But don't remember "perfect centermen" being moved to the wings regularly even if it's just in Juniors.....Am I not seeing what I should see?

By the way....did I dream this or wasn't Sarault supposed to be invited by the Dogs at their camp? What happened?
I'm not exactly sure why Galchenyuk playing wing. Galchenyuk rotated the first couple games at wing and centre, before finally settling at centre. He was then split up from Goldobin and got moved to RW. Over that period of time at centre he was pretty bad at faceoffs, so that's really the only problem I can see. Lately he's been pretty damn good in dot, but it's a small sample size.

Sarault cannot play wing. They tried it earlier this year and he was down right terrible, had no idea where to be on the ice. Boucher is clearly a much better LW then he his RW, so Galchenyuk is the one who gets stuck with RW.

It seems to me that Beaulieu wants his first line just to overpower teams offensively, but the problem is the line up becomes very unbalanced. Ideally I want to the see the top 2 lines like this: Boucher - Sarault - Hottot, Goldobin - Galchenyuk - Moore.

The good part of all this is that he's looked pretty damn good at all three forward positions, so it's a good experience for him.

I knew about Sarault, but not Basso. Solid invite, Basso had a breakout year last year and really shored up his defensive game.

It was in the Sarnia paper this week: http://www.theobserver.ca/2012/10/23...n-super-series

Who knows if he'll get one next year when hopefully there is a full camp.

I am listening to the game CHOK and is it just me, or is Gally's line not getting used very much?

It's their 3rd game in 3 and half days with lots of travel, that's probably the reason why.

Here's a video an insane shift some Gally today. Some really nice moves in there. Pay attention to how active he was in the offensive zone and how he moved around to get good chances.



Sorry the terrible quality by the way. I recorded it from the stream on hockeystreams and it seems to be a bit choppy for me.

He has an assist on goal #2.

So that's good.

Sarault is a turnover machine today. Galchenyuk is the best player on the ice so far. Gotta say it has been quite a sloppy game all-around though.

It was a lob from the sting zone that bounced over the Battalion D's stick so Gally went in pretty much alone. Comes in on the goalie from the right side, goes inside, outside and in. Was a real nice goal.
