This is my concern with him. Which isn't a bad thing really, because he was very effective last year, but not the kind of player that will make or break you by himself. Also, there's definitely reasons to be concerned about his durability, considering his playing style.

Habs fans (well, hockey fans in general) tend to overrated good but not great players who play with a lot of heart. I remember hearing Gorges called untouchable and the core of this team before too.

I think Gallagher has a good future ahead of him, hopefully with the Habs, but he's far from untouchable, especially not in a top 6 role. And really, this team should be looking at having 3 two-way lines going forward anyway.
