Just how good exactly is Gallagher going to be?

I don't think so because Gally is so small he doesn't dominate physically. He just has a tremendous work ethic. I'm impressed at how hard he works to get to the inside of D-men. He uses a low centre of gravity to keep on his feet and box bigger D-out. He's not easy to keep on the perimeter that's for sure.
He reminds me of a Pat Verbeek - another small and highly annoying forward to play against. Verbeek lived on the edge of the opposition crease.
I don't see why Gally can't keep it up. Just because he's small doesn't mean he's more prone to injuries than a bigger player. See both Lindros' and Primeau.
