1. Hes a Center
2. He won't run to Russia(hes American)
3. from most reports I've seen or heard of he seems more complete than Grig.

The Grigo/Galchenyuk battle remings me a lot of the Strome vs Huberdeau threads last year. To me, one is just fundamentally more sound (being Grigo and Huberdeau respectively) no matter what the stats/media hype attempt to show, especially when trying to project them at the NHL level.
