Alex Galchenyuk

Potential: 1st line two-way centre/winger capable of 70-80 points.
Realistic Projection: 2nd line two-way centre/winger capable of 55-60 points.

I'd say Galchenyuk most likely ends up somewhere in between those two. He's got some bad habits like trying to do too much, or being reluctant to shoot when he should. He's not the most explosive player, he's a very fast skater, but it takes him a while to reach his top speed. Very rarely do you get to skate in a straight line, so not very often do you get to him skate at full speed. Taking in to account those two things, I think that he'll take a fairly long time before he becomes a consistent offensive threat. Also his defensive game, while very good, is very inconsistent. At centre this year, it's been good, but this year at the wing, he can go from looking like a shutdown forward to a floater who doesn't care about his own zone.
