Because they see him as a grinder if he ever makes the big boy club. They don't want to groom him as a first liner, they want him to be a 34rd-4th line pest who play on both ends.

Can you imagine when Galchenyuk gets top line minutes and top line partners and he still has a few years before he can drink in the states. Seems like he is quietly producing offensively.

Seems like a loss for everyone involved.

We have 5 players 5'9 or smaller, which is more than the entire Western Conference (almost a quarter of our payroll). Bergevin signed: Briere, Desharnais, Bouillon (9 million) The ghost is responsible for: Gallagher and Gionta (5.685 million) hmmmm

No not even a little, really just inquisitive. Unfortunately written word doesn't convey such a thing. Everyone writes the 'first' business. it's good that it makes people happy to be first, just confuses me.

Nice illustration. I was kind of alluding to that in my comment, but this makes it much more clear. Bravo I think his goals haven't been pretty enough either ... scoring a goal is scoring a goal non?

I have a lot more than two, and I never even try. I don't get the clamoring for such a thing. Seems like 'first' isn't even a real comment. I don't begrudge you if it makes you happy, please be happy. I just don't get it.

I love the Larry Brooks article on the loss of Brandon Prust. Like the comment that Travis Moen is the kind of player who is great on a wining team, not so useful on a team that is behind. Briere is putting goals in given his time on ice, and not causing problems when he plays little. This is helpful, and it doesn't matter if the goals are coming off of his butt. I'm ready to see Galchenyuk on the first like with ... We could take a step up with two killer lines working here soon. As crazy as it was to break up Eller, Gallgaher, Galchenyuk, it could result in 2 and maybe three strong lines injected with youth. I think Eller, Bournival, and Briere could be good too

Our olympic hockey representatives: Locks - Budaj - Slovakia Diaz - Switzerland Emelin - Russia Markov - Russia Plekanek - Czech Pacioretty - US Price - Canada Bubbles - Subban - Canada Galchenyuk - US That Subban is on the bubble is crazy. Anyhow is that about it? Does Galchenyuk make it? I hope so. It seems like a great move for him, the US, and the Canadiens if he does. Love to see him get on the line with Pleks and Gio for a few weeks and get red hot.

I love your avatar. Isn't it funny that 'the monstre' is having such a great season, and all of the hoops Toronto jumps through with goalies. Big markets eat their own. I think we are lucky Price seems to have the metal to withstand Montreal.
