Of course he should win easily with that.

Are you kidding? Gallagher has been nothing short of terrific and he owes his success to his style of play. He plays with a team that isn't big and can't back him up. He goes to the dirty areas and wins puck battles against guys 50-60lbs heavier and sometimes half a foot taller than he is. He crashes the net, he forechecks like a monster and is a real black hole for opponents aggression. Gallagher would have done that anywhere. That style of play is what made him successful, not his teammates. Huberdeau would have gotten around the same amount of points playing on MTL's 3rd line. 25-30.
