Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger
IIHF says Yakupov does not have approved transfer card to play in KHL. Russian Hockey fined. Appeal can be heard.

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger
Russian Feds have 7 days to respond to Hockey Canada's appeal process.

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger
Tough spot for the Oilers who want Yakupov to play during NHL lockout.

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger
NHL says it doesn't have a stake in the Yakupov controversy, however, NHLPA says its looking into it.

Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger
Oilers want what is best for Yakupov. If he can't play in KHL, they want him playing in Sarnia. Bottom line, they want him playing.

So the IIHF suspended him playing in the KHL? I seem to recall the same thing happening to Radulov when he abandoned Nashville. In the end it didn't make any difference.

However, Nail preferring the KHL over Sarnia, where he was under contract to play this season, is the main indicator of why the Oilers might have wanted to draft Murray instead.

Frack, Yakkity-Yak might never come back...

Yakupov's decision to play in the KHL should not affect others' perception of him. After all, had the NHLPA not been locked out, he would not have played in the OHL. He must have felt, without understanding completely, that he had the option to play in another league in the instance there would be no NHL season. In addition, players from overseas and older members of the NHLPA could play wherever they desired. Perhaps he did not understand he was bound to the CHL, regardless of a lockout, until the age of 20. His NHL club had approved Nail's temporary depature to the KHL at Igor Larionov's request, so the 18-year-old must have assumed the legal aspects had been taken care of.

It seems, even with the NHLPA locked out, Yakupov has no choice but to report to the Sting. This is detrimental to both the Oilers and Yakupov, as he has already learned everything he can at the junior level. It only made sense for everyone (except Hockey Canada and the CHL) that Nail develop for a year in a more difficult league as a method of transitioning into the NHL.

I would, without hesitation, expect Nail to be playing for the Oilers when the NHL resumes play. It's likely a very unfortunate misunderstanding. His closest friend, Alex Galchenyuk, has already resumed playing for the Sting. If Nail had to live with the Galchenyuks for another year, I'm sure they would not mind. Nail was unable to play on Galchenyuk's line for much of the year due to the latter's injuries; to have one final chance to play with his best friend would not be something to dread.

It's not really a suspension, he just hasn't been approved to play there since Sarnia holds his rights. It's a good possibility it gets approved since the Oilers don't object and there's a lockout (after all, it's what we did with Jensen) but it's just a question of getting the transfer card signed off before he can play another game.

They don't want any risk of injury where insurance would become a problem since he isn't approved yet to play outside of the OHL.

CHL players can be loaned to other leagues. Kirill Kabanov was loaned to the Swedish Elite League's Färjestad BK by the QMJHL's Blainville-Boisbriand Armada early in the 2011-12 season. He would have played in the SEL, except he was traded to the Shawinigan Cataractes a day later, and the latter team asked him to stay in North America.

The Sting need only to loan Yakupov to the KHL's Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk, and then the legal arrangements can be made. Yakupov's party must not have asked beforehand, which caused this incident to occur.

Plus, in the one game Nail has played in the KHL already, he was very noticeable.

Check out his successful attempt to walk through the opposng team's defense at 1:08 of the video (with a replay at 1:43), a good wraparound attempt at 1:51, and then a tremendous scoring opportunity at 4:41:

*For those unaware, the 19-year-old Nicklas Jensen, formerly of the Oshawa Generals, is playing in the SEL right now.

Jensen had plans early on to go to the SEL, so his transfer card was already approved. Yakupov decided to go over only after the lockout, so his approval was pending. Not saying it wouldn't have been granted, just that he didn't wait to play until it was approved.

Oilers fans have dubbed him "N64" based on his decision to wear #64 with their team.

But I suppose there will always be those who refer to him merely as "Yak."

Hockey Canada has stated it will approve Yakupov's transfer card if the Sting agree to release him. It's up to Sarnia how this will unfold.

I just can't get over the reaction I get every time I watch him play, I think right away, Pavel Bure 2.0. I never thought in my life I would ever see a player play again like Bure, but now I have hope because I can see the resemblance in the two.
