And hopefully they find him some time on the power play which if they do should bring his point totals up to a good level ( pass it to Markov Alex, if you pass the points will come...lol )
if anything, markov pass it to gallch for the one timer! , also pass to subban not markov

Yes, so will I.

I think Galchenyuk has more potential than Seguin. Looks like Gally also has a better work ethic, attitude, and professionalism.

Haven't seen much of any of those three in Seguin after watching him and seeing draft/post game interviews. Although, I really hope he steps it up and tears it up in Dallas, just so the trade looks bad on boston

This is silly, you're setting yourself up for disappointment. I think you underestimate how good Malkin is. Malkin is a 100+ points a year player when healthy.

I think if Galchenyuk becomes a 80+ points a year type player we should all be thrilled. The Jonathan Toews level.

Yeah that's much more (hopefully) realistic. If Galchenyuk can become a 70-80 point player I will be very happy.

Malkin is just unreal.

IMO? We finally have a large skilled CENTER that was more than able to play in the NHL in his draft year... after missing a season of juniors. To play this 20 year need at anything other than CENTER is a utter stupidity after last season.

Bah! Fans and their tempered expectations! Phooey, I say! hahaha.

Galchenyuk is way more skilled than Toews. Galchenyuk is almost without prescedent in terms of lack of junior experience/playing in draft year/production vs. lack of minute & PP time. He's already exceeded my expectations.

I was quite skeptical after the WJCs that he'd even make it to the Habs last year let alone play as well as he did. It's really all up to how much he can improve his first few step acceleration or whatever you call it.

I like Galchenyuk but if I could ever swap him for Toews one for one, its a no brainer imo, cap aside.

I would give Galchenyuk another 2-3 years in the NHL before I would even consider that. Galchenyuk has the potential to be just as good.

Obviously, we all would right now.

But in three years, you will eat your words and you would feel bad.

Why not just put the kids together and see what happens.

Pacioretty-Galchenyuk-Gallagher
a shooter, a playmaker and an all heart drive to the net player

That's exactly what we did but with Eller. And I doubt roles are that arbitrairy.

Basically, because he was younger and there was already a very strong established leadership core of Campbell, Lucic, Bergeron, etc... Seguin was just taken along for the ride and he was always the kid.
Seguin had the chance to learn from Krejci and Bergeron. There are much worse role models in the game. Seguins hockey IQ just wasnt`that good IMO

In Sarnia, Galchenyuk's best games were when he'd skip taking faceoffs but move to the center during the game. A lot of that happened in Montreal as well. He just isn't strong enough on faceoff yet.

I can understand. I just don't want him to turn into some creepy hybrid Hab's experiment... I have seen enough of those

I would agree that Galchenyuk has, what's seems like a better skill package than Toews (what little we've seen of him in game situations comparatively to Toews), but Captain Serious has the definite edge in intangibles: leadership, hockey IQ, doing the little things necessary to help your team win.

It's all conjecture at this point since JT is much more seasoned and has played in every situation imaginable, compared to AG's 48-game stint and 1st-round PO exit. But the potential is most certainly there for Alex to surpass Toews.

Yeah, that's good to see! Him, Eller, Subban and Paccioretty all seem to be taking their summer training very very very seriously. And vets like Markov, Plekanec and Gionta are also showing the way.

And with the additional staff (Lapointe, Brisebois etc.) they hired to take care of our young player's development, things won't get out of hand like it did in the past.

I don't mind if they party from time to time, as long as the hard work is being done, we cannot blame them!

I like Galchenyuk as much as the next guy, but Malkin and Datsyuk are generational talents.
