Gallagher was just compared to Gio on CBC like many of us have, but I think Gallagher will have a higher ceiling in terms of 2-way play and intangibles. He's a better stickhandler and hitter. Not the same speed as gio, but his shot and IQ are similar
Gionta is pretty damn good when it comes to 2 way play and intangibles.
Gallagher is defiitely more skilled though, even if he lacks that breakaway speed.
