They won't do something to screw up Galchenyuk's development. But at this point how can any of us be sure that whats best for him is to stay in the OHL (a league he is dominating) rather than play on the 2nd or 3rd line in Montreal?

I say we give him his 9 games and re-evaluate at that point. If he doesn't look out of place and is among our top 9 forwards then i'm all for keeping him in Montreal.
Even if he plays well enough to warrant consideration, do you really want to use one of Gally's ELC years on a half season at 18 years old? Wouldn't you rather use the cheap years on full seasons at 19-21 or 20-22? (assuming the new CBA has a somewhat similar ELC-RFA-UFA structure to the previous one)
