Galchenyuk will be good, really good.. but a lot of you are overrating him a bit, no?

He has average size (big for the Habs I guess ), decent speed, good stick handling and hockey IQ. I don't think he is using his shot well at all so far. Out of his 3 goals, one was a tip in, one was a tap in at the crease and one bounced in after some nice moves to get it to the net.
Malkin was also 2 years older.

I think Galchenyuk look stressed out there to not make any mistake so he rush his decision making a bit.

I think he has elite on ice vision and offensive abilities but he needs to work on his strenght and puck possesion to buy him a second or two with the puck and becoming more efficient with his playmaking style.
