In all seriousness, Galchenyuk is my favourite player, but for him to reach the level of Malkin is unrealistic. Malkin's 1st 3 seasons were all respectively 85, 106 and 113 points. Galchenyuk's raw talent is nowhere near Malkin's skillset. Where Galchenyuk excels is his 2-way play. The kid is very well rounded already at his age. I prefer to have a lower expectation in terms of production for Galchenyuk. IMO, if he can be a 70-80 points, 2-way center that shows up in the playoffs, we have ourselves a franchise cornerstone.
