    Let’s see how he does. I think chances are slim that he’s back here next year, but if he does well and wants to stay for a year for cheap, I could see Guerin entertaining it. One of those players who has the skill but never figured out how to use it.

    f*** it. I officially have zero expectations, good or bad. Let's just see what happens.

    Put him in a position to shoot and let him go.

    About hockey specifically or life in general?

    The latter. I am rarely disappointed.

    He has nothing to loose and everything to gain. Wish Zuccarello felt the same.

    I don't care if he is 40 percent on the faceoff and lets in a goal or two a game.

    I want to see him at center. With Fiala.

    Regardless if his game is dumpster fire bad in his own end, his shot is a cannon and his wrister is balls to the wall good.

    But, he seems to be worse at skating after his injury and he was getting no ice time.

    Zero expectations. I like one timer blasts on the PP though.

    I see his skating style is unusual - is he reputed to be fast?

    No, I think he's reputed to skate like a hunchback.

    He looked like he'd benefit from a couple of practices.

    I haven’t seen a player that invisible since Zuccarello was also that invisible

    Didn't seem noticeable in a good or bad way. We'll see what happens in the next five games before drawing any conclusions.

    Yeah it's been 0 nights since Zuccarello was as invisible as Galchenyuk was tonight

    Galchenyuk kinda has an excuse though. Would like to see Bruce not pull the plug on him as quickly as he does with Donato.

    I saw a nice one-timer, a nice pass, and a nice back check to prevent a 2 on 1. Not entirely invisible

    Started pretty strong and kind of faded as the game went on, as the whole line did.

    I don't think that's going to be an effective line and I don't think it's necessarily the best place for Galchenyuk to succeed if that's what we're hoping for.

    He wasn't great and wasn't awful for his first game. I'll take it for a guy who basically got off the plane and walked into the locker room and was put with 2 guys he's never played with.

    If he's a cap dump here to leads the Wild to draft gold, it's the perfect role - otherwise, hard to say after a single game, but yeah, not often Kunin has such a quiet game.

    If I wasn't LOOKING for him on the ice -- I literally wouldn't have noticed he dressed for the game.

    Don't shoot the guy after one game, he had a hectic day and was a bit nervous of course.

    Also that line played less than normal because special teams had a lot to do.

    Was not great, not bad as most said. His line was pretty invisible for the most part. See what he does next game.

    Well Chucky had 0 playing time with either Kunin or Zucc, and Kunin and Zucc haven't really had much time together. So invisible is probably isn't really a bad thing.
