I just want him to play against tougher opposition. Sarnia isn't that good of a team, they have no structure and he's tied for 3rd in scoring in the ohl. Oh and he missed an entire year last year and started the season off "slow".

You're probably right about the greater risk of injury, just would be curious to see his play against tougher opponents.

Are you kidding me?

That was the worse give away I've seen in a while. In the slot, gives it away to the colt player, tape to tape. Almost komisarek to cammy style.

Brutal. Looked like Latta.

4-2 EN.

Terrible giveaway to decide the game like that.

Galchenyuk still had a strong game. Played 17:03 tonight (21 shifts) and looked strong on the special teams, as well as fore-checking 5-on-5. Two more assists means 34 points on the season, tied for 3rd with Boone Jenner - who has played two games more than Galchenyuk.

couple that with 2 goals from Vail and 4pts from Archambault and it's not a bad night from a habs perspective.

5-3 win for Barrie. It was a really awesome game, I'm glad I was in attendance. Galchenyuk finished with 2 assists.

Galchenyuk showed off some really good skills in the first period. He was quiet for the most part, but I was really impressed with what he can with the puck. Watching him on TV doesn't to his hands. There was multiple times where he flipped he puck over the defenceman's stick just enough. He didn't flick it too high, just enough so the defenceman couldn't reach it. He also had some crazy good passes. There was one shift where he stole the puck twice on one shift. His saucer passes are beautiful. They just raise enough off the ice to go over the stick and made it on the tape almost every time. His teammates had no trouble whatsoever trapping his passes, really impressed. In the second Galchenyuk picked up his play. He was all over the ice and make some good plays. His first assist came from a pass to the point in which Connor Murphy blasted home. His puck skills are just unreal. I cannot stress that enough. In the third Galchenyuk had some really good plays. He went through the Colts multiple times and had some really smart plays. His second assist came off a beautiful stretch pass to Sarault who set up Boucher.

Overall, I thought Galchenyuk played a great game. Very solid in his own zone, made some good plays. He did have a few turnovers, but apart from those controlled the puck well and made good passes in his own zone. Offensively, he looked head and shoulders above everyone on the ice. His passes, the little flicks, how he pushed the puck forward. He was just incredible. Something that impressed me the most was his speed. He was the fastest player out there. He exploded out of his zone during the breakout. I was really impressed. His acceleration still isn't the best, but his top end speed was easily the best out there tonight. Good game, very impressed with Galchenyuk tonight.
________________

-Connor Murphy was the best player on the ice. He was physical, he moved the puck well and shut down the Barrie offense. He had a beautiful goal from a hard slapper and picked up an assist from a nice feed to Boucher. I was very very impressed. He looks like a man amongst boys out there. He also made some good rushes and made great outlet passes.
-Joshua Chapman was great tonight as well. Very, very solid tonight. Quite a few people were raving about him in the stands. He looked very confident and very smart, made good passes and was physical. I expect him to a much bigger role on Sarnia by the end of the year. He gets better every night.
-Jordan Addesi and Alex Renaud were great tonight. Physical and protected the puck extremely well tonight. Two very smart players who are worth keeping an eye out for.
-Mark Scheifele is too damn good for the OHL. He looks like an NHLer out there. Smarter than every one else. He made so many little smart plays that most would never think of. He's going to be one hell of an NHLer.
-Anthony Camara was up and down tonight. He wasn't physical at all and had trouble controlling the puck. However he did pick up a goal off a terrible turnover. He did good work on the boards too.
-Andreas Athanasiou was excellent tonight. He picked up two goals. One from a great one timer and the other from a beautiful move to create space and then a hard shot. He played surprising physical too, he wasn't afraid of going to the corners at all and battled hard. He used his body surprising well to protect the puck. Incredible hands too.

Sounds like he picked up two points on a off night. I rather he dominated and got none though.

Off nights are going to happen, he can't dominate every game. I would rather he gets points in a off night and come back with a strong performance the next game.

I wouldn't really call it an off night. The entire Sarnia team had a very slow 1st period and let Barrie take it to them. Shots after the first were 7-4 for the Colts. When the second period started, it was ALL Sarnia. By mid-way point of the period, shots were 16-11 in favor of Sarnia. Basically 12 shots in 10 minutes. I also wouldn't call 2 assists an off night. He played well.

As for Athanasiou, holy hell can the kid fly. Strong on the puck too.

another solid looking late pick by the Red Wings, not really surprising anymore

Let's see how he develops first. 1-he looked like chicken with it's head cut off most of last year, great speed but accomplished very little on the ice. 2-the Red Wings have not drafted that well in the last 10 years. They still live off the glory of picks like Lidstrom Zetterberg and Datsyuk.

They haven't drafted superstars but they've drafted some good roster players like Ericsson, Helm, Franzen, Filppula, Quincey in late rounds.

That's not THAT impressive... the habs have drafted more late round steals. We just didn't keep them

Yeah, but the last one they drafted was Darren Helm in 2005. Lately their drafting has really not been anything special...

Anyways, I think it's a great sign that Gally still picks up points in games where he doesn't dominate. He can't dominate every night and he will have games/days where he's off a little for whaetever reason just like us. Some days are better then others but because of his talent, he'll still produce even when he's not taking over a game.

Nothing yet.

OHL.com has stopped producing highlights the last 2 weeks.

Barrie Colts website has nothing up yet, but they seem to put the highlights of their home games up.

My bad I was going mostly by the reports, didn't actually see the game this time. I think what I meant to say was he wasn't dominating like we're used to, someone said he was floating in the first. Like I said though, I'll gladly leave the assists it it means he was looking strong from start to finish, and creating scoring opportunities left and right but two points is two points.

Something that I forgot to mention was how big Galchenyuk looked. He was just a little bit shorter than Scheifele who's fairly listed at 6'3" and clearly taller than Camara who's somewhat generously listed at 6'1". His legs were tree trunks too. He looked a lot stronger than most on the ice.

Forgot to mention Ekblad last night too. He was very quiet, but was very solid. I was focusing on him a lot and he didn't disappoint. He's a potential franchise defenceman.

Beginning of season, Galchenyuk playing well but not getting too many points.

Now, Galchenyuk getting lots of points, but can't auto-win games by himself.

Well its more because he has been doing well these past few games. It's one off night, he will come back strong tonight against the Wolves.

It's funny but it's true!
Ideally he will dominate AND get points on a consistent basis, it will come
That's why he is still in the OHL. (other than there being a lockout of course)

How do Gally do against Schiefele, as he did score one more point than Schiefele, but I know that doesn't tell the whole story. Who looked better?
