Gallagher scored 15 goals in the regular season. 10 from goal mouth plays. 12 of 17 if you count the playoffs.

The guy you praise and the guy you can stand got essentially the same amount of goals from playing around the net. The main difference is Gallagher actively fights for space while Gionta slips into open areas next to the net.
Nobody's saying that Gionta is a bad player... he just isn't right on this team. We've got too many small forwards.
