    Well sure, cause every puck that crossed the line was called back by the refs.

    Galchenyuk was at centre in the third.

    Against Buf tomorrow #27 has to be given keys to 1C (assuming Drouin isn’t back) and let him roll with it.

    It would also help if he had good line-mates.

    Only after we went down 2-0 if I'm not mistaking, and we scored a goal with that combo.

    I agree, but it should have been done yesterday too.

    It started at 1-0.

    We also scored a goal with his first period combo.

    I agree he should be at centrw though

    They are moving him to centre... but its slow and its on their timeline... injuries be damned.

    Pierre lebrun is already saying they were giving him the same work on defensive responsibility at centre as drouin was getting before drouins injury. They are starting to give him that d responsibilty. Its going to be slower than we as fans want though.

    I don't know about that, Plekanec had his share of shitty linemates over the years but he's guaranteed a center spot on one of the top 3 lines. Max is always our best scorer so we're always trying to get him going but you can't argue that Danault and Shaw are the best forwards available either.

    I don't know why it's always Galchenyuk getting the shaft, especially when he's playing well.

    Nope : http://www.nhl.com/stats/shiftcharts?id=2017020237

    Actually they only had one shift with Galchenyuk at center, and it was with 5 minutes left when Hudon scored the 2nd disallowed goal.

    Only reason I disagree, Koivu & Staal would’ve eaten Galchenyuk alive, easier to getaway with miscues vs Eichel & ROR and a much porous D corps.

    I do agree with BKerr, think this is all part of a plan on Julien’s part to slowly cultivate Galchenyuk into a C by end of the year.

    He had no miscues yesterday. He had an incredible game. He looks awesome right now.

    Wait what?? Eichel and ROR are better than Koivu and Staal. If you're only going about FO%, ROR is better than all of them.

    I give you the porous D but Galchenyuk had no problem cutting through Minny's defense yesterday.

    Finally, it was a home game, Julien had the latest change.

    Eichel’s compete level is sub-par on most shifts, it’s what’s keeping him from going from good to excellent - Eichel is also defensively low IQ. Koivu & Stall are very defensively responsible.
