People are misled by short sample sizes.
And shootouts happen in about 16.5% of NHL games. Over a 48
game schedule, this results in an average of about 8. Certainly not
1012.

8 SO with that stat we have last years mean Habs would be 17 this years = 1pts total for SO
8 SO with Gally and another good SO player could bring the Habs to a 44 record = 4 pts for SO
which means 3 more points on a 48 game schedule, which is huge to me. Could be the difference between finishing 7 or 11...Playoff or not
edit: Hooooo and BTW, we are just talking about SO, I am sure Gally can help Habs in many others different ways
