I'm basing this on what I've been hearing from guys out of Dallas that his ability to play has been in serious decline recently.

I really doubt Galiev is ready to do more than fill a spot, I'm not super familiar with him but he looks like a really good but not dominant junior player. I don't think he's any more than what Johansson was at 20.

Now if they got Kuzentzov they'd be cooking again, but he's in Russia for at least another year and might never come.
