So you think going back to the OHL for 25 games will help him 'dominate games on his own' once he reaches the NHL?
Seems kind of an odd conclusion to reach...
the OHL is the OHL...the NHL is the NHL
Dominating in one league, doesn't guarantee domination in the other (see Corey Locke, or a million other players who've dominated the CHL).
Very few NHL players 'dominate a game on their own' on a consistent basis, so if this is the expectation for Galchenyuk, then I think we need a reality check. Again, i'd like someone to explain what the benefit is for Galchenyuk to dominate the OHL?
Once more, he's been dominating that league since he's been 16yrs old...what will 3 more months do?
