I just feel if you could put him on a line with future Montreal Canadien teammate Max Pacioretty, it would help him a lot and help him build chemistry with Max. I'm not expecting Gally to be the leading point man or top line centermen for team USA in Sochi but I just think its wrong to not at least give him an invite to the camp with the high-end potential he has.
He'd have to earn the invite by playing well in the NHL.
