It’s hard to say what the price is for Alex Galchenyuk. The Canadiens have absolutely destroyed his confidence and driven his trade value to an all-time low. That being said, Galchenyuk is still only 23 and has already scored 30 goals in a season. The Canadiens could use that as the reason to keep their asking price high. However, we all know that Marc Bergevin is certainly vulnerable to be taken advantage of in any trade. Flash “grit” and “Cup experience” in his face, and you just might walk away with Alex Galchenyuk for Carl Hagelin and Ian Cole.
In all seriousness, if Galchenyuk is available at a decent price, the Penguins should be all over it. He is the forward equivalent of Justin Schultz in Edmonton, but even more talented. His ceiling is unbelievably high, and the reduced price you pay to get him is almost certainly going to be worth it.
