I should be able to grab the highlights tonight. If anyone has a box score or knows approximately when Gally picked up his points, it'd be a big help.

True. I didn't mean so much composition or style of team. More just where they rank in the league and roughly how tough they are to beat.

They lack depth definitely, but if I were to give you an NHL comparable, it'd probably be a Florida or a Minnesota (pre-signings). i.e. Not a title threat by any stretch, but definitely not an easy 2 points.
That's an interesting way to look at it, but who is Florida's and Minnesota's Galchenyuk? I mean currently on the team, because obviously they have prospects as good as him.

Yup!

He has turned it on so much lately that I'm starting to see what Timmins said by ''he'' will decide when he's ready and I think Gally's been making a strong case for himself lately. Not only getting his timing back but he is physically ready for the NHL in my opinion, sure he could and will get bigger but for comparison's sake he's already bigger than Ribeiro who can average 70 points with a 177 lbs frame. I am starting to believe he might just make the team out of camp if the NHL were to have a shortened season.

Playing on the wing surely makes it more probable... Gally-Pleks-Gionta ? 2 great mentors...

I would love that, he would get tons of minutes to boot in an offensive role while Pleks shows him how its done on the D side.

Right now, do you think that Galchenyuk is better than Leblanc ? Or Gallagher or Holland or Bournival ?

He's closer to being able to compete in the NHL right now. I agree.

Him on the 1st line PK unit with Tomas Plekanec would be deadly as he would learn from our best PK guy. As for his regular linemates, I'd rather see him start on the 3rd line with Eller and Leblanc. To have a energy line that plays 2 way so he can learn how to be responsible..just like how Claude Julien did with Seguin. Then the year after, you give him top 6 minutes with great players like centering Pacioretty and Cole that would be deadly.

OH hell yeah. He's actually already better than all of the forwards in Hamilton IMO.

im not sure about this. From what i've heard, Reid Boucher has a more powerful shot than him. About accuracy, i've heard a lot of miss the net, miss a big chance, shots on the wrong place... It seems not top nutch for the moment and has more the recognition of a playmaker. I wish im wrong

Fantastic.

Wow Gally is getting better and better. Some of those shifts were just dominating. His hands and vision are just unreal.

Geez, he's so unique too. I watch that video and I can't think of too many players who I can compare him to in terms of style. He's seemingly able to pull off any move at any point in time.

Also, even though he's not playing ''center'' per se, he's usually in the middle of the ice anyway.

That video is just disgusting. He does everything you want in a star forward. Sneaky, creative passes, great movement away from the puck as well as with the puck. Good stickhandling in tight. Not only does he look better, but so does Sarnia. Much better puck movement.

I'm starting to think he look more like Peter Forsberg. Talented playmaker with size, great two-way play and the ability to score from time to time. Both have incredible hands. Gally look more like Forsberg than Hossa, imo.
