Missing 5 Sarnia games to spend another 10-12 days with the NHL team wouldn't be stupid. If it was 2 months I would agree, but missing 4-5 junior games won't derail his development. Just being with NHLers and having NHL practices and coaches will be a good experience.

Any confirmation that Gallagher is staying regardless of Plekanec's status?

I thought that I heard somewhere that he was PO'd about the CBA and considered retiring or something like that. Glad that's not the case.

Only after the season he may retire.

TSN still thinks Gallagher is junior aged or doesn't understand the rules.

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=413863

On Friday, the club set their 23-man-roster that included 20-year-old right winger Brendan Gallagher and 18-year-old Alex Galchenyuk.

Both players can play up to five NHL games this season and still be sent back to junior without using up a year on their entry-level contracts.

Thanks guys, forgive my ignorance on the subject but I'm doing a last minute scramble for a hockey pool.

Cole has clarified his comments...he basically said at the time he was frustrated and spoke with that mindset....

Expect Erik Cole to honour the terms of his contract.

To be perfectly honest, I wouldn't be too upset if he decided to retire before the final year of his contract.

Yeah who needs 30+ goal scorers when you can have more cap space!

Very awesome to see that Gallagher is staying up. But I really, really, really hope we aren't going to use him as a 4th liner.

Or is he only here in-case Pleks can't go?

Also assuming this means Noke is going on the IR?

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

Markov - Emelin
Kaberle - Gorges
Bouillon - Diaz
Weber

??

I'm assuming (with no basis for this whatsoever) that Gallagher is still with the team because they will be trading Bourque in order to clear cap space for Subban's long term contract.

I highly doubt we're moving Bourque. His value is low despite being a 30-goal scorer right now.

Bergevin isn't going to budge. We're not giving Subban $6M a year.

If we keep up Gallagher and sit him in the pressbox though, I'm going to be pissed. He was practicing as an extra today.

They have plenty of cap room to sign Subban. Best thing they can do it let Bourque play and get off to a hot start or have a good season THEN move him. At his cap hit if he is on a 25 goal pace he should be easy to move.

Plenty of cap space at what the Habs are offering, not at what Subban is asking (allegedly).

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

Gallagher and Blunden, i don't understand why we kept them. Even in practice today, Gallagher and Blunden were not part of those lines above.

I can understand they want to keep Blunden up until Nokelainen is ready. But put Gallagher in AHL for this year.

Glad Gallagher stayed up, he nearly made it last year so it's good he gets a chance. He could learn a lot from being around Gionta and learning to play bigger than his stature against the best
