If you think Glachenyuk is already a better overall player than Deshanais then you are beyond help, because NOBODY on the roster had more sheltered minutes than him

Don't get me wrong, I love his skill and upside and I think he will be 3x the player Desharnais is in 2-3 years, but RIGHT NOW, he has a lot to work on to not be a liability in certain sutuations.
Galchenyuk wasn't getting sheltered in terms of opposition he played against any more than Desharnais (statistically, DD was actually sheltered more). He was sheltered more in the sense of keeping him away from difficult situations like protecting leads. Even in terms of zone starts, DD had a higher Off-Zone %.

Neither DD or Galckenyuk/Eller faced opposition top lines.
