I think they see him as a secondary player and Housley is being loyal to the older players who have been part of the US program since they started playing. Galy is secondary only that he doesn't seem to be one of "them" and he's 18. This was made more apparent by cutting Boucher. Had the US had the foresight to put them on a line together as a real 2nd or 1st, I think we'd be seeing a different Gally and dare I say, one with even more points.
Your offensive game plan needs to revolve around your best player. This is the equivalent of Dan Bylsma using Jordan Staal over Sidney Crosby. Grimaldi has been atrocious.

They should have built team US around Galchenyuk at forward, and that meant bringing in Reid Boucher as well.

It's going to cost them dearly, especially if Housley doesn't wake up.
