The shots are a good sign, I remember Pacioretty starting his pro career with tons of shots before they started to go in regularly.
Another good sign is Gallagher's health. Throughout juniors and now in the AHL, he's been in the lineup consistently, despite his size and eagerness to play in tough areas. I don't know if this is a testament to his fitness, ability to play or pain or just dumb luck, but it's a very good thing.
I am really big on players that shoot a lot. Really big. I'm no NHL player, but for my whole playing days this was shown to be a good idea for me, and my team mates.
I is also clear that high scoring players in the NHL shoot more than others.
Very glad to hear the Galla is shooting a lot.
