The thing about Gallagher is that he's always looking to get better. His conditioning and strength are awesome, and you can tell he's a very intelligent person. That being said, he'll always be small. The only difference is that there is no reason to think he can't adapt his game. Sure, he's going all out now, but IF he does start to realize that he can't play that game anymore, his skating, puck handling, shot and hockey IQ can allow him to succeed, albeit in a different way.

At this point, I'm expecting him to be a steady 20ish goalscorer who can create chances and provide a distraction on the ice. People tend to freak out about his size, but he will adapt in time, and I think whether he has to play a softer game is not an issue given his skill. Only time will tell, but I don't think he's in as much trouble as some want to claim.
