Do we have any indication that Bergevin decided that Galchenyuk was making the team, did he overule Therrien, like Gainey was rumored to have done with Price.
The only 2013 drafted players still on an NHL roster at this point in time are Galchenyuk and Yakupov. Bergevin had a huge say in Galchenyuk being part of the team. Just read interviews, article, and watch 24CH to have your proof. It's painfully obvious. Galchenyuk was picked by Timmins, but then it's Bergevin and Therrien who decided that this guy was going to be NHL-bound this year. The first 18 years old player to play for the Habs since Petr Svoboda. Do you actually think it would have been the same with Gauthier? No. He probably would have given 5M to Jiri Hudler to fill the void.
