I think RNH, in his prime, will be a 30 goal, 55 assist player. Maybe once or twice eclipsing 90 points.
Galchenyuk on the other hand, may be a 30 goal, 45 assist player. Maybe a few times getting over 80 points.
On pure offensive stats, RNH has the potential to be one of the top in the league at one point. In the same class as Sidney Crosby, JT, Steven Stamkos... Galchenyuk will be in with the Kopitar, Toews and Kane's of the NHL.
I do think all-around game, Galchenyuk wins. He doesnt have the hockey IQ RNH has but he has sick passes, hard wrist shots and makes his teammates better. He is also already bigger than Nugent-Hopkins. Gally also plays penalty kill and the point on the PP. He is a more versatile and complete player.
So Gally wins in all around play, although he is also sick offensively.
So IMO, Galchenyuk will be a
better player than RNH but I will say its a draw since Gally has to prove himself.
