The history of championship teams in the NHL is enough to validate my comment.

The man can transition seamlessly between the two positions, I think you're over stating the importance of him playing center this tournament.
We could be looking at a situation where is Galchenyuk not playing center for a long period of time if he's not centering a line at the WJC. We are talking years here.

He's been on the wing since mid-October or so... chances are strong he finishes the year on the wing in Sarnia and/or he's possibly a winger as a NHL rookie like many here want, whenever that is (this year or next season). So already, that's possibly 2 seasons.

Throw in barely playing it last year due to injury...and you are looking at potentially 3 seasons of not playing center regularly.

I can just see the conversation in 2-3 years being ''He's doing really well on the wing, why should we move him to center now? He's barely played it recently anyway.''
