During his time in Montreal, forward Alex Galchenyuk often coasted and underwhelmed on the ice.
He did put together a 30 goal season, but it seemed like an anomaly as for the majority of the time he floated around and didn't play defense.
Some Habs' fans often blamed Michel Therrien for it, saying he was being mishandled by the coach, but it's just the type of player he is.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are starting to figure that out.
Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan recently stated that the forward just isn't focused.
“He’s just got to be more focused on just playing the game the right way,” Sullivan said. “Competing on pucks, winning puck battles, being strong on the wall, all the details of the game. If a goal scorer struggles, just based on my experience, part of it is is taking the focus off of the scoring and just trying to focus on what you can control. That’s just how you play the game, how you think the game, how hard you compete on pucks. Just being focused on that next play, then I think that goal will come.”
Galchenyuk has yet to score a goal in nine games with the Penguins.
