Just how good exactly is Gallagher going to be?

But it definitely could bring on injuries. That's the only way I see his career taking a turn for the worse. He just seems too passionate and motivated to pull an Ovechkin.
I also don't think his energy is the only useful aspect of his game. He could play a little more conservative and still use his great speed, shot and stick handling to be an effective top 6 winger.
It's all about staying healthy when talking "long term" with Gallagher IMO.
Not my point.
I believe what Cherry meant is that players who dominate BECAUSE they are physically dominant cannot uphold the same level of play for very long. Their body simply cannot take it as they get older.
The source of your domination has an expiration date, effectively.
