Right now, Gally is getting used to the speed of the NHL, the phyiscal play (as seen by his awesome assist), and helps this team by creating around 3 GREAT scoring chances a game.

He will be invisible for 8 of his 9 minutes on the ice, but that minute where he is dominant, scoring chances are created and it has helped this club gain leads and keep them! Therrien is playing him the way he should be played.
Technically speaking.....

Plekanec and DD plays 3m30 a game more than Galchenyuk. (Even strengh)
Don't play in PK, less PP time than the two. So it might not be too long.

But you're kind of right....depands a lot of his opposition on the ice but some game, he gaves more than 2-3 flashes.

Would like to see him get more PP Time soon.
