I like TSN's comparison to Anze Kopitar. If Galchenyuk can improve his defensive game like Kopita rhas in recent years, i can see him becoming a similar play.

Galchenyuk was one of the best defensive forwards drafted last year.

I think you missed the joke though he's sayin he wants Vail to TO just so he can shut down Gally.

Haha oh ok. But what's the point considering Gally can't be stopped by anyone?

Gally nets the hattrick goal to go along with 2 assists vs kingston in the final game before the break. One point back of strome for the OHL points lead.

I try not to get to excited about this prospect, but for once, I think the Habs can finally count on a world class talent.

Can you imagine the circus in Montreal around his first nhl game? I hope it won't get to his head.

I don't know if it's going to be that much of a happening. Galchenyuk isn't all that popular for casual fans... Almost an unknown. Casual fans in Montréal are more interested in upcoming quebecer talents. The biggest hype for a prospect I can remember post lock-out is Latendresse.

Ever heard of kovalev... once they see him play and dangle they will be in love and adopt him as their own son. Kovy was loved even with his primadonna attitude

Yeah that I know. Galchenyuk will undoubtedly make a name for himself. I just don't see him coming into the league with a ton of hype.

The media is going to hype it up something huge. Everyone in Montreal is going to know.

No way. The hype will be huge. He's a top 3 pick, most casual fans know about him already.

He is just too good, I am still mad that he ended up with the Habs, why couldn't the damn Columbus snag him at the draft.

It's going to be a massive deal, especially if he does well at the WJC.

I honestly thought Strome was going to run away with the OHL scoring title with no problem, but Gally has a really good shot at it now.

He's not all that talked about right now in the media. Not on RDS, nor in the newspaper... I don't know, maybe it'll change once the lockout is over, but as of right now, Galchenyuk is barely talked about.

Once hockey starts, the media will hype him up for sure.

Right now there isn't much hockey to talk about that's why no one really talks about him.

There's just no way talent like this can sneak its way into Montreal when hockey is so covered here usually

He will be talked about for sure if and when the team fails, in order to call him up. That would be the media just doing its job.

There was a lot more talk in the media this week after Bergevin said he'd get invited to training camp.
