Dominik Kahun and Alex Galchenyuk are trending in two different directions

Dominik Kahun and Alex Galchenyuk were two of the most significant additions to the Pittsburgh Penguins lineup over the summer, and from the moment they arrived there seemed to be two very different sets of expectations for them.

Galchenyuk arrived by way of the Phil Kessel trade to Arizona, and there seemed to be reasonably high hopes that he could slide into Kessel’s spot in the lineup and replace most — if not all — of the production that was going out the door. The reviews in training camp about the Evgeni Malkin-Galchenyuk duo were extraordinarily high.
