After the game I met him and got his signature, was pretty nice.
Im going tomorrow night, how did you go about getting his autograph?

Nice highlights. Very generous of Sarault to let Gally get the hat trick. Also good work by him on Sarnia's 4th goal: even if Koekkoek was off-balance when Sarault knocked him over, it still made for a nice clip. And I have to admit, Boucher can really shoot the puck.

Also, I'm extremely happy we got this kid, wanted him before the draft, and he's showing why I wanted him, besides the injury. So happy CLB passed on him, even though they made a good pick with Murray.

I'll never forget the excitement experienced when Howson said ''from the WHL''.

Then it was 5 minutes of wondering if we really were going to screw up and take Teravainen.

So I wasnt the only one who screamed really loudly when Howson selected Murray? I went off and started running around my house screaming "WE GOT GALLY, **** YOU LEAF FANS".......

I also remember draft night, how Galchenyuk's stock was rapidly rising before the draft, and looking at people's mock drafts to see if they thought Columbus might consider taking him at #2 or reading news to see if the Leafs would try and move up.

I think it would have been a big blow if the Habs, having their highest pick in two decades, were 'forced' to take a defenseman because the draft was extremely defense-heavy, or use the pick on a forward that might not warrant the #3 pick.

I think most would agree, there was the feeling that the Habs were going for Galchenyuk.

There were a bunch of us HF'ers at Mckibbons for the habs draft party. When CBJ select Murray, the entire place exploded. It got even crazier when we picked gally. No doubt he was the house's pick.

On his assist, I don't think he deliberately meant for the puck to go right to Boucher, but I do think he simply meant to cause a crazy rebound. Didn't have much to shoot at, so might as well cause some chaos. Smart play and it ended up making him look awesome.

That sounds so much better than any (hazy) memories I have of Mckibbons.

Same as the Habs draft party down at the Bell Centre.

Desharnais wanted a winger. Wonder why.

I would take Galchenyuk over Yakupov right now. They are both elite talents but Yakupov has a huge ego and I suspect he will be a very exciting player but he will also come with alot of headaches. Galchenyuk seems to be much more of a team player who will buy into the team concept and playing in all three zones. IMO players like Galchenyuk contribute to a team's success more than players like Yakupov. At the end of the day the reason that an NHL team such as Montreal exists is to win championships. Galchenyuk imo is a better building block towards this goal than Yakupov and at this point in their development is the better pro prospect.

I still would have taken Yakupov at #1 due to some of the uncertainty surrounding Galchenyuk at the time but as of right now I prefer Galchenyuk. I am very happy that Timmins saw the Galchenyuk/Grigorenko debate in the same light as me and some others on this board although it is funny how many people here were against taking Galchenyuk at #3 are all of the sudden fans of his since he was a 16 year old......

Just for fun:

previous stats:
GP G A PTS
68 31 52 83

Pro-rated 12/13 stats:
GP G A PTS
68 48 73 121

That is what I call progression!

The guys ahead of him?

Seth Griffin has 49 points in 29 games, and is 13 months older than Galchenyuk.

Ryan Strome has 59 points in 30 games (!!!), and is 7 months older than Galchenyuk.
And both play on stronger teams, I believe.

Big Time. I don't think there could've been a better fit for our needs than Alex. I don't blame anyone for not getting their hopes up because we've seemed cursed for so long and Galch seems like a gift from the Hockey Gods who've seen enough of our pain and the unholy crime for MTL to go this long without a premier talent at forward.

Safe to say I'll be sitting on pins and needles until #94 is hanging from the Bell Centre roof 20 years from now.
