Again, I disagree with you. While the type of injury certainly is an important factor, missing those reps at this early stage of a prospect's career does have an impact. Some more than others, but it does. I don't think you can so nonchalantly dismiss that.

It's a testament to Galchenyuk that he hasn't missed a beat, but he had to play catch up no matter how you slice it.
