We already have to cover Desharnais' line as it is, with a quite weak roster wingers-wise.
If we also have to protect Galchenyuk with his assignments, we might as well play them together. Plekanec and Eller can then also have competent wingers alongside them, and you can ice 3 competitive lines, instead of a strong one and the two other struggling.

Anyway, i dont think that the situation is really great for a rookie, at least when it comes to the judgment of his abilities, because of the lack of pre-season and the lockout, the first games are going to be special and not really representative, and 5 games is not enough to really find how ready he is.
