1 goal in 8 mins. Can we expect 3 goals in 24 mins in the future?

If he gets more than 10 minutes on ice.. he busts.

Thank you, Therrien.

There have been lots of penalties the last 3 games. His ice time seems pretty much linked to the games being played 5 on 5, unfortunately.

Yeah, a guy with those hands, vision and shot would be terrible on the pp. Thank God Therrien knows this.

10+ minutes? Woah woah woah, let's not get crazy here. That extra minute and a half could ruin the kid's entire career.

Why is he playing less than Dumont? I just don't get it. Is he that bad defensively?

Therrien on Galchenyuk's limited ice time :He absolutely wanted to match Plekanec's line with Stamkos which was eating minutes.

Therrien on the PP : No time praticing it with the compressed schedule (perhaps the reason why he ain't putting Galchenyuk's on the PP...?)

Ok for the line matchs eating up Galchenyuk's minute... but i still don't buy/get why he can't get 2nd PP minutes.

I think this kid's going to be decent. A good 3rd line checker at least.

I don't disagree, I want him on the PP too aside from the brief cameo.

Just saying the huge amount of penalties in our games the last 3 is probably the main reason why his TOI has dipped since he's not a regular on either unit. Tonight, 15 minutes of this game was PP time (combined for both teams). Last night, it was 16 minutes. Against Philly, it was 19 minutes.

Cut that in half...and Galchenyuk is probably playing 3-4 minutes more per game, which puts him in his customary 12-13 minutes per game he's had most of this season.

I think he's having a Stamkos-like rookie year. Slow start, strong finish which will make his rookie season look "so-so" on paper, but he'll play at this pace for 82 games next year.

Just a hunch, but I can see him get 70 points next year.

No worries. The moment of truth will come in the PO. If we lose the first game, and especially if we drop the first two, changes will have to be made. And more and more I think Habs are one team that could benefit from our rookies in the PO. Young legs, boundless energy go a long way in the PO.

Chuckie
Gally
And yes, even Dumont, who I've always liked.

Watch out, not many teams are entering the PO with such rookie quality. This is a bit of a secret weapon for us.

If two or three of DD, Ryder, Gio, Moen and and Bourque don't step up fast, and I mean game 1, they will lose time to the rookies in the PO.

Plekanec playing 19 minutes a game, I don't have any issue. But Therrien should use Eller, both Gally way more and reduced Gionta/Bourque to the 13-14 minutes. Nothing happen with them lately, and Pacioretty could use an extra minute or two a game.
Gionta and Bourque both play on the Penalty kill. Gionta also plays on the PP. They pretty much all play the same time on 5v5.

He never starts Eller's line in the D-Zone, it's always either Halpern/Plekanec. So either he sends them on the fly or in an offensive zone faceoff.

He's not physically mature at 19. At 22, if they keep him alive, he will destroy. You have to chew slowly once you have the good stuff! MT knows this and should you.

Too fast too soon has undone many a youth.
