Both are great prospects but it is easy to suggest that there would be a ten point swing for both players in the opposite circumstances.
Not necessarily. Back in 10/11 Galchenyuk had Yakupov on his wing and Strome still outscored him. Granted he's a year older, but I don't see how you can say with certainty that AG would be outperforming Strome if they switched teams.
2010/11(Galchenyuk's last full season):
Alex Galchenyuk: 68 games: 31G - 52A - 83P
Ryan Strome: 65 games: 33G - 73A - 106P
