Both Niagra and Sarnia are seriously lacking in forward depth but Strome has far superior players on the ice with him whereas Galchenyuk really has to create everything for his linemates.

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
