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!!!!!
Fully agreed 100%...but again, if he shows he's ready at camp. How can you really justify sending him back?
This is not like we're talking about an obscur 5th round pick who impresses at camp (see Gallagher last yaer). There's a reason why Gally went 3rd overall despite missing an entire year.
Obviously the Habs feel he has what it takes to possibly make the team, hence why he'll be given an opportunity to challenge for a spot.
Bringing Sarnia deep in the playoffs is great, but learning how to be a pro in the NHL is even better IMO.
This is all premature though, first thing he needs to do is come to the Habs camp and show he's not only ready for the NHL, but show that he can make the team better. If he does that, then there's no scenario IMO, that would justify sending him back down.
