I think at least that bald head monk is stronger than old man Yam, there is a small hint that he doesn't even have a zan at all. Anyway, I can see Yamamoto is stronger than 3 of the 5 RG or maybe 4 out of 5 but the old man only improved his bankai and I'm not sure he could reach into the power regions similar to FGT.
I mean, it would be so freaking amazing to see the strongest Shinigami (If it's indeed Ichibei) fight without a Zanpaktou, and being renowed as the strongest, without using a Zanpaktou... I mean, that would be bad ass, far more so than Zaraki, despite Zaraki's awesome character personality.
Either way, if he does not rely on a Zanpaktou, but utilizes all other skills, in particular kido, then I don't see why he would not be cable of being stronger than Yama-Jii, it's entirely possible imo, so I agree with you.
In a nutshell, I'm in the boat that Ichibei might perhaps be the only Royal Guard stronger than Yama-Jii, and that's without using a Zanpaktou (perhaps).
Kido is downright scary shit, to be honest, if he's a kido master, I'd be extremely excited to see him fight! Tessai has disappointed me ever since he amazed me in the TBTP mini arc, what's the deal with Kido when it's so powerful, so useful, and so nasty, and yet so few uses it? Those who are proficient in it doesn't even get screen time... well, so far... <_<
Either way, if Ichibei started to play around with space-time like Tessai did for example, then that's just ONE nasty Kido variation type that could put Yama-Jii in deep shit, imagine what Ichibei could pull off with that alone?
Well just my opinion, but perhaps Kido has been kept away from us all this time to show us the real badass kido fights toward the end of the manga, who knows.

Here is another crackpot, Shutara had taken Shunshui under her wing before she joined the 0 division. Shunshui might have been Yamamoto's student but I believe he didn't join the 1st squad after he graduated. This explains about Shunshui's shikai and his perv when he was her vice cap, and the way he acted about fashion during the SS arc explains a lot but of course we really need some real confirmations in the future chapters in order to state this as a fact.
Wasn't Yamamoto capible of destroying Soul Society on his own?
