Dont throw the baby out with the bath water.
If the Sting lose Gally, they still have to deal with the fact that Brodie Barrick is out for 3-5 more weeks, and JP Anderson is out indefinitely as of right now. Sure the team is winning right now, but to consistently stay at this level for a long period of time without your best player, and goaltending in the shape it is in, would take almost a miracle.
Most of the guys that are the reason for their success to this date will not be back on the team. With Galchenyuk and JP on the team (and healthy), the Sting have the ability to add another top 4 dman, and another top 6 forward and seriously contend for an OHL title this year. If Gally is gone, there are so many other question marks right now that it would make more sense to sell off players and build for the next 2-3 years rather than be content with making the playoffs this year and bowing out after 1 round.
