And clearly more against Slovakia. More visible is NOT about having 10 points a game, or shining on every one of his shift.
And him as well. It's easy to see what he did right in that game himself compared to the other ones.
It is because his teammates were able to get him the puck that he was able to shine in that game. Kuraly and Barber have looked overmatched in the subsequent games whereas Galchenyuk has been very dangerous when he has had possession. Kuraly in particular has been a turnover machine.
If he was playing with RNH we wouldn't be having this conversation. We would be discussing whether he clearly should have went #1 overall.
