I see him as a solid 2nd line winger with 65-70 pt upside in the NHL. However, even if he doesn't reach his offensive upside, he gives you a solid player who will contribute in all three zones. That is why he is a "safe" pick compared to Grigorenko. I don't know why people don't think Galchenyuk is also a safe pick. To me, the kid competes, has the offensive upside, and has pretty much lived in NA his whole life. I don't see him fleeing to the KHL. I actually don't think Grigorenko will either, and with his upside I wouldn't hesitate to take him over Forsberg (both in the NHL and in fantasy hockey), but I can see why some might feel differently.
