I thought he was captain. He seems to be sporting only an A,did I see that right?

Glad to see him & Bournival off to hot starts. Hopefully they both make the WJ this year.

We're lucky to have Gallagher. We got him late in the draft and he's an absolute beast.

He could turn out into a Marchand minus the puke attitude.

Maybe you're confusing him with Tinordi, who was named Captain of the Knights?

It's not shocking they've all shown up in the CHL playing at a high level.
hmmm... well said!

He was captain for a few games for Vancouver in pre-season or something but then some overager came back to the team and is captain. I saw Gallagher with the C on one of the game summaries too.

Hopefully Gally plays so good in junior that he turns pro this season and plays some in Hamilton, then fights at camp for a spot again.

He's going to need a year or two in the AHL to gain some weight, but right around when Gio is slowing down, Gallagher will be able to come in and take his place as the mighty midget. It's really nice to see that we have some legitimate top-six prospects developing in the right time frame to replace the top-six we have right now.

Gallagher has to work on speed, leg strength from what I saw. A choppy stride that needs to be lengthened a bit.

Liked Bournivals wheels but he needs to step up stats this year. Last year, he didnt improve much over the prior year. Given you draft for expected improvement, that was disappointing ( like the lousy stats Leblanc had last year ).

Don't we have until Jan to bring him back up if we want him though?
no, once a player is returned to junior he is ineligible to come up except for emergency recall.

I'm hoping this kid turns into our forward version of Subban.

To be fair though nobody on the team is a minus player and they have plenty of higher plus ratings. Also two D who are also 6'7" aside from Tinordi... this team must be pretty physical
It should be illegal giving a roster like that to Dale Hunter.

I read it noted by obsevers that his speed has greatly improved over the last year. So it probably used to be a problem but he fixed it. Which really says a lot about the young man; he takes note and he works hard.

And I'm sure he'll continue to work on those areas as it seems to be (other than a sudden growth spurt to 6ft) the only real weaknesses to his game. We all wanted him to go down and Dominate the WHL (so far....check) now if he makes the WJC team I really feel that his progression will be that much quicker (one season in the AHL vice two) before he joins the NHL in a scoring line role (if the team keeps a top 9 philosiphy)

You guys think that Gallagher and Bournival are now ahead of Leblanc?

I wouldn't say that, myself, but they've played their way into the conversation.

Gallagher is definitely ahead of Leblanc in terms of offensive potential.

Nygren.... That's impressive.

Leblanc is a two-way forward. Looks like a Rich Peverley type guy.

I hope that when the Habs sign Gallagher and eventually bring him up he does as well as The Nose.

DD - Eller - ??
Bournival - Leblanc - Gallagher

Markov - Yemelin
Beaulieu - PK
Tinordi - Gorges

Price
Rambo

Boucher
