Congrats on Gally making the team. You guys got imo the best player in the draft. Good luck!

If I am Habs management and I see or hear that I just give it to him.
He clearly wants it but is afraid to ask.

Don't understand why he wouldn't, it's not like the number belonged to an ex-hab great.

That's weird. Don't get me wrong i like 27 (Kovalev FTW) but there is no reason he can't wear 94.. The fact he wasn't told he can take it makes me wonder, he's a top flight player and should be allowed to take any number he wants.

The 2010-11 Kings are a great example of what goes into putting together a great shootout season. Exceptional performances over a small sample size.

In 2011-12, Pacioretty got the call for more shootouts than any other Hab. He went 2 for 13, 15.4%. His average for his short career is 20%. Is anyone going to make the argument that Pacioretty was a worse shooter last season than previously in his career? His numbers will stabilize, I would take a bet that his career average will end up closer to 30%.
You can't just pick and choose your spots. You are dealing with exceptions and ignoring the fact that there is a large group of players that are very consistent in their success rates. There obviously has to be variations and there are going to be examples that are more extreme than others.......like i said these are the exceptions and have no place in a rational discussion.

Yannik is coach of his sons Novice A team in Magog ( Cantonniers ), he is a SUPER nice guy. They won our tournament over Mirabel. A class act that Yannik i tell you.

If you read through the thread, you'll see I'm not the one who brought up the 2010-11 Kings, or last year's Habs. Others are picking those examples. I'm just pointing out why they are outliers.

Maybe... if he wears it on game 1 he will make it his own. Nothing else to add.

The big thing is that previous success in the shootout is not a good predictor off how well a guy will do in a given season. There simply aren't enough SO shot events for the skill element to predominate over the chance element.

Or the more likely reason: he's a professional. He knows as much as anyone as these 5 games are a tryout...why would you start asking for a number now when you could be back in Sarnia in two weeks?

The Canadiens cut seven players before their skate Friday, and neither Galchenyuk nor Gallagher were on that list.

"I was very happy," Galchenyuk said. "There's been no better feeling in my life so far."
I had no idea that Galchenyuk was a virgin :-)
