I'm not sure if he's ready yet, I think he might be, but it's funny that before the Wjc most people on here were saying that he's NHL ready and what not but after a 7 game tournament (which he was not really put in a situation to really succeed) he is not and will have to spend time in the AHL.

Bogosian was the latest but Turris and Barker also spent time in the AHL.

Bring him to training camp before people lock him up to the nhl or chl.

I think no one can know for sure how such a talented player yet so young can perform at this level.

Obviously give him a look. I don't keep him unless he dominates.

I for one think he should play. Slotted at top six left wing or top 9 with Eller to get a crash course in the pros. The leadership team will choose best and much like Seguin was dealt with, this may be the most beneficial. Honestly, his dominance in the ohl should further increase his chances to stick. What more does he need to learn? Plays a high IQ game, is oozing confidence in his abilities to be something special and is probably in better game shape physically and mentally than 60% of the current locks on this team.

No. He tweeted at 2 AM he was at the Helsinki airport for 8 hours. Figure a 6+ hour flight at least to get back to NA.

Don't put too much emphasis on the WJC.
It's a small sample size, he played with weaker linemates and had low ice time.

If he is good enough for the top 9 in camp, play him.

Obviously he'll be at the camp. Then see who is hurt, who gets hurt, how many pulled groins, etc. Maybe the numbers game and his performance add up to him going back to Sarnia, maybe it adds up to him getting a look beyond camp. Then proceeding from there. I think it would be silly to "decide" now what his ultimate destination for the rest of the year is.

Give him a look.

There is absolutely no reason to decide whether he should play in the OHL or NHL until then.

He's for sure going to be at training camp, no doubt about that.

We'll see. I think that the image of Galchenyuk in a Habs jersey is going to send a lot of us in a euphoric state of mind.

If there is still the 9-game stint in place there is no harm (other than injuries) in giving him a try-out.

This. Don't waste a year's contract for 39 additional games.

You don't think this is going to happen in the NHL?

Gally would be lucky to get 9 minutes in the NHL.

Exactly right.

He's not going on the Desharnais line, and he doesn't have the defensive experience to play on the Plekanec line.

But if he plays with Eller its not bad either and talented offensive player with skills. Add a Moen or an Armstrongs to it to create some spaces and then you're ready to go with a solid 3rdline that plays again weaker opponents!

Goldobin is a very good player, easily their second best forward and a top prospect. Sarault is a talented overage scoring forward, he's going to put up points. Boucher is a great compliment to a skilled line in that league.

You shouldn't simply read the stat line in an attempt to rate a players quality or importance. Watching the games will show you that Galchenyuk is miles ahead of all of those players and the gap is widening by the day.

With all due respect, that's a ridiculous and extremely premature statement.

Unless you're on HFBoards apparently. Where ELCs are more important than the game itself!

No he wouldn't. He will have every opportunity to play, and in either case, he won't be expected to dominate every game like some people here were expecting out of the WJCs. Hence, the perception of him playing poorly, because he isn't constantly on the highlight reels, won't be running rampant. That was his point I assume, with him saying "don't put too much emphasis on the WJC".

And let's not forget that whomever he plays with in Montreal, will still be 1000x better than Kuraly.

Galchenyuk with the Habs?

So with Gally's phenominal world juniors does anyone think the Habs are going to call him up to the big club? I thought I remembered them saying that they were going to if the lockout ended but maybe I'm just imagining things.

He'll definitely be given a shot at camp but don't expect him to crack the line-up. Barring any injuries we have a full roster. Being called up during a reduced season may be a little more unlikely than had it been a full season. Who knows though, circumstances throughout the year may get him a few games in a Habs uniform. I'd love to see him on the ice opening night just to see how he performs at a higher level of play but hey, time will tell.
