Anyone think we maybe should have taken Galchenyuk?

With Yak (and Hall) we got that. with RNH vrs. Landeskog, i think it was a case of two equally valued players, but we wanted and needed the centre.
I don't think there were many that would have valued Landeskog at the same level as Nuge.
I've probably watched Landeskog a lot more than most on this board. He is a tremendous kid with a broad skillset. But I would have been choked beyond belief if the Oilers had picked him.
