what this system entails.

Plus your grammar, spelling and sentence structure leave a lot to be desired and don't exactly inspire confidence that a pro sports team would be interested in what you have to say, genius or not.

I think we'd get the most out of Yak if he stayed on the right wing playing with a left handed centreman (RNH) to feed him passes. Out of all the wingers suggested to play in a different position, I think it should be Eberle.

What I am saying is that with about 25 games left in the season the LA kings via Jarret Stoll began instituteing core value components of my newAge Hockey System into their existing hybrid system,they made subtle changes and adjustments that ARE ABSOLUTELY IDENTICAL in form function and CHRONOLOGICAL HISTORY to the adjustments I outlined and provided online via the Oilers website for the Oilers to institute into THEIR own hybrid system,I say Jarret Stoll was the conduit or the source of the changes in LA because he began to ADD ecact adjustments to LAs system as I was posting them in chronological order,this means he had to wait for me to add my data as i provided it leaving a CLEAR and ABSOLUTE trail.

I believe that without makeing the newAge System adjustments that LA wouldnt have made it past the first round,and I can back this up by showing you three or four simple adjustments and tactics that were taken directly from the Oilers website and immediatly implemented into LAs existing hybrid system,as a fan you may not have seen any major changes to LAs system but so what?This was because they didnt need to REMOVE OR CHANGE anything to initiate the adjustments i provided data for,they were able to keep their current hybrid system completely intact and just ADD a few critical adjustments to that existing hybrid system they were already familiar with.To be specific the areas of zone transitions and the bringing in of the upspeed man to the play as well as the neutral zone delay and reversals Stolly was initiating.This possesion /transition game was NOT LAs bread and butter,and they were an average team before they made those critical adjustments.

There is more includeing how they managed to eliminate some great goaltenders from the series they were in,there is a NewAgeSystem of tactical shot allocation --line by line that LA began useing straight from my NewAge system book.

I dont know how old you were or where you were in the 80s but I can assure you that the Oilers PP forced huge changes in the NHL game and how it was directed by the NHL.The Oilers blew teams out useing basicly just the PP,they were the deadliest team on ice on the PP,so overwhelming that rule changes were enacted to prevent them from blowing teams out in an embarrasing fashion and embarrasing the entire league.

You had to have known that,it is hockey history.maybe you should focus less on spelling as you are very good at it and start watching some old Youtube videos so you can catch up to the rest of us.

My system is entirely based off of the dynamic control Wayne Gretzky initiated and directed while on the PP dureing the 80s and throughout his career.I created a System of 5 on 5 play that embraces all of the core values Wayne embraced to run that style of PP.It is a pure offensive system.

The system entails a possesion/transition style of game focused on pure offense for 60mins.

I dont drop names I state facts,you go disprove me or accept them as they are.Just as I say the GDT threads on the Oilers site contain realtime proof of the utilisation sucessfully of my NewAge System adjustments and tactics.

You got the time to go over all 82 LA gametapes and count the number of times their systems initiated or executed a few specific critical plays??Go for it,because you will validate me,look at their games with 25 to go till their last playoff game and YOU tell me what things you recognise as haveing changed since the beginning of their year.

I you have any specific technical questions i am happy to answer them as long as they are system related,either the dreaded hybrid or the Nwage System.Ican give you detailed specifics on exact adjustments by the Kings before and dureing the playoffs,the neutral zone adjustments pointedly the initiation of the use of the upspeed man and the neutral zone reversal come to mind.The consistant application of THREE TRANSITIONS is the most telling adjustment because this is indicitive of a complete change from a hybrid system alone to an adjusted hybrid that focuses on possesion/transition control of the game and the clock.

In fact it is easy to illustrate the adjustments LA made,same with our farm team and the Oilers themselves,and in exactly the same areas,possesion/transition,shot management and use of the upspeed man entering the zone to create a numbers advantage.

It isnt specific tactic selection that is proof my system was utilised--these are all hockey plays the situational dynamics and the timeing are the proof.As well as the completely new adjustments from the NewAge System like the utilisation of tactical shot selection line by line in a specific and original newAge System manner.

Sorry about the spelling ,glad you are bright enough to catch my mistakes,this is why i avoid spell-check,who needs it when we are all so smart?

Find me a reporter who is willing to dig up news videos of Oilers coaches repeating my data verbatim,word for word straight off the website.Find someone who will pull all the Game Day Threads from the Oilers site and read them as they replay the Oilers tape in syncronised time to document the transfer of my data from the web postings to the Oilers bench.Seriously,if you are interested go ahead and take action,pull the last few games of the year when we played LA and you can see BOTH TEAMS TRYING TO INITIATE THE NewAge system at the SAME TIME,it is a blast to watch because the coaches are adjusting so fast to each other in light speed because they are thinking the same and both haveing to adjust their hybrids exactly the same way,ha ha ha.

Just for you because I am feeling sporty,go back to the game at the end of the year when Tuebert fought,it was a game that was surpriseingly competative seeing as both teams were out of the playoffs,read the GDT on the Oilers site and see what i had to say,then watch the tape,and ,make sure you syncronise the tape as you read the posts so you are on the right timeline here ok??And the poster was Momma2.Then after this you better be on the NewAge System bandwagon,and if you need more be specific and i will give you more.

