If Alex is all what he can be, well Gallagher get sent down in a couple of week and he gets the feeling of the NHL, learning the ropes with the big boys and to much suffering in his development

But if they both are still there in 2-3 weeks, than it might become a problem....
Yeah I don't see a big deal, better to have more bodies around. Let them have a first hand look at Gallagher and maybe give him a game or two. Nothing says Galchenyuk has to play the first 5 games of the season, maybe space it out over 3 weeks. Give them both 5 games then make a call(5 games has no impact on Gallagher's contractual status though). Nokelainen's injury gives them 2-3 weeks to get a look at those two.
