Neither one of these players will be a bruiser and both are willing to fight for space in the dirty areas.........that part of their respective games is a wash. Teams are not figuring out how to play against RNH, he just hasn't been healthy enough to play the way that he is capable of.
Well when I see RNH play, he is getting tossed around and his frame is much smaller than galchenyuk, he is much more lanky too. I have seen RNH play last year and in his rookie seasons and he is definetly not the kind of player who will be creating space with his body. Galchenyuk does have that aspect, not that he will hit, but protect the puck and is tougher to knock off than RNH.
There is a reason other than his shoulder for his sophomore slump.
