I wouldn't give much credit to Therrien for Crosby or Malkin, those guys would have developed into the same players under Cunneyworth. I'm sure Therrien gave them some good pointers, and helped, that's his job, but I'm not gonna credit him for their development. Those players are so easy to develop, they're exceptional talent.
As for Galchenyuk, ya, there's no reason for him to get 20min of ice time. But he could get a couple more minutes, especially on the PP where his skill set is a clear advantage.
I totally concur,a few cracks on the PP to see what he can do will not sidetrack his development.Yes MT knows how to bring rookies along but give Gally 27 a shot or two,he might even score a goal or two.
