Oh he is staying for sure.. he keeps 9n getting better and better and its obvious both bergy and therrien have huge man crush for him... the way they talk about his work ethic and talent and malkin and crosby... they want him to learn and he is doing that like a champ. A real sponge out there sky is the limit.

With Patches out for a while. There's no doubt in my mind Galchenuke and Gallagher are staying, unless we make a trade to fill in gaps.

even if Pacman wasnt hurt,,,he still be staying ....

I said right after draft ,he will be in a Montreal jersey this season.....most disagreed.

I said if Yak was good enough to play for Oilers this year, Gally was good enough to play for Habs this year....

As i said before,Gally imho,is goona be our Malkin ....just wait till he packs on another 25-30 pounds.

We picked 3rd,but i feel we got the first overall pick..

Galchenyuk is getting better each game. Is it my imagination or what?

Yea. What I meant is that with Patches out, it's guaranteed he's staying. I thought that he would have stayed. But I just mean that the current situation pretty much seals the deal.

So far, I'm very content with GalcheNuke. I don't know how he'll fair further along this season. And how he'll be compared to Yakupov. But so far, they're very comparable (performance wise), and I may dare say that GalchNuke is slightly ahead (probably biased). But I'll reserve a better judgement after the season.

The Habs may be moving up the ladder faster than some of us think and reinforcements may arrive in a year or two. Galchenyuk will stick and Gallagher seems promising. It might be a good idea to trade Cole before he decides to pull a Thomas. That would enable Bergevin to offer more to Subban. Add Subban, subtract Cole, sign a younger UFA (AKost, for instance) for a year or two if there's a lag before Collberg is ready. In short, trading Markov or Plekanec would be a bad idea because it would impede the Habs' progress. The only players who look out of place are Kaberle and Weber. The Habs already look too good to descend to #28-30 this time. The net effect of Gauthier's so=called mismanagement might be beneficial after all. Those three second rounders may be just what the doctor ordered.

I don't mind if fans think this is too eccentric. I haven't seen a more sensible plan. The tankards don't seem to know how to tank intelligently because they don't really know the Habs' strengths and weaknesses.

I have seen a couple of games from Yakupov. Different style of playing compared to Galchenyuk. But Galchenyuk is going to be a more complete player. We may get the best player in last year draft.

For the rare times that I watch l'antichambre. They made an interesting point on GalcheNuke's progress. That some new players were put with top, established players. In consequence, they'd feel pressure to live up to the expectations, all the while trying to adapt for the more seasoned players. But once those same newbies were put on other lines, sometimes other newbies. They'd feel more comfortable, less under pressure and play their style. And that it would allow them to develop into way better players.

I think this is the same situation with GalcheNuke so far. When he played with Pleks and Gio, he didn't suck, but was so so. Doing some right things, showing some potential. But overall, didn't give much reason to keep him past 5 games. Once MT put him with Gallagher and Prust, his play style changed. Seemed more relaxed and playing to his pace.

I'm sure that once he gets the hang of it and feels more comfortable, he could play on a top 2 line ass a winger. But so far, why would you do that? He's doing very fine as it is.

I come to the same conclusion as you. Galchenyuk, IMHO, is a more complete player than Yakupov.

I prefer Galchenyuk, but i'm pretty sure Yapukov will put up more points, at least this season.

Yakupov's been playing really well lately. I'd say, for now, he's ahead of Galchenyuk. However, I'm very pleased with how Galchenyuk's adapted thusfar. I think it's going to be close between these two over their careers.

Yakupov may put up more goals, but Galchenyuk may end up with more points.

Yaku got 22 games in KHL to get used to playing vs men...Gally didn't get that luxury...You can see Gally's confidence really growing , look at tonight,controlling the puck .I've watched every game so far,and every game he has got better.

Taking into account the amount of time he lost last year, it's incredible that he's playing so well at this level.

I agree, he's come a decent ways since his first game. He's doing a lot of great things now. Especially his work around the net.

Excuse me, but I'm in character, sir. Now if you don't mind I'll continue playing my "trying way too hard to be objective habs fan" role.

He's on schedule to be a very good player, probably a second tier star type like Toews. A two way PPG 1st line center with size would be awesome.

On Prust’s goal, Galchenyuk worked the puck deep before retreating to the blueline to bat down a clearing attempt, then served a pass to Prust that the rough-hewn winger was able to golf out of the air past Brodeur.

“He’s really skilled for a kid his age ... you don’t see very many 18-year-olds who have the patience to do that,” said Brodeur, one of several NHLers who is old enough to be Galchenyuk’s dad (Brodeur’s oldest, Anthony, is 17).

I'm surprised Grigorenko hasn't put up any points. I actually envisioned him outplaying Galchenyuk right off the hop. Has anyone seen him play?

Galch is 5th in rookie scoring and everyone else is older than him.

Especially when you have a solid option in Eller for that #3 C slot.

Sort of hoping Desharnais gets the flu or something on Sunday so we can see Galchenyuk at C with legit top 6 wingers.
Quoted for hilarious irony!

According to Sabres fans, they'll be surprised if he doesn't go back down.

He has shown flashes of skill but Ruff doesn't have confidence in him playing in the top six so he's been playing fourth line minutes or being pasted to the bench.

Basically, you know how Therrien said that Galchenyuk will be sent down if he isn't keeping a spot in the top 9 and playing more than 12 minutes? That's Grig's situation. That said, Darcy might still keep him up and force Ruff to play him.

I certainly saw explosiveness last night, quite a few times, including on both the plays that he assisted on.

I like Galchenyuk, but let's not be carried away. At best, we can say the top-3 was very close.
I said virtually, and we can agree that the top-3 were very close. Which is my point. We are talking about a guy that in a given year could have been a first overall draft pick, he is that good.

Also, his overall game versus Yakupov is better, compensates for pure stats.
