I like Galchenyuk just fine, so no need to go there. I would expect Oilers fans to feel similarly about RNH. I would expect neutral fans to lean towards RNH, he has the higher draft profile and 52 points in his rookie season. Fair enough.
Statistically speaking, RNH might had 52 pts in his rookie season, but they both finished with approx. the same PPG last season, while Galchenyuk was also able to play all 48 games. But one thing that impressed me from Galchenyuk is that he finished the season with 12 pts in his last 13 games. That's pretty impressive. Can't wait to see how he will start this season.
