Goldobin is a very good player, easily their second best forward and a top prospect. Sarault is a talented overage scoring forward, he's going to put up points. Boucher is a great compliment to a skilled line in that league.

You shouldn't simply read the stat line in an attempt to rate a players quality or importance. Watching the games will show you that Galchenyuk is miles ahead of all of those players and the gap is widening by the day.

With all due respect, that's a ridiculous and extremely premature statement.

Unless you're on HFBoards apparently. Where ELCs are more important than the game itself!

Gally would be lucky to get 9 minutes in the NHL.
No he wouldn't. He will have every opportunity to play, and in either case, he won't be expected to dominate every game like some people here were expecting out of the WJCs. Hence, the perception of him playing poorly, because he isn't constantly on the highlight reels, won't be running rampant. That was his point I assume, with him saying "don't put too much emphasis on the WJC".

And let's not forget that whomever he plays with in Montreal, will still be 1000x better than Kuraly.
