Normally, I would strongly disagree with you, but Galchenyuk is a special case. He has so many ties to the US, and lived there for so many years as a kid, that he would likely be considered an exception to the rule. The only other Russian I can think of who was a similar prospect with ties to the US when he was growing up is Viktor Tikhonov, and he plays in the KHL.
