If he continues to progress, we could see a real elite player coming to the NHL. He's got a very Malkin-esque swagger about him. He's definitely progressed a good bit more than Yakupov since being drafted. I've been very impressed.
It's not about him progressing...Galchenyuk is simply playing. He's always had a great shot and tremendous puckhandling.
