Sarnia didn't seem to be that great at the start, seems that him, Goldobin a few others took care of that...but till when and how far? Would be interesting to know, as the go-to-guy, where he can bring his team that everybody thought would be a seller and is now a buyer. Finish the job you started. He will be a Habs in a full season next year.

And actually, in the category of "stupid point" please don't mention it...I already did.....less Gally means more chances to finish low in the standings....THIS IS THE 2013 DRAFT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT!!!!!
It couldn't hurt for him to have another off season of training to prepare for the NHL. He is relatively strong for a junior player but any gains made would help protect him at the next level. A little improvement in his skating would also be nice to see......

The risks outweigh the rewards imo at this point in having him join the big club. Let him finish his season in junior and come to camp in September so he can battle for a roster spot with a full slate of pre-season games. As excited as some people are to see him in Montreal, I believe this is the correct course of action. He should make the team based on merit and to do so he will have to beat out incumbents. In order to do so it will require a pre-season, which there won't be any time for if play resumes later this month.
