Re-sign him to short-term deal. No trade for a center is coming this offseason.
Galchenyuk was included in the trade for his cap hit, and PIT wanted to get rid of him. This is a guy I only want on a one year deal, or a very reasonable short term deal (i.e. 2/5M). I'm cool with adding in some significant bonuses if he hits certain numbers... more power to him if he has finally figured things out, but I'm not holding my breath.
If he can play a middle six, offensive C role, being the yang to JEE's yin, then we put off the Center problem for one more year, or at least allow Guerin to not make a panicky deal for a C. If Dumba's game comes around next year he will be worth a lot more in trade for a C, or Khovanov might be ready, or we might get lucky in the lottery and get Byfield(seriously, it happened to me in Tankathon).
Galchenyuk isn't eligible for that kind of contract
If we are 11th its likely we won't be eligible to even win the lottery.
Or ever. Well, at least a top 6 center anyway.
why would we not be eligible to win the lottery if we are #11?
Sounds like we're going back to the old lottery draft system for this year.
Also sounds like we are eligible to play ourselves into the playoffs under the rumored plan.

Each division plays to set the standings to see who is in the playoffs and what seed.
3 game series for each division.
1 vs 2 to see who wins the division and who is the 2nd in the divison.
3 vs 6 and 4 vs 5 to see who else makes the playoffs from the division.
That would have us in a 3 game series, thus not eligible for the lottery.
