Also w/ regard to him being a third rounder, IIRC analysts had him all over the board, I remember seeing as high as top-15, as well as some slotting him in the third-fourth rounds
The Russian Factor always kicks in, until the KHL and NHL have an agreement. I thought early 2nd round for Galiev

Top 6 W. I've been impressed with his two-way game and compared to other Russian prospects, he doesn't have much of a "Russian factor".

Top-6 and sooner than that, based on what I've seen/heard.

Named CHL player of the week.

I like his active stick and willingness to mix it up a bit and go to traffic areas. He's answered the draft-year question about his ability to finish, at least at the junior level. He's still pretty raw away from the puck but he's not a floater. If he bulks up a bit this summer he could make a strong case for a roster spot depending on the roster/coach/system.

You guys need to look at the Caps top 6 if you don't think he is top 6.

Ovi=Nicky>>>>Semin>MoJo=Galiev>>>>>>>>>>>>>Laich

Has definite top 6 potential. He's got a good motor though, so a bottom six energy role is not out of the question (especially early in his career). Needs to bulk up a bit more, but he's got good hockey sense and is willing to go to the hard areas of the ice (though we'll see what happens when he's playing against pros).

I've been really sold on this kid for a long time, way more than I am about Eakin. Galiev's the type of player you always notice on the ice.

The only time I have seen him actually play is in the Memorial Cup last season and I wasn't all that impressed.

That being said his playoffs numbers this season are pretty incredible but that team is completely stacked so...

I loved his story when the Caps drafted him though and really liked the pick.

I think if he is going to be an NHL player he has to be in the top 6 though.

He should be friends with Ovi, btw. They're both Muscovites and Dynamo alumni. And yeah, they probably ARE friends

Listed at 6'1" 188lbs, but I think that's a bit generous.

Take about a inch off, 5 pounds, That's about it. Your top 6 could be:

Ovie-Backstrom-Kuznetsov
Johanson-Laich-Galiev

He has some nice skills but he is nowhere near as skilled as Semin. If I was going to compare his best case skill set translation to a recent Cap it would be Fleischmann, which is nothing to sneeze at...

Like many CHL players, he couldn't adjust to the more physically demanding AHL. Next year is a big year, if he doesn't turn it around and become a good player in the AHL, I doubt he'll ever play an NHL game.

I Watched him play last season in Reading he has a hell of a hard shot he picked up on the physical aspect towards the end of the season . I really hope he gets the call to the ahl this year he deserves it

There's definitely a spot open for him to win in Hershey's top six (maybe even on the top line) this year. It's up to him to see if he can translate his successful camps into successful seasons in Hershey, and perhaps Washington down the road. He didn't look "bad" in Hershey (especially after his first demotion), he just failed to produce and that's what he's counted on to do. He's not a very useful player in the bottom six.
