I see comparisions to Brian Gionta, but I think he has some hints of Marchand to his game as well. He drives to the net with the puck and is not afraid to take a facewash or shoved around a bit. He's extremely quick and possesses a nice shot, but he's more of a pass-to guy than a puck carrier. In my opinion, having him on a line with Galchenyuk - a puck carrier and good passer - and Prust - a guy who can protect Gallagher when he's stirring up a storm - is a brilliant idea by Therrien. It allows Gallagher and Galchenyuk to play their game, while not having to worry too much about being disturbed.
