Its a strange debate you guys are having... Defense and offense are important, probably equally (which I think is somewhat DAChampion's point). What counts is getting puck possesion, keeping it and using it to score goals without getting scored on.

Relating to Galchenyuk - elite offensive forwards are more rare than elite defensive forwards so we need him to focus on offense as long as he's not a liability defensively. He needs to develop in the aspect that will allow him to be the most impactful for the team's success and that is by scoring goals and helping others score too.

Just like the best defense is keeping the puck in the opponents zone... Its also easier to defend a 3 goal lead than a 1 goal lead.
