I think the feeling from many of the ''send him back'' group would be far different if Galchenyuk had played at least half of last season.
Are we still on that? Kid is healthy and in top shape, if he is able to perform at the NHL level then what does it matter how he got to where he is? I wouldn't care if he was a walk-on hfboarder, if you're that good, you're that good.

If you're worried about that inevitable wall young players hit early in their careers, well the best way to prepare for that wall is to hit it. If he's up for it, I'd want him to be a battle-hardened vet by 20-21.
