Galchenyuk will be a great player one day but he still has a lot to learn. Defensively, he can be unreliable and he sometimes is scared of being hit. Offensively, he shows a lot of promise but still needs to win more puck battles.
Was Galchenyuk our best skater? No. Subban was.
Was Galchenyuk was our best forward? Yes. Might not be by a huge margin, but he was. Bourque and Plekanec were decent too, but Galchenyuk as a whole was just as good. He generated and insane amount of scoring chances/minutes played ratio. He was giving fits to the Ottawa d-men, and was always generating things. He even started hitting more.

Gallagher? Nothing against the kid, he made a lot of efforts and it paid off a couple of times, but in the end, he's -6 and has not generated as many scoring chances as Galchenyuk.
