Galchenyuk: He reminds me of Matt Duchesne / Jonathan Toews. His ability to go from forehand to backhand and roof it is just phenomenal. It reminds me of a few plays I've seen Duchene pull off and few others seem to have the hockey sense to pull it off as well as these 2 seem to be able to. So a bigger / slower Duchene with the two-way / vision of Toews is more of what I see.

I don't see the Hossa comparisons as Hossa was a speedy forward with a 5th gear he could turn on in a flash to blow by defenders. Maybe the puck handling skills? But that's about it.. I'm not saying that Galchenyuk isn't fast but just that he doesn't seem to have that 'blow-by gear' that Hossa has.



Collberg: Not quite sure who to compare him to but I think Skinner might be a decent start. I don't see the Alfredsson comparison as Alfredsson has a booming shot that Collberg doesn't. Alfredsson was also pretty shifty while I don't really see that in Collberg. Skinner seems to have much faster hands and a quicker release than Collberg but the style of play seems pretty close.



I don't know enough about the other prospects so I'll just stick to these two.

Colberg - Justin Williams, his WJC scoring reminders me of Eberle....

Would we be saying Galenchyuk has a Toews comparison if we didn't draft him?

Scouts were saying it before the draft.

I have also heard Getzlaf comparisons because of his playmaking skills.

He won't be as big as Getzlaf but a better finisher. I think Toews is a nice comparison, Galcheyuk has that level of skill, similar size and passion for the game.

Having seen Thrower play a few times this is a good comparison. Not as fancy as Bieksa but more grit. Hopefully he can pick up his skating and gain weight.

He works significantly harder than Getzlaf. Getzlaf has the size and nastiness (not sure if Gally has any bite to his game) but he's willing to take entire games off.

Tinordi vs Chara... Let's watch some hockey game, right?

Kristo will probably never make it to the NHL and you have him as a comparison to a 50 goals scorer!!!

Totally agree, and I really hope Galchenyuk turns out to be a Duchene or a Toews VS a Hossa.

Toews and Duchene are a great mix of skill/talent and grit/heart.

Skinner: I really like this comparison for our Collberg.

----------------------- ------------------


From Hockey News May-June 2012 Draft magazine (more comparisons from scouts):

Galchenyuk: some scouts said...he has Bobby Ryan's hands (emphasis on hands is what one scout wrote)...and one or more scout compared Galchenyuk to Stamkos (wow!! I'll try to not get carried away here!! but we're allowed to get excited!! especially after such a terrible season...right?!).

Collberg: no comparison from Hockey News, except...some scouts went on about his great skill/talent/hands and how they are surprised he uses such a short stick to get the job done!! (not Hockey News, but...in one article a scout wrote he could become a Pat Kane-like sidekick to Galchenyuk).

Thrower: no comparison but a lot of ''he's a dman who can do it all''. For me...if he ends up a better version of Lyle Odelein I would be so happy!! (or anything close to!).

Bozon: one scout compared him to David Perron. I'll take it! Another scout said he has balls (gutsy).

Vail: no comparison... one scout said ''I see a solid 3rd line NHL player'' in the future...

Another comparison for Galchenyuk is Kopitar according to TSN, see the right hand side of the video at 0:10. Or just look at the screen shot before you hit play.

Galchenyuk is Galchenyuk and play like Galchenyuk.

anyway if his aptitude and his style of play is compared to Bobby Ryan, Kopitar, Toews, Malkin, Duchesne, don't worry, he will be an awesome player.

Collberg has an outatanding wrist shot and may very well have a great slapshot that you simply don't know about.

So many wrong in this...

Malkin play revolves over pure talent and overpowering/skating players
Toews is a softie(But still a warrior in his way..)
Hossa might be too good of a play maker for AG
Getzlaf is too rugged and too lazy to be a good comparison
I dont see any Kopitar in him...


The right comparison for Gally should be a bigger Danny Briere.

The right one for Collberg is a softer/smaller/lite version of ovechkin (basically take what makes ovie one of the best and remove it..) No knock on Collberg though !

Bozon ? Michael Ryder seem's right... Maybe Booth ...

Thrower really reminds me of Wisniewski.

I won't deny the outstanding wrist shot as that is what I see. I just would have preferred hearing about the great slapshot you know about rather than the great slapshot I don't know about. I haven't seen it and by the sounds of it, neither have you. (would love to hear otherwise as it would be exciting to think he has another great weapon for scoring)

It's not to say it isn't a possibility but then again, couldn't we say that about anything we haven't seen from a given prospect?

Yeah Chara's like the "Jack the Ripper" of hockey,Tinordi hasn't had a chance to run a Bruin through a stanchion on purpose.Zdeno must be British Royalty in another life.

What planet was Kessel on when he even got close to 50 goals.I know Kessel had some kinda surgery but did they take both,when he grows a pair Hab fans will recognize him as a real hockey player.

How is Kristo a future Darche in any way? He has a lot more natural habilities than good Ol' Math, including speed and hands.

Galchenyuk makes me think of Steve Yzerman the guy can use his body pretty well and has a good shot and great hands. Not saying he will be Yzerman but skill wise i see a ressemblance. Hossa seems like a good fit too.

Collberg probably Mogilny great speed good shot lacking physicall edge

Thrower not seen much but looks like a Barret Jackman with more grit

Bozon don't know maybe a poor mans sniper a la Ryder

Gallagher i'm seeing some Gionta in him.

Leblanc hard to tell maybe a player like Rich Peverley or TJ Oshie

Tinordi i'm seeing some Pronger more than Chara with less offensive skills

Kristo maybe Afinogenov or any speedster with good hands but undersized.
