Kovalev was really, really good at some point. I like Gally's potential and think he'll get many very productive seasons and that he will be much more consistant but I don't really think he'll have a 40+ goal or 90+ point season like Kovy did. Of course, I'll be extremely please if he proves me wrong
I don't know about future point totals for Galchenyuk...points are often circumstancial.

I was just referring to Galchenyuk's shot release...he's got a very, very heavy and accurate wrister and he doesn't need alot of time or space to get it off. As opposed to Kovalev, who at least in his later year...needed alot of time and space to use his shot, that's not a knock on Kovalev...
