Just how good exactly is Gallagher going to be?

I've been following him since he got draft in 2010. I remember last year he was the last player to be sent to the minors during the preseason games and when he was on the ice I always said: Look it's Brendan Gallagher! =) I was surprised that the habs kept him in the NHL but I was so happy at the same time! ...I hope that he will be okay after Schen's body check because he totally didn't see it coming.

The prospects that I follow now are Patrick Holland and Tim Bozon. Holland doesn't have a good season this year but he possesses good stick handling skills and can enter the offensive zone with a lot of speed too. Bozon I just like his stats but I don't know anything about him =). (GP:57 G:32 A: 43 Pts:75)

His playstyle is quite aggressive so will have a lot of injuries. if he can stay healthy he'll be 30+goal scorer easy

I see a 15-20 goal per season on average. He is looking great now but i see his goals coming in spurts. As well as once he starts putting up good numbers teams will be watching for him more. If he hits 20 goals on average and a great year of 25-30, that would be amazing.

Doubt he ever tops gionta's best year (84pts), but could see him average similar #'s for his career.

Hope I'm underestimating him!

I agree with everything Miller Time wrote.

As for Recchi, his “annoying pit-bull with a big mouth” attitude (that’s a good thing btw!) is more similar but the guy was a great playmaking winger and he had a much better vision than Gallagher. He also was an iron man...

That said, I agree with Whitesnake: Gallagher needs to learn how to protect himself.

The Bulldogs are not an interesting team to watch but Gallagher and Bournival were two of my favourite prospects during the lockout so it’s good to see Gallagher thrives in the NHL.

I think he's the real deal.The way he plays with confidance and doesn't give a **** about anything , doing what it takes to produce is re-assuring.

I don't think he's an illusion.

I agree, but he'll be seeing them soon enough if he keeps getting hit in the head.

Why I don't brag up young players. All it takes is another concussion, puck to eye or even blown knee could wreck a career.

Seriously.

He doesn't have any more of a chance of having a wrecked career than any other player.

I said it before and say it again a mix of marchand and recchi (not as productive of course). Without the marchand chromosone and recchi's phd.

Style:
gritty/more heart/feisty Samsonov (when he was a Bruin).
Poor man Theo Fleury. Classier version of Marchand.
Young Gionta...etc.

Love Gallagher's feisty style/heart/hustle....
(his style was made for the playoffs... I just want him to be more careful out there...watch those blind spots...every Hab player can learn a lot abou this from Subban...the best Hab at protecting himself intelligently).

Micheal Ryders shot with tenacity and stick handling. I could see him being a 30ish goal scorer without too much trouble

I'll be amazed if he can have a career similar to Ray Whitney or Cliff Ronning. Very impressed by him.
