I consider Markov's injuries to be freak injuries. I expect him to come back and to be the player he was in 2006-2009.
However, even if he's not the one to be injured, we'll have one or two major injuries either way, that is the standard. If Markov comes back and we lose Subban, we'll hear the same old song: "the only reason we sucked is that Subban was injured, next year he won't be injured and we'll be better".
Even if Galchenyuk scores 15-20g and 20-25a in his rookie year, it will be a huge boost. His ability to just get the puck across the blue line will pay dividends and will change the makeup of our PP drastically.
I don't think he'll be on the 1st line.
He can't possibly score that from the Plekanec shutdown line.
And there's not enough ice time to score 45 points from the Eller line, otherwise Eller would have already done so.
