Galiev has looked much sharper since returning to Hershey from Reading, but he's not nearly as ready for NHL action as Orlov was last season.

Plus, once the team had Green, Wideman, and Carlson all healthy at the same time, Orlov saw his minutes decrease and eventually found himself in the press box.
The only reason he saw his minutes cut was Hunter. Orlov was better than Schultz and Wideman in the playoffs (as well as Erskine who got at least 1 game) but yet was sat anyway.
