Gallagher has put life into the Habs. I didn't anticipate that he'd play a key role in their rebirth this season. I took it for granted that Prust would fit in very well and I had hopes for Diaz (who I felt would supplant Weber). Rivaling Gallagher as the biggest surprise of the season were the Cole trade, the Bourque revival, and the arrival of Galchenyuk. Who could imagine these developments on Day 1? The tankards have been awfully silent recently. Their superegos forbid the idea of the Habs leading the Bruins so late in the season and not far from clinching a playoff berth. Now even Armstrong has started scoring goals. Are we approaching Armageddon? Should the tankards begin their self-flagellation? Repent! Repent!

Got smacked around badly again last night. Love the kid but he HAS to learn to better protect himself or he'll end up having a 100 gms career with 30 goals and 5 concussions

Way too early in his career for him to start thinking about what he has to do to prolong his career. He's in survival mode. He's hungry and it's working.

Fleury took a beating his entire career.

He was still productive in his final seasons.

If he didn't have such unfortunate things happen to him at such a young age he would have played all through the 2000s as at least a half point per game player.

Almost every Tampa game I see, St-Louis gets crushed a few times.

If the smaller players don't go balls to the wall, they would have a hard time keeping their NHL jobs.

Back in 2010, Gallagher was voted the top10 steal of the draft. Even though I don't know anything about prospect selection, I knew that there was something special about him. His size made him fell in the 5th round but this guy is totally a 1st round pick. Listening to the radio at some Giants games made me realized how gritty this player is. =)

The only problem will always be his size: he needs to be with a big center and wing. I hope that we won't see Gionta-Desharnais-Gallagher together because the three of them could get injured during the same game on the same shift.

Now I can't wait to see Tim Bozon at the Habs developping camp!

And you came to those conclusions because of what? Because of your extended period as an NHL coach, or as an NHL player?

Yesterday, he just ran into Boyes by accident. Those plays can happen to anyone. Besides that, Carkner made a fool of himself yet another time, and after, nothing else happened.

I see some parallels with Theo, that's why I considered him a poor man's fleury earlier in this thread.

This is because Theo was lightning quick, not just quick, and he possessed much better hands than Gally. He could deke and drag in a phone booth at top speed.

From a tenacious/competitiveness standpoint they are almost identical.

Personally the closest comparison I found for Gallagher in term of hockey style is Zack Parisé..

Give him a chance - he will be better

Gallagher - Small man, Big Goals

Pretty sure he has a thread somewhere... didn't feel like looking...

This is not his first game winning goal this season...

He seems to be able to score the important goals when needed, be it a game tieing or game winner!

How many game winners does that give him now this year? (Including shootouts)
