I don't think any of us have fully grasped what we have on our hands yet. Right now we're all rooting for him to become the player we envision him to be but with extreme cautious optimism and reservation. I constantly have to put things in perspective for myself.
Very well said, ..i LOVE the kid, but me too i have to bring myself back down to earth sometimes only because hes not really the next crosby or anything, putting up 120 points
i think hes a given to be a 80 point player, its evident whenever he gets steady PP time he'll always be good for a point a game,especially next year
if he ever DOES reach 100 points? wow, GREAT, never before seen from a habs in my life, but time will tell on that one, but we just have to remind ourselves of what we truly have here and its great to watch, he really helps our team out in more ways than just offense, he rly does a decent job on our own zone as well
Love the way he is playing and most importantely love the way he is being used by the coaching staff. We've never seen this before from the coaching staff with young players and first mistake they would usually get benched and left aside
I'm not betting against Galchenyuk. If there's one thing I like most about him, it's his ability to transition from adapting to a certain situation to improving to dominating at a very quick pace.
The scary thing is we're not even using him to the extent most teams showcase their star rookies. He is this good with limited ice time. That speaks volumes for his potential. I'd be shocked if he is not in contendership for the Calder.
I love Carey Price but I'm still one of the few people on this board that maintains that we should have kept Halak and drafted Kopitar that year based on our need for a top line center. However, because we have Galchenyuk, who will most likely be as good as or better than Kopitar, I'm really liking the way things are shaping up.
