He only took 10 days off...

Expect him to improve on those 24 goals.

about Gallagher

Am I the only one worried (slightly) about Gallagher's play? It seems that the more he's progressing in his career, the more he exclusively relies on crashing the net, shooting from far away and fighting into corners.

I know it always have been his strength and that he's good at it, but I think he should sometimes try some "plays", like passing the puck, skating a bit with it, etc. He seems to become more easy to read for the opposition, and less effective because of it.

This is absolutly not a "hater" thread as I like Gallagher pretty much. It's just that I'm starting to worry about his seemingly growing ineffectiveness (worrying in a "crazy habs fan" sense, of course...)

I'm not worried, it's 5 games in. That's how he's developed his game though, crash-crash-crash.

He is getting his chances. Plays relentless on every shift. Should be a 3rd liner though

On how many teams would Gallagher be a third liner?

He's a legit top 6 winger, and stats back that up.

absolutely not worried, I do however believe the kid will not have an extremely long career in the NHL. With his style of play I can't see him being able to play like that forever even he seems to be in very very good shape.

19 and 24 goals the last two seasons. Should be a 3rd liner? Wow.

That line hasn't shown a ton of chemistry so far this year. Gallagher does all the dirty work and hasn't been rewarded yet... It will come, he's too relentless for it not to change.

Wrong chair for him. Not a 1st liner. But he's the best we've got.

If we have 2 RW better than Gally, we'll be a force for the Cup, for certain.

That's also how I remember him playing back in the WHL

Gallagher is used as a puck retriever not as a scorer. Every line in the NHL has one and they always produce less than what their talent shows. Gallagher's impact is way more than just goals or pretty shots.

I never like the Pleck's with Gallagher, would put the Egg line back together and try Semin on the 1st.

This. Egg line would work wonders on the boards. Puck possession demons. Though semin on the first will not work. Kassian should be on the first but... Maybe try DSP there and Semin with DD and Flash.

Yeah I like that a lot actually. I've always wanted to reunite the EGG line with Chuck at center. Semin would provide that scoring touch that DD's line needs. DSP can do pretty much what Gallagher is assigned to do on the first and maybe even better since he provides a bigger screen in front . I just wouldn't mess with the lines right now.

Gallagher is likely being told to crash and griiiind first at the expense of offense. While he shouldn't shy away from the game, the staff could help encourage him to be a goalscorer and do more to become a multifaceted threat. He has a big heart, but he isn't magically going to have an Alex Ovechkin-like body to throw his weight around on the boards.
