I have to admit I was wrong on Gallagher's NHL readiness. I was looking at his production more than anything, but there's not a player with half of Galchenyuk's offensive skills and creativity at center in Hamilton. Gallagher would have most likely produced a LOT more if they had that type of C.
Don't think I've ever been more wrong!*

2 things are still bugging me. Bourque and Cole haven't scored yet. We're getting most of our goals from our bottom 6 and from our defense, which can't be sustainable if our top 6 don't start producing.
but we have depth now. it's probably good to not always be relying on the top 6. we're just not use to it, and gionta and pleks are scoring. just the one line is struggling, even then, pacioretty had 4 assist and we were letting him have it. habs cannot sustain this, but it's good to no we can win games if our top guys are not producing.
Thanks for the good words. DeBoer needs to get Larsson in there!
Let's not carry ourself out to be honest i expected this i called the habs to finish 6th this year, it's still early but they are playing like a playoff team.
But our bubble could be burst if he suffer another major injury so we should stay cautious for now and just appreciate the wins specially when they play good like this.
Galchenyuk really has some special talent and he has the attitude to succeed in the nhl. For those saying he had lack of speed i certainly didn't see it in the last two games. I hope Gallagher and Galchenyuk are just the 2\3 of our future first line, the other spot will have to be taken by either Paciorretty, Kristo or Collberg.
Collberg is on fire playing with mans in europe i think he might come next year or i don't know about his contract status. Still he looks like a future nhl player.
If the prospects we have like Tinordi Beaulieu Kristo Collberg Thrower and cie can be nhlers i think we are looking at a promising decade that will include a stanley cup.