What I am saying is that with about 25 games left in the season the LA kings via Jarret Stoll began instituteing core value components of my newAge Hockey System into their existing hybrid system,they made subtle changes and adjustments that ARE ABSOLUTELY IDENTICAL in form function and CHRONOLOGICAL HISTORY to the adjustments I outlined and provided online via the Oilers website for the Oilers to institute into THEIR own hybrid system,I say Jarret Stoll was the conduit or the source of the changes in LA because he began to ADD ecact adjustments to LAs system as I was posting them in chronological order,this means he had to wait for me to add my data as i provided it leaving a CLEAR and ABSOLUTE trail.

I believe that without makeing the newAge System adjustments that LA wouldnt have made it past the first round,and I can back this up by showing you three or four simple adjustments and tactics that were taken directly from the Oilers website and immediatly implemented into LAs existing hybrid system,as a fan you may not have seen any major changes to LAs system but so what?This was because they didnt need to REMOVE OR CHANGE anything to initiate the adjustments i provided data for,they were able to keep their current hybrid system completely intact and just ADD a few critical adjustments to that existing hybrid system they were already familiar with.To be specific the areas of zone transitions and the bringing in of the upspeed man to the play as well as the neutral zone delay and reversals Stolly was initiating.This possesion /transition game was NOT LAs bread and butter,and they were an average team before they made those critical adjustments.

There is more includeing how they managed to eliminate some great goaltenders from the series they were in,there is a NewAgeSystem of tactical shot allocation --line by line that LA began useing straight from my NewAge system book.

I dont know how old you were or where you were in the 80s but I can assure you that the Oilers PP forced huge changes in the NHL game and how it was directed by the NHL.The Oilers blew teams out useing basicly just the PP,they were the deadliest team on ice on the PP,so overwhelming that rule changes were enacted to prevent them from blowing teams out in an embarrasing fashion and embarrasing the entire league.

You had to have known that,it is hockey history.maybe you should focus less on spelling as you are very good at it and start watching some old Youtube videos so you can catch up to the rest of us.

My system is entirely based off of the dynamic control Wayne Gretzky initiated and directed while on the PP dureing the 80s and throughout his career.I created a System of 5 on 5 play that embraces all of the core values Wayne embraced to run that style of PP.It is a pure offensive system.

The system entails a possesion/transition style of game focused on pure offense for 60mins.

I dont drop names I state facts,you go disprove me or accept them as they are.Just as I say the GDT threads on the Oilers site contain realtime proof of the utilisation sucessfully of my NewAge System adjustments and tactics.

You got the time to go over all 82 LA gametapes and count the number of times their systems initiated or executed a few specific critical plays??Go for it,because you will validate me,look at their games with 25 to go till their last playoff game and YOU tell me what things you recognise as haveing changed since the beginning of their year.

I you have any specific technical questions i am happy to answer them as long as they are system related,either the dreaded hybrid or the Nwage System.Ican give you detailed specifics on exact adjustments by the Kings before and dureing the playoffs,the neutral zone adjustments pointedly the initiation of the use of the upspeed man and the neutral zone reversal come to mind.The consistant application of THREE TRANSITIONS is the most telling adjustment because this is indicitive of a complete change from a hybrid system alone to an adjusted hybrid that focuses on possesion/transition control of the game and the clock.

In fact it is easy to illustrate the adjustments LA made,same with our farm team and the Oilers themselves,and in exactly the same areas,possesion/transition,shot management and use of the upspeed man entering the zone to create a numbers advantage.

It isnt specific tactic selection that is proof my system was utilised--these are all hockey plays the situational dynamics and the timeing are the proof.As well as the completely new adjustments from the NewAge System like the utilisation of tactical shot selection line by line in a specific and original newAge System manner.

Sorry about the spelling ,glad you are bright enough to catch my mistakes,this is why i avoid spell-check,who needs it when we are all so smart?

Find me a reporter who is willing to dig up news videos of Oilers coaches repeating my data verbatim,word for word straight off the website.Find someone who will pull all the Game Day Threads from the Oilers site and read them as they replay the Oilers tape in syncronised time to document the transfer of my data from the web postings to the Oilers bench.Seriously,if you are interested go ahead and take action,pull the last few games of the year when we played LA and you can see BOTH TEAMS TRYING TO INITIATE THE NewAge system at the SAME TIME,it is a blast to watch because the coaches are adjusting so fast to each other in light speed because they are thinking the same and both haveing to adjust their hybrids exactly the same way,ha ha ha.

Just for you because I am feeling sporty,go back to the game at the end of the year when Tuebert fought,it was a game that was surpriseingly competative seeing as both teams were out of the playoffs,read the GDT on the Oilers site and see what i had to say,then watch the tape,and ,make sure you syncronise the tape as you read the posts so you are on the right timeline here ok??And the poster was Momma2.Then after this you better be on the NewAge System bandwagon,and if you need more be specific and i will give you more.

I will never support a system that ignores defensive responsibility. Reminds me of the recent Phoenix Suns teams. How'd 100% offence work for them?
