The offensive depth and size distrubution is much greater in this case then simply throwing all our eggs in one basket again.

Galchenyuk Desharnais Cole
Pacioretty Plekanec Leblanc
Bourque Eller Gionta

Or you can switch DD and Gally (though God-forbid you do such a thing on these boards, Desharnais has become a sacred cow)


:laugh:

Its true but DD is still a very good offensive center and i'm pretty sure he could do well at wing in the top6.

Yes and he is by no means an established top 6 center.

I wouldn't say that. It might still be unknown about his consistency, but he definitely is a top 6 centre. I would just like to see the offense and size spread out. I think he can still be as effective on the wing. He won't suddenly lose his vision and poise.

Same name as the last thread? I demand change!

I suggest "Alex Galchenchyuk Thread 5.90 - It's Galleriffic!"

Ginu 11-07-2012 01:31 PM

Keep Galchenyuk with Plekanec. He needs someone experienced who can cover any defensive lapses. Remember it's his first year. Desharnais is a strictly offensive player and is young himself.

11Goat11 11-07-2012 01:38 PM

Thread should have been called "Rustgate", or the "CLR" edition.

Either of these would be hilarious!

DekeLikeYouMeanIt 11-07-2012 01:51 PM

I second Rustgate Edition.

overlords 11-07-2012 01:52 PM

I thought rustgate was over?

11Goat11 11-07-2012 01:54 PM

Hence the CLR edition, gets rid of the rust....

We don't need Gally getting tough match ups.
Put him next to Eller, and give them Gionta as well. They'd make a great 3rd line.
Gally wouldn't have to focus too much on his offensive side, and he'd have two good offensive but very responsible defensive players.
Starting him up on 3rd line would be best. I'd rather give Leblanc a shot on the top 6. He's had the chance before and did decently well.

That would be a great 3rd line, but our top 6 would be weakened. With that 3rd line, this would likely be the top-9:

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
Bourque? - Plekanec - Leblanc
Galchenyuk - Eller - Gionta

If that's the case, Eller's line actually becomes the 2nd line and Plekanec continues to play with muckers. I don't disagree with Gally starting on the third line, but at the same time, the team really needs him to add some oomph to the top-6. That said, if it was possible to upgrade on Bourque in the above scenario, those lines would look a lot better.

I would put Bourque next to DD, on the 2nd line, complement them with either Cole or MaxPac.
Plekanec gets Leblanc and one of MaxPac/Cole. Bourque with Leblanc and Plek would not work imo. Not only that, but Plekanec, our best center, would yet again get stuck with arguably our worst wingers.

How about we leave Galchenyuk in the OHL?

What other league did you have in mind?

You are grossly underrating Forsberg. He was a complete player who was dominant in all three zones. Once again this is an example of revisionist history via stat analysis......really getting old on these boards.

I don't want to derail this thread, but I never once underrated Forsberg. He was a beast without question, but I wasn't the one to claim "if it wasn't for his injuries he could of been the greatest player to ever wear a jersey" or "he had the greatest hands ever". I don't feel like arguing semantics or the definition of "hands", but he wasn't even the greatest player on his team and he definitely didn't have the best hands on his team. He was a Bryan Trottier type player, he could do everything, but neither of those statements were true. He was my favorite player while he was in the league, I loved his grit, skill, playmaking, but greatest to ever wear a jersey is a huge overstatement. Not even close whether he was injury riddled or not.

I agree, but I don't expect Therrien to make changes.

What?!! He definitely did have the best hands on his team and on any team he ever played for in his life. Joey Saks had the snapper, Foppa had everything else.

You're right in saying that he wouldn't have ever been considered the best player ever or as having the best hands ever, that's the title Mario deserves, but he was no doubt one of the best players to ever play in the NHL. Seriouslyyyy underrated.

Anyways kids a beast and I could not understand how anyone thought he would just jump right in and start dominating from day one considering the time he missed.

I am so glad we have him and cannot believe Columbus did not draft him before the Habs. I think he is good enough to play in the NHL now but kind of glad he is getting the ice time he is in the O.

overlords 11-07-2012 05:29 PM

back on topic.

That's galchenyuk, in case you forgot ;)

MaxLacoste 11-07-2012 06:04 PM

Which winger should we try to draft to play along side Gally in 2013? The next draft is full of talent, we could find the perfect player to grow with our latest 1st round pick. I think Anthony Mantha is the perfect candidate to be match with Galchenyuk. Galchenyuk+Mantha+Pacioretty would make a sick line with size.

Drouin! I don't like Mantha's skating although he is a beast.
