Having Gally in the lineup means having maybe 6-8 more points at the end of the season, which is HUGEEEEEEEEE, it can make the difference between doing playoff or not.

Just my 2 cents.

edit: But if the goal is to tank for next years, then send him back to Sarnia lol
A case against any player making that much of a difference in the shootout: http://www.arcticicehockey.com/2010/...is-a-crapshoot

Aside from that blog post, IMO one shooter making a 6-8 win difference in shootouts is unreasonable. He would have to score about 10-12 times more than the shooter he would be replacing - so the 3rd choice on shootouts, let's say Plekanec or Gionta. Not going to happen.
