The 7 seconds when he had the puck on his stick with the powerplay led to damn near one of the best chances for the U.S. in the entire period.
He touched the puck three times while in the offensive zone.

1. Led to a pass to Rielly, for a shot on net.
2. Led to a pass to Trouba, for a shot on net.
3. Led to a nice dangle and a shot that went wide.

Kuraly is playing bad. When he has the puck you just know it will be turned over.

Good shift there by Gally.

I feel bad for Gally. Waiting on the wing for a pass that unfortunately will never come.

Every time he has the puck, USA has a chance to score, despite what Ray Ferraro wants us to believe.

does Trouba ever leave the ice? He does look great. He might just be a better all around defender than Rielly.

Ferarro saying that Galchenyuk was invisible against Russia and is non-existent here today. Needs to get open more and work harder.

... Is he watching a different tournament?

I am unsure why he isn't getting top offensive duties.

I mean, Miller? Grimaldi? Nothing against them, but really?

And yes, I'm late.

Ferraro is, hands down, the worst colour man I have ever heard. This includes Benoit Brunet. He's just garbage. He's a garbage commentator, and he's garbage! GARBAGE!

How has Gally only played about 30 seconds of this powerplay so far, if that? Lol

Galchenyuk's missed the net 3 times tonight, he has to be better there.

But I don't blame his puck skills for being off since he's barely touched the thing tonight. How did he get only one touch on the puck in 4 minutes of powerplay time? Killing me Housley.

His hilarious attempt to get mad at Lapierre for an accidental collision with Scott Nichol was the crowning moment of his colour commentary experience. "I THINK YOURE GARBAGE LAPIERRE!!! GRRR"

What? He played 1:33 and then 0:58 during that double minor.

The US just isn't a very good team. Starts behind the bench.

With the talent he has, no matter the composition of the lines, Gally needs to make the guys around him better. He is not doing it so far. He's just another player of a really weak offensive squad right now. Not that it's at all relevant, but the kid stays in Juniors. You do not waste a year on half of a season.

Really? Wow, the team can never get him the puck so it didn't seem like that much.

Also, I had posted that after his first shift, so i was just a minute off

Great rush by Gally but again, misses the net. WS makes a good point in his last post too.

The way I see it, Canada is making it really difficult for him to get the puck. His linemates struggle to make plays under the type of pressure they get, and it shows.

It's up to the coach to see that and make changes, but he's MIA so far.
