I would have been willing to take that bet (if anything could be proven), I do think there would be at least one team that would have taken Galchenyuk if he played the full season...

If Galchenyuk wasn't hurt, I think it would have been a Hall/Seguin top 2 scenerio where either could have gone 1st, but with Hall/Yak both being favoured as firsts (much like Jones over Mackinnon at this moment).

It's a very slight edge I give to Galchenyuk, it could easily go either way imho. At this point in time, nobody is the clear cut #1...even Grigorenko has a chance to be as good as anybody from this draft.
