If you go back to some of the threads, I also shared the sentiment that Connolly was being mis-used as a checker, but I thought the disappointments were Schwarz, Scheifele, and most of all Pearson (that guy was a bum until the bronze game).

But that's another debate.
Well, my main memories of Gallagher were of him falling over constantly and shooting the puck straight into the chests of opposing goaltenders. In any event though, I doubt we'll see that kind of situation in the forward group this year. A bigger concern is Spott giving Murphy a bigger role than he deserves just because he coaches him in the CHL.
