While the battles in the corner may be rough at times, you won't have players try to destroy each other. You may also have a few fights come between enforcers, but that's only because that's their role and have to display their skills.
But exhibition games are a different thing. They're much closer to the difficulty of regular season games than any scrimmage or practice. But the fact remains, going through biosteel camps, off ice training, on ice training, rookie camp is not sufficient to dust off all the rust. It's just not.
As for Gally being portrayed as a God, I didn't see it. I have followed all the thread, so can't say, but I haven't seen him portrayed as so.
I don't think Gally is God, he's a very good offensive prospect, with a potential that is still isn't all clear yet. I don't think anybody is going to call me a hater.
First, I was talking about CHL training camps, the same ones Gally did. I know for a fact ( I played few games, really few, in the Q) that training camps have higher intensity and physical play than the first 4-5 games of the regular season. It's another story in the NHL as we can all see.
I was not talking about THIS particular thread but more about the last one. I said I did not think he was as strong as described by many about his defensive game and that I saw an offensive-first minded player which I was really happy to see. Then was the hate on me.
