He really is 6'0" maybe 6'0"1/2 i really have non idea how the draft people had him at 6'2"... all official height like iihf for the WJC had him at 183cm wich is exactly 6'0"... not that i think it makes a "huge difference" but he isnt 6'2" thats all.

He's always looked 6'1/5 to me. He's definitely taller than Louis Leblanc.

Really slow saturday as u say lol. He look bigger but like some said he seems to hunch a little so maybe if he would stand fully extended he would be 6'1 1/2 lol i guess his height will always remain a mystery.

Cant wait to see first clips of him training with the boys.

He looks like a little tank for sure. Some players are just strong. I Dont worry about his size at all. He reminds me of cole.. who looks bigger than advertised.

I work for the sting. Gally measured in at less than half an inch short than 6'2, also his last recorded weight was 207lbs

That's what I thought. He's considerably taller than 6'0 ft.

Sarnia has him at 6'2'' 205lbs while the IIHF has him at 198cm. And since Ryan Murray is 6'1'', it was pretty clear that at draft day, Gally never was 6'2''....but is he there now?

How do you know Murray is really 6'1?

He looks 6'1.5'' to me.

Look at his shoulders compared to Murray's. That's what matters.

That's exactly the recorded hieght from the draft combine with I think a 9 pound increase in weight.

Sounds plausible. Similar in size to what Eller supposedly was last season.

If I ever saw a girl with those shoes, I'd probably think she's into her own genre.

I think your math needs work.....6'2" - .5" = 6'1.5"

He measured in at 6'0.5" at the combine. Can we end this silly discussion about his height now? I don't care what Sarnia lists him as.....it wouldn't be the first time a junior team inflated a players measurements.

Either way, we should be getting a training camp weight/height sheet soon enough.

Don't the teams customarily release overstated biometric data? In the old days, when I was occasionally admitted to teams' dressing rooms, I noticed at first hand that the players seldom were as tall as advertised. I didn't get the point, since it didn't fool the opponents. Maybe it's done to boost the fans' morale. Galchenyuk is what he is and what Bergevin wanted. Period.

Really, I was pretty sure it was 6'1.5" then.

Not that it matters much overall.
