This is Therrien though so I fully expect Galchenyuk to continue playing wing and when he makes a mistake, get benched for an entire period or more.
Everybody knows that he'll end up a star center. But he's not ready. Of all habs' young players, he's the one who has the more difficulties at taking the puck out of the d-zone. Bad decisions and 1/2 second too slow in execution. You can't do that when your a center as your responsibilities in your own zone are bigger.

It'll come in time. 12-18 months I would say.
