Bring on some more size & muscle to play on the 4th line and on D
I'd be interested in knowing how much of Gallagher you've actually seen to say that. I'm not saying he's ready, but he was one of the last cuts last year, had a good year on a weak Bulldog's team, and is a really hard worker at both ends of the rink. I think he should at least be given a chance.
We've got enough 'size & muscle' on our other bottom 6 line.
Armstrong, Prust, White, and Moen are good enough hockey players to form a 'third line' and getting fairly tough minutes.
Then, giving easier minutes to a rookie line with some really good offensive potential and who aren't crap defensively either, I think could work out well (both for this year and in long-term development. You can't tell me that Galchenyuk having Prust on his wing is going to help him out much offensively).
