The kid is so good, it's ridiculous! His takeaway ability is already second best on the team (behind Markov) and the best among forwards.

I don't think you guys realize how good of a player we have and we are just wasting him on the wing. We don't even let him take faceoffs in the offensive zone.
He'll never reach his full potential if he's played at wing over center, imo. He really needs to start playing center. There'll be growing pains and some mistakes, but just let it go. We have a superstar goaltender, we have a superstar defenseman and we can have a superstar center if we let him develop the way he should.

This is Therrien though so I fully expect Galchenyuk to continue playing wing and when he makes a mistake, get benched for an entire period or more.
