6 games into the 1998 season, some Rangers fans were thinking Malhotra might end up the best player from the '98 draft. All because he made a decent splash in the first few weeks of the season after making the Rangers squad as an 18 year old.

Meanwhile, guys like Tanguay, Gagne and many others didn't crack the NHL as 18 year olds, but went on to have much more productive careers.

Not saying Galchenyuk doesn't have the potential to be the best player in this draft, but there certainly isn't any indication he is just based on the last few weeks. Plus, it's the development most of these guys will go through in the next 3-4 years that will dictate their career development.
