Watch him get picked up on waivers.

Why would Gallgher get picked up on waivers? He isn't waiver eligible for 3 years(or 2015-2016).

My bad, thought I had read that he could get picked up... Must've been St-Denis.

Sorry 'bout that :S

Yeah but that means they were planning on sending him down before his game last night. They must've been impressed by his play in the scrimmage.

The Canadiens staff would be quite incompetent to take this risk. I'm pretty sure he's not eligible.

So I guess Gally will center Bourque and Gionta?

Eller stays on the third line?

Bruins tried to sign him, that is the point. If you want to argue semantics go ahead.
If you think PK was sheltered by playing with the 2nd best D on the team....against the top offensive threats of the other team, then you have a blind spot for PK. That is like saying Shea Weber was sheltered by playing with Ryan Suter. The #1 plays with the #2.

Regarding Kaberle, you originally said the Bruins tried to resign him. I asked how you could state that, was there any documentation of it. Just repeating it does not make it any more supported by fact.

Listen, I hope Kaberle is awesome this year. He clearly has not been for around 2 full seasons. My fingers are crossed for a turn around.

If Plekanec is healthy and both Gallies are in the lineup, I'm guessing Armstrong will start in the press box?

Or Prust plays centre and White is in the pressbox, I'd be shocked to not see Armstrong tomorrow since MT loves him and its a big game against his old team.

I doubt they scratch Armstrong to play Gallagher. I think Gallagher only plays if Plekanec can't.

Agree with this. Gallagher is likely only kept as insurance because Plekanec is likely a gameday decision.

Chiarelli even says in the article taht they wanted him back but obviously didn't divulge numbers.

If Pleks is out, I'd rather have an Armstrong - Dumont - White line than Armstrong - White - Gallagher line. I am not a believer in White as a NHL center at all.

Dumont has completely outplayed and produced Gallagher in recent weeks in the AHL too. It's Dumont's 3rd AHL year, while Gallagher is a rookie. This is comparable to the rushing of Leblanc to the NHL to barely play last year.

This decision is puzzling from a roster standpoint and a development standpoint. Gallagher better only be here for a few days until Plekanec is healthy enough to play.

Are the reports stating Pleks is definitely out for tomorrow night or is this HF speculation?

They were still undecided. They had to waive Blunden yesterday in case he didn't make the team.

Carey Price n'est pas de l'entraînement ce matin. Plekanec est du groupe toutefois.

From the few games I've seen Gallagher play this year I am not surprised he made the team. Smart kid on the ice. Does everything well with and without the puck. Always like seeing the little guy make it. Usually they are extremely hard workers.

For those who saw the intrasquad last night, how did Commordore look? I've always liked him as a personality and he seems like a good team guy. I'm rooting for him a bit.

Gallagher making the team is a huge surprise to me. I know he had a great camp but I believed their plan was to send him back to Hamilton no matter what. Congratulations to him.

100% agree with this. When I watch BGally play, his hands and guts are impressive, but I always end up being most impressed with how well he thinks the game. Some posters see his size and say, "top 6 or nothing," but IMO he's smart enough to make a difference at the bottom of the lineup. And I don't think 10min/g in a compressed NHL schedule will hurt his development.

He was okieeeee, nothing fancy. Was taking it a little more seriously than the others IMO though, would use his body more than the other guys were doing.

Took 2-3 shoots, got them all through to the net, a skill that IMO has been missing on the Habs since Schneider due to Markov injuries ... do you all remember how many times Spacek would get his shot blocked?

He seems like a really nice guy, was the first guy to throw pucks into the stands after the scrimmage and gave away his stick to a kid.

If Pleks is playing tomorrow then I am even more puzzled.
