I'd say Dumont has a way higher upside then Talbot. Although I like what Maxime brings to the game, he will always be a marginal 4th liner. I could see Dumont becoming a player la Brad Marchand.

Dumont's upside is Talbot. The Marchand comparison is ridiculous.

My guess is that that we will have to at least wait for gio's contract to expire to see gallagher have a chance of breaking the line-up.

Why is it ridiculous? Please explain. Was Marchand much more dominant at the same stage? If so, fine. If not, please give your reasons for your opinion.

Marchand has 1 season of 80 pts in his 4 years of Jr while Gallagher already has 2 in 3 seasons

Gallagher also has two 40+ goals seasons in 3 Jr years to none for Marchand.

He was talking about the Gabriel Dumont/Maxime Talbot/Brad Marchand comparison. Not Gallagher.

I think everyone here would agree that Gallagher has one hell of an upside, comparable to Marchand.

I'd like to see him get around 9 games or so before being sent back to the W, but I just can't see JM doing that.

Any way you look at it, he's been damn impressive. Both him and Beaulieu have certainly left their mark.

Dumont does look like Talbot. A little grittier but not as smart imo.

The only way Gallagher can possibly stick around for 9 games is if Eller is not ready to start the season and there is room for him on the top 9.

Marchand at 20 put up 59 points in the AHL, Dumont put up 18 in 64 games at the same age...so he has a lot way to go to be compared to Marchand...maybe if he is close to 1 PPGM this year then we can consider it reasonable. I think Gallagher is as close to a Marchand clone as I have seen.

Would be nice to see Beaulieu and Gallagher up for 9 games... Maybe if the injuries are severee enough to guys like Eller, White, Markov, then maybe.

Gallagher is definitely impressive, for a guy who's skating was an issue at the draft he sure moves well, he doesn't have Pacioretty's long stride straight line speed but like Marchand he cuts and darts and is strong on the puck, plus he is fearless in driving the net. I think he'll be an NHL regular within 24-27 months.

I'm not a fan of keeping junior aged players even if only 9-10 games unless it's an expectional player(Crosby Stamkos Tavares etc), I'd rather see guys like Diaz, Woywitka, Trotter, Willsie, Blunden and co see time up with the big club as they are guys that could legitimately be NHLers at some point this year.

I would rather see Gallagher and Beaulieu go back to junior and work on their weaknesses and focus on making the WJHC team.

Marchand has a much, much more dominant sense of smell.

I'll be so bold to say that he'll play one more year in the WHL and he'll be with us at least for 40 games in 2012-13.

I dont like comapring the Q with the dub.

The dub is a more rugged league, so I'm even more impressed with gallagher's ability to produce. He's a favourite of mine on the Giants.

I would not be surprised to see Gallagher stick for nine games at the start of the season with the injury to Eller. The other young forwards have been rather unimpressive so far.
