    I haven't seen a lot of either, but this strikes me as a difficult comparison. Kuhn's a budding goalscoring power forward, whereas Galiev's slighter frame means his game is more based on skill and speed. Any particular reason for pairing these two?

    Hard to compare, Galiev's a very handsy player whereas Kuhnhackl's more a sniper with an elite shot.

    Galiev was one of the Pens board draft darlings last year.

    I have not seen much of Kuhnhackel, I really like the way Galiev gains the zone with speed and confidence. He is uber skilled but seems to attack deep, I have been really impressed with him during the memorial cup (admitting its the only time the Sea Dogs have been televised in my area)
     
  9. I'll go with the Kuhn.
