My twitter timeline reads like a Galchenyuk love journal from everyone in the media right now. He wowed everyone in a shootout drill.

Should also give him a good base in terms of how to conduct himself defensively as a forward at the NHL level.
So you're comfortable with Galchenyuk playing on a line that goes up against Gaborik - Richards - Nash when we face the Rangers?
But then again, who, apart from Plekanec and Moen, would make you feel comfortable against such a line !? Let's tank
Edit: Damn, I forgot Price. Alright then folks, we should go all offense and keep Gally on Pleky's wing.
Gionta is one of the games better ES two-way wingers. Cole played shutdown matchups in CAR. Pacioretty is a sufficiently dominant LW that you can probably slot him up against anyone. Eller acquits himself decently against opposition's best when facing them at times last year.
These + Plekanec/Moen are the hard matchup forwards MTL has right now
