    I agree, we should trade him for Grimaldi. CAN you imagine our new super smurf line
    Grimaldi-Gomez-Gionta

    Why are they limiting his ice time anyway?

    Is he that bad defensively?

    Housley needs to realize hes first line aint working,give Galchenyuk one of Grimaldi or Gaudreau or put him center on the second line so he can create some offense.Not worried about that game tho i know Alex will bounce back against canada on Sunday if Phil gives him the chance 2

    Housley is rolling his lines 1-2-3-4.

    It may be because this was a 2nd game in 2 nights. I dunno.

    If he was rolling his lines, wouldn't he be on the ice for 15 minutes and not 10 minutes?

    They took quite a few penalties and Galchenyuk got no PK time.

    If he gets half the PP time and none of the PK time, and a quarter of the ES time, he should come out at around 15 minutes.

    States took some bad penalties yes but in the 3rd period and being down by a goal u HAVE to play ur best players over and over again.Housley was still rolling hes 4 lines like if we were winning.Not impressed at all by the coaching so far,unlike NHL coaches he doesnt adjust through the game and keeps the same lines evendoh they're not creating ne thing

    The 9 minute mark was reported by just 1 poster. I find it hard to believe, he clearly was closer to 15 from my estimation watching it.

    Hopefully Crimson updates the TOI soon.

    I forget who posted it, but it said Gally is 17th on the team in ice time over the 2 games.

    I'd say Gally played around 13 minutes.

    Need to move him to center. All of these other scrubs have no idea how to enter the zone.

    The Grimaldi-Miller-Gaudreau line seems to be getting a lot of icetime as well as the fourth line at ES.

    Doesn't make a lot of sense seeing as their top line hasn't really produced anything this tournament yet including against Germany. Here's hoping they don't break out against Canada *knocks on wood*.

    Gally actually looked good for the first part of the game, but then sort of seemed to give up in the third. Or rather, was waiting at the blueline for his teammates to dig the puck out from the boards and start the breakout (which they were largely incapable of doing). I don't know if he was supposed to go back and help?

    Some guy on TSN's That's Hockey in Vancouver was ripping on Phil Housley for not playing Gally enough. He said the zamboni had as much ice time as Gally and if the USA wants to win the tournament he needs to play the guy who's had like 29 points in his last 11 games more.

    He's still 44% on his team production thus far with 3rd line minutes.

    There really is no harm in playing him on the second PK unit, or on the point for the second PP wave. He can do so much more and the extra TOI will help him control the flow of the game more.

    Video of it: http://video.tsn.ca/?dl=main/vhSearch=Galchenyuk/1/0/834438/clip/534

    One thing to keep in mind from today:That had to be the highest level of competition Galchenyuk has ever faced and it showed. It was a big step up. Even an OHL powerhouse like London isn't at that level, especially when you consider Russia is playing at home. Several players on Team Russia play in the KHL, even if it's just a few minutes a game.

    Thanks. I can't see the video for some reason but I hope I got what he said somewhat correct. :)

    Galchenyuk's TOI was 15:46 according to CrimsonSkorpion, and not 9:32 like I said in another thread.
