I find it funny how nobody can pin point what it is that Galchenyuk is specifically doing wrong. They just generalize and say that he needs to be better or he needs to go get the puck and take control. If you understand how the game is played when you are watching him, he simply hasn't had the opportunity to do anything because he is not being given the puck. The play hs been on the far side of the ice more often than not and his linemates aren't able to move the puck across to him. This ridiculous idea that he needs to take control of the game would only hold water if he was playing center where he can go get the puck regardless of which wing it is on. As it is he has to stay on his side of the ice and wait for the puck...........
hard to look great when you don't have the puck
This is 100% what I think. Like I said in a post just above yours, he hasn't got solide pass from anyone....let alone from that center on his line.
PLAY HIM AT CENTER HOUSLEY!!!!
