Yeah I don't know but I personally am not putting a lot of hope into Galiev becoming a regular for the Caps in the future. I love his story and he definitely has decent hands but I was not very impressed by his play in the Memorial Cup at all. For a guy who's hands are supposed to be his strongest feature he fumbled the puck and took a lot longer to control pucks than he should have a lot. He's got talent, a decent frame to grow into, and a great story so I hope I am wrong though.
