Not a big shocker the way they have played since Gallagher jumped into the lineup.

Like that crazy-sexy girlfriend you had in College, this city can love you too much.
At least they are not left alone. AGally lives with Gionta and BGally with Gorges. There's enough leadership to not them fall into abyss.

Agreed. That line needs to stick.

I think one of the major contributors to the Gallys (Gallii?) success so far this season has been MT's ability to give them sheltered minutes and still have them on the ice for 12 minutes a game. The reason? The habs' solid, dependable, gritty 4th line.

With White, Moen and Armstrong capable of logging minutes against the other team's scoring lines and kill some penalties, the Habs don't need to rely on the gallys to play a defensive role in the same vein as a traditional 3rd line. Throw in Prust as a defensively responsible utility man with size on that line, and the Gallys can be given the free range to go out there and play their game without worrying about a) carrying the load offensively and b) going up against other teams' top lines.

I was on the fence about keeping Gally up before the season began, but given the situation he has been put in, on top of being allowed to shift back to center where he is CLEARLY more comfortable and effective, there is no doubt in my mind that staying with the big club will be beneficial to his development.

No it hasn't. Gionta said he'd be open to it on the Friday before the season started, but Galchenyuk would have to be willing to babysit.

Awesome news guys! Prust has been a solid addition to this team and a good 3rd line mate for the Gallys. Bring on Winnipeg!

I'm soo glad for these two. They've been playing great, especially together. After last night's game, it was obvious they would stay. But making it official only after 4 games makes it a nice touch. Hope these guys keep it up. I'm sure they'll have their slower moments during the season. Maybe a shortened season will help them somehow. But they look great so far. I'm very impressed. Wishing these guys they can keep it up. Great stuff!

Pro: the kids have shown that they have the talent and desire to play at NHL level, and as such, deserve to be kept for the rest of the season. They are a wave of fresh air in that team.

Con: the competition will get stiffer and stiffer as the season goes on, and I have some doubt they won't be able to follow the parade and wil be stucked (at least Galchenyuk) at NHL level. The Habs will then have lost one year of the entry contract on him. I just hope they won'ty burn any of them like they did with Latendresse and almost did with Price.

I think everyone expects the con part at some point. It's pretty rare that rookies can contribute all season long. They'll probably have a drought at some point. I expect teams like Flyers and Bruins go after this line. Sure they'll have some trouble, it's part of the learning curve. The way they are used though, I don't think it'll burn them out. And besides, we don't really have better options to put on their line anyways. I think it'll be fine.

I guess they figured a Russian mother will be better at keeping him in line than Gionta or Plekanec.

if galchenyuk puts up 20goals next year and 28 the next he's gonna be in line to get a huge raise.bergevin gonna screw him too?

Gallagher staying at Gorges' place makes lots of sense because both are from B.C. and Gorges is training with Gallagher's father.

Not really surprised of that news.

What Galchenyulk did is just beyond impressive.

To do the jump from CHL to NHL, is something only a few can do.
At the age of 18.... even more impressive.
With missing to whole last season due to a serious injury... WOW!
