Because Gallagher has been potting them like mad when they are on the ice together and that's inevitably going to cool off, if for no other reason than they are not the reincarnation of Gretzky-Kurri. They've produced at a far faster rate than Stamkos-St. Louis or Sedin-Sedin over a short period of time, regression is inevitable.

Now Galchenuyk's personal goal scoring rate can be expected to go up based on his 7.4%, but PDO is about 5 on 5 +/-. Essentially, Galchenyuk has been playing better than a 10 goals per 82 games player but not as good as a guy you can expect to go +46 in 82 games.
