Loved his play on the Eller goal, going to the net and bringing his man with him, putting three Canes for two Habs on the right side, opening up Eller on the left.

Lately he's just been quietly good. I like that. It's not easy to be good while not flashy especially with the spotlight on him.

LOL that's awesome. I don't think it's accurate though.

Seems like expectations here are mostly subdued.

I'm in that group.

Kid has a long way to go.

Love what I see so far though.

"Chuckie" has been playing fantastic lately and doesn't need the points to validate his great play. I know it was tongue in cheek though.

Really wish he WOULD put up some points though with Eller at the top of his game and the only.. euh.. other good player on his line... he should be getting more points.

I thought there's been a few instances this season where Chucky should have gotten an assist but didn't, usually because the puck bounced on an opposing stick, but in many cases he still deserved the assist.

The floodgates will open soon, he's bound to get points if he keeps playing with Eller who's on fire right now. In any case, even if he's not getting points, he's playing well and is adapting very well to the NHL. He probably won't win the Calder but that's alright, we have Gally for that.

There's nothing wrong with Galchenyuk. He's 18 and is leading the team in +/-. He's defensively sound and can score. Having him and Gallagher in the lineup makes the team better and give more depth. And we Bourque and Prust returns, I scratch Armstrong, and White.

He's 3rd in +/- with 8 (Prust leads with 13, Gallagher has 9).

And to be fair, he was playing very sheltered minutes for most of the season.

He's a great play maker is the 1st thing i notice. Knows where to put the puck and has good instincts. Second are his soft hands and quick release. 3rd, it's his his fast jump --which is there at times, and not there other times.

He reminds me of Mario when I see him skating with the puck.

Once he actually starts hitting the net, his points will start to rack up. His wrister is going to be top tier for years.

I see a bit of Foresberg by the way he protects the puck, and his quick release.

Malkin, Mario, Gaborik, Dastsuk, Forsberg

Ok so basically he's a mix of Howe and Gretzky

Except Malkin had 33 goals and 52 assists in his rookie season.

Galchenyuk will be good, really good.. but a lot of you are overrating him a bit, no?

He has average size (big for the Habs I guess ), decent speed, good stick handling and hockey IQ. I don't think he is using his shot well at all so far. Out of his 3 goals, one was a tip in, one was a tap in at the crease and one bounced in after some nice moves to get it to the net.

I can't wait to see him roof it top corner. Came close the other night at the end of the game.

I think once he gets his 1st traditional sniper goal more will follow quickly.

Malkin was also 2 years older.

I think Galchenyuk look stressed out there to not make any mistake so he rush his decision making a bit.

I think he has elite on ice vision and offensive abilities but he needs to work on his strenght and puck possesion to buy him a second or two with the puck and becoming more efficient with his playmaking style.

Thats why I said Gally is playing like Malkin, I didn't said he was as good as Malkin , BUT I hope so

Malkin was one year older, but still, rookie season is a rookie season in the NHL.

I agree with everything you said though.
