I like Galchenyuk, but let's not be carried away. At best, we can say the top-3 was very close.
I said virtually, and we can agree that the top-3 were very close. Which is my point. We are talking about a guy that in a given year could have been a first overall draft pick, he is that good.

Also, his overall game versus Yakupov is better, compensates for pure stats.
