The kid seems like the real deal and I love his desire to drive the net when hes on a rush. he will learn its almost impossible at times to deke 2 dman but i love his push.. kid will be a great one

It's just part of the ebbs and flows of the game. Look at Ovechkin's career...starts crazy good...big slump for a few years...and now is a better player than he has ever been, developing real leadership and all around contribution to his team. Point of that comparison is I think that the more talented the player the more drastic the ups and downs are and big playoff runs are the perfect opportunity to breakout.

Can't wait for puck drop on Thursday Night!!!!
Very relieved to see this post. I saw the thread title and was afraid that Galchenyuk had become the drummer for Spinal Tap.

Seriously, Ottawa's good defensive system won't make it easy for Galchenyuk to explode. He'll continue to get better, but any big leaps this season might have to wait for the second round.

Tyler Seguin didn't explode in the POs that year. He was a healthy scratch until the TB series. He had two great first games with 6 pts, then he disappeared again scoring 1 assist in the 11 other games with his ice time dropping as low as 6:21.
He wasn't an important piece of the puzzle for the Bruins.

It's as if I say A.Kost really stepped up in the POs for us in 09-10 when we reached the ECF, but really, like Seguin, he only played well in the first two games with 5 pts, and then kinda went missing.

Galchenyuk went through a little funk this year that lasted for 14 games. But he finishes with 27 pts in 48 gp (slightly better pace than the one of Seguin in his rookie POs), on a hot streak, and on one of the best 3rd lines heading into the POs.
If you hope he explodes, then he would have to produce even more, which would truly be incredible for a rookie. But don't bet on it.
Be happy if he can maintain his performance.

Speaking of explosion, I know we've had Galchenyuk for a while, and I should be able to control myself by now, and this shouldn't still be happening, but I can't help it when I watch him play...



Every game I experience the Galchenyuk explosion.

I think his wrister will find the back of the net this series. I can't wait to see him just rip it.

Chucky is gonna be a great one guys, the development process is moving along quite nicely...obviously still very early in his career but he is going to be special...kinda makes us all forget about last year!

I think the KID line is gonna be key in the playoffs. Im not expecting much out of desharnais he is on a bad slump. I really hope plekanec can prove himself as a playoff performer because he hasn't at this point.

I'm pretty sure he will be the first one to sit if we lose 2 games in a row. Just like Julien sat Seguin in the playoffs.

Jesus Christ, why even bring this up?

And if 2 losses means Galchenyuk sits for Colby freaking Armstrong or someone like that, we don't deserve to win this series.

hmmmm no. bad exemple. Ovie has no work ethic outside the rink and his slump is a direct result of that.

The Senators were the only team Galchenyuk wasn't able to get a point against during the season.
