Absolutely. He's the kind of player that coaches love to have. Buys into the system, works his ass off, team first kind of guy who can be used in a lot of game situations. I thought he stood out every time out when I watched him play this year. Not so much offensively, although he certainly has offensive flair, but more in an all-around game type of thing, and especially if you watch where he positions himself when the other team has the puck.

The roster only has to be submitted by 5 PM to the league.

It's possible they'll evaluate Plekanec's health after the ongoing practice and make another cut if he's deemed ready to go (speculation on my part, would make sense though).

Doubt it though

Therrien said final cuts would be made prior to practice this morning and that everybody who was there at practice would start with the team

How many guys on the roster now considering Nokelainen is injured?

Selon ce que l'on voit à l'entraînement, Gallagher est sans doute demeuré à Montréal au cas où Plekanec ne puisse jouer demain.

Gelinas thinks Gallagher is only here as Plekanec insurance.

Dans le cas Gallagher, il s'agit d'une récompense en attendant le retour en santé de Nokelainen

I have very good expectations for Gallagher, I wish they'd leave him in the lineup, I would love to see him on the RW with eller and bourque as a third line.

Also, I have a feeling Diaz will have a good season, he had a great season in swiss league and now I think Therrien is giving him his chance.

My take on Gallagher is Galcheniuk is there for the 5 games try-out, if he's not that impressive or the team crumble and it's better for him to not be in this type of environnment for the remainder of the year, he get's send back to Sarnia, Bourque goes on the second, Gallagher on the third with Eller.

If Alex is all what he can be, well Gallagher get sent down in a couple of week and he gets the feeling of the NHL, learning the ropes with the big boys and to much suffering in his development

But if they both are still there in 2-3 weeks, than it might become a problem....

Yeah I don't see a big deal, better to have more bodies around. Let them have a first hand look at Gallagher and maybe give him a game or two. Nothing says Galchenyuk has to play the first 5 games of the season, maybe space it out over 3 weeks. Give them both 5 games then make a call(5 games has no impact on Gallagher's contractual status though). Nokelainen's injury gives them 2-3 weeks to get a look at those two.

If they are both here in 2-3 weeks it's far from a problem, it would mean that both ar exceeding expectations and are playing great so far.

Like I said, I'd like to see this:

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
Galchenyuk - Plekanec - Gionta
Bourque - Eller - Gallagher
Moen - Prust - Armstrong
White

It would be a pretty deep group of forwards, you'd even have great offensive capabilities on the third line and quite a strong 4th line.

But in that instance you'd have him playing in Hamilton & just call him up. I think all this 'bubble wrapping players' stuff has gone to their heads.

I'm thinking Pleks is a game day decision & Gallagher will be sent down if Pleks can play. But that still doesn't explain why they wouldn't use Dumont instead.

Gallagher and Blunden are the extras at practice.

Gallagher has 20 points in 36 AHL games. Yes, it's good for a really low scoring team, but it's not mind blowing either. He's got plenty to learn down there. Like FB just wrote, you can just keep him down there so he can keep playing and call him up if you need a body.

I think BGally (unlike AGally) is just there as an insurance top 9 forward in case Plekanec can't play tomorrow. If Pleks is ready to go, I think BGally gets sent down without playing.

So are you saying that, at this point, AGally is already better than BGally?

Of course. This is should be blatantly obvious to anyone but people around here need something to whine about.

Third overall pick who is physically mature and a big body something this team sorely needs versus late round pick whose small and has shown some difficulty in lower league at producing. I think galchenyuks the right player to have up and leave baby g down in the minors to develop let him get the full year and reevaluate in the fall
