This is dumb, wait until Gally plays in the NHL before making a poll like this.


Polls with an NHL player vs. prospect go to the established guy 9 times out of 10.

Wayyyyyyyyy too many close minded people here. Good god. That's right. I need my ego stroked. So glad you could take time out of your busy day to do that. Jeeze...

Looking past the fact that RNH is in the NHL already and Gally hasn't yet, based purely off potential of each player, who would you rather have? Many argued Gally could've been the 1st overall pick last season had he not been injured. Where would you gauge his production to RNH's in their best seasons?

If you are going to come in here and insinuate that this poll is fishing for compliments or ego stroking *******, please just don't answer. Its unconstructive and very belittling to someone who is actually taking an interest in this discussion. The more and more I see of Gally, the more and more I can see where some fans might say the gap isn't as big as some make it out to be. Not saying I still wouldn't take Nuge cause I love him haha.

Both look like they will be good NHLers but, RNH already is a good NHLer. Based on his skill set, I can see RNH being the bigger star in the league but, it is early. Nobody knows for sure.

Galchenyuk has the potential to be at RNH's level or higher.

So it's a wash.

It's obviously Galchenyuk. AINEC

Ryan Nugget-Hopwhatever is sooo skinny, only good on the powerplay, worst first overall pick in years, et cetera

They don't really play all that similar. Especially when you consider Joes shooting ability.

If telling OP his player is better than someone else' will stroke his ego, he's in for a helluva lot of stroking in the future.

also voted for Galchenyuk just because of the stupidity of the poll

although I won't be shocked if he actually does end up better at some point in the future

I think RNH, in his prime, will be a 30 goal, 55 assist player. Maybe once or twice eclipsing 90 points.
Galchenyuk on the other hand, may be a 30 goal, 45 assist player. Maybe a few times getting over 80 points.
On pure offensive stats, RNH has the potential to be one of the top in the league at one point. In the same class as Sidney Crosby, JT, Steven Stamkos... Galchenyuk will be in with the Kopitar, Toews and Kane's of the NHL.

I do think all-around game, Galchenyuk wins. He doesnt have the hockey IQ RNH has but he has sick passes, hard wrist shots and makes his teammates better. He is also already bigger than Nugent-Hopkins. Gally also plays penalty kill and the point on the PP. He is a more versatile and complete player.
So Gally wins in all around play, although he is also sick offensively.

So IMO, Galchenyuk will be a SLIGHTLY better player than RNH but I will say its a draw since Gally has to prove himself.

RNH because I've never actually seen Galchenyuk play, aside from seeing highlight reels.

Based ''entirely on potential''. Hey due to my incredible psychic powers (also known as ''homer vision''), I hereby decrete Galchenyuk has higher potential than RNH, just to spite Oilers fans who won't care anyways.

Hopkins has 82 votes.
Galchenyuk has 26 votes, which were all made to spite Hopkins.
It's a wash has 4 votes, which were all made to spite Oiler fans.

So the poll is actually 112 Hopkins - 0 Gally.

I hate polls like this, unfortunately typical to HF Boards. Who has a crystal ball, really? The truth is that no one knows. If you asked now, it's RNH because he's made the NHL while Galchenyuk is a prospect playing junior. Get on your time machine and come back to tell me.

If you read the thread, you would know that the argument isn't RNH vs. Galchenyuk, it's whether the difference between the two makes up for the difference between Dubnyk/Price.
