You're right I messed that up because he played for two different teams.

I'm still super jealous we were one pick away from getting this kid, he is a true stud. Him and Tavares could have been the best 1-2 behind Sid-Geno I think.

I don't know if you remember the last Habs/Isles game last year...it was on St Patrick's day on a Saturday night. The Habs had a PP with like a minute left in a tied game that carried into OT. If we score on that PP, you guys pick ahead of us. That's how close it was. The Isles went on to win in the SO.

We probably would've had Rielly in this case.

I remember that, I was rooting so hard for us not to score and the giant tank vs not tanking debacle, ugh... I will tank that season again if I have to do it all over, it was worth it.

Or maybe TT. But for me it was always either Gally or Grigorenko and I would not have it any other way (and still not)

I don't remember that specific game but isn't that something eh!? I'm not suprised, that's the Isles' luck.

Those were lottery picks - a different outcome in that game could very have changed nothing.

But there is only one lottery ball selected. The rest go by standings. Your chances of the lottery effecting the 3rd and 4th pick is like 10-15%.

Good to see Galchenyuk finding his groove. Really was hoping he would have been available to the Leafs at 5th overall, not that I would have counted on Burke drafting him though (would have been interesting to see at least). I like the Toews comparison best...

The Hockey News posted a feature story on Galchenyuk yesterday with comments and some good footage showing his skills.

Hard not to be excited about seeing this guy in the NHL, presumably next year.

Now that he has potted some dirty goals it's really taken away some stress as a habs fan.

It's too bad that he's not eligible for the Subway Series. I would have loved to see him play with some talented linemates to really see what he can do.

I guess i'll have to wait till the WJC

Yeah for the last little while he's been really heating up.

He started off slow with only 3 points in his first 4 games...Since then, he has progressed a lot point wise..

27 points in his last 15 games.

16 points in his last 8 games

12 points in his last 5 games

9 points in his last 3 games

Hope there's NHL hockey this year, would like to see if the Habs gives him a few games, he may be NHL ready. He's certainly close.

I see Galchenyuk, if he reaches his potential, putting up Toews like numbers (But will not have half the defensieve game). You can expect him to be around ~70 points year-in and year-out IF he reaches his potential. A #1C, but not elite.


To the poster who says he will probably play around 230, are you kidding me, do you know how big that is? He will probably be 6'1 210-15 MAX in the NHL. He seems to have a sort of hunch back kind of like Lucic, not sure if anyone else has noticed that, it looks like he pushes his head forward and has a tiny neck.
He's 6'2" FYI.
