The first cautionary tale that comes to my mind is Ben Maxwell. A promising player with good raw skills, who missed a ton of games due to injury and hit a plateau. I know Galchenyuk was a more phenomenal talent than Maxwell, but I think the lesson is the same. The fact that he missed all this time at 17 years old is scarier - the younger the player, the more important games and practices become for consistent development.
