And I think he should make the team next year. But it all depends if we still have one of Gionta/Gomez/Cammelleri next year. But I think he is gritty enough to play on a fourth line and still produce :

White-Gaustad-Gallagher ...

Only t0 get him started in the NHL.
I dunno if I would compare him to Marchand, Gallagher seems like a work boots kind of guy while marchand is much fancier (and dirty as ****). If I compare him to anyone it might be a less talented Koivu or Taylor Hall without the elite skills. They all have that crazy drive to compete and reckless play style, Gallagher doesn't have Koivus unreal vision and passing or Halls sheer dominance but he always makes something happen.
