Galchenyuk will be Galchenyuk. He won't play the stay style as anyone else in the league. It's kind of like saying Stamkos is not Ovechkin and Kopitar is not E. Stall. Pts per game also don't matter, he can be a pt per game player, slightly lower or slightly higher, it will all depend on who his linemates will be.
I think how Galchenyuk will really be evaluated later in his career, in the Montreal hockey market, is his consistency, and his ability to turn it up when it counts. We can't afford to have a #1 C be a streaky player and fans/media will **it on him if that is what he becomes. Personally, I think Galchenyuk will have no issues with consistency but it will really depend on his linemates. He has also shown time and time again in the O that he can win hockey games by himself. This factor alone is what makes his ceiling very high! It's hard not to get too overexcited for what is to come.
