Loving the Prust-Galchenyuk-Gallagher line. I'm pretty impressed at how well Prust is playing, he's a lot more skilled than I thought he was.
Watching him in Sarnia, I was very sceptical that Galchenyuk was NHL ready. He's done nothing but prove me wrong. He looks calm and in control. He's improving every shift and is very engaged with and without the puck. He's progressively becoming more comfortable along the boards, in the corners, and in front of the net. His play in his own zone is very good, considering he's a rookie and in Sarnia is job was to play up high and along the boards. He's coming back to the front of the net and moving his feet. His job as the centre is to be the first man back and play the entire length of the ice and he's done that. Clearly he still has work to do in his own zone, but the improvement that he's shown in that area since the beginning of the season is fantastic.
I'm very impressed with the way Galchenyuk has played, I think he's here to stay.
