But they do have a lot of respect for each other. They had real nice words for each other two years ago when we played them in the first round.
Yeah , I remember that too, Methot said Gally is a pain in the ass to play against and is really tough to contain. No matter how much you hit him and push him he's always getting up and never gives up!

Looks like Brendan has his mojo back. He's absolutely buzzing now.

Our little ball of hate, is coming around, and at the right time...this could be good, real good. He has had a tough season, so he really seems to be bringing it, since Julien took over.

Hey look another player that's vastly improved under Julien.

Great to see Gallagher back to playing like only he can.

Was coming here to post this.

He looks like he did last year before the injuries, which is great because we desperately need him to provide that extra jump and secondary scoring!

I would move Gallagher in a package for a C.. Hudon can play LW and I know Byron has played RW for us in the past.

I agree. Gallagher is the guy I would hate to trade but I would understand if he acquires us a guy like Duchene. Gallagher, Beaulieu or Juulsen, 1st round pick for Duchene. If no deal, then move on to other options and let some other team over pay.

Likewise. Perhaps something can be done with Calgary around Sam Bennett, although they just went the budget route with Lazar so maybe RW isn't as big a need for them as it once was.

If Edmonton would bite on a RNH for Gallagher swap, that's one of the few cases where I'd consider moving him.

He represents a lot to this team, beyond his own ice impact... I think moving Gallagher sends the wrong message, unless you get a very solid player in return.

its amazing how people turned on this guy. The guy finally hits a real slump for pretty much the first time and all of a sudden he's garbage.

The "what have you done lately" mentality rules on these boards.

Really crazy how fans turn on players who give their all for a team, isn't it?



Gallagher's great, he's rehabbing unfortunate injuries - he's the kind of player that wins you a cup. I'm really happy for him to have turned the corner.

Great to see his big grin back. If he is truly getting his game back right before the playoffs then that's HUGE for this club.

1) No package with Gallagher is going to get us a legitimate top 6 center

2) With his price tag and passion, it would be extremely stupid to trade him. Even when he's on a cold streak, his CF% tells us his lines have always been in puck control on the ice. The second we would trade Gallagher, we'd be in pursuit of finding a RW with his exact attributes.

Trading him is lunacy. He makes 3.75 a year and you can plug him on any line and he'll be effective plus get 20 goals (assuming health). That's very valuable.

The best part is that he was still creating scoring chances and driving play at his usual incredible rates

People have wanted to call him a third liner since forever.

The truth is actually played like an average 1st liner in most of the past few seasons.

It was unfortunate the Habs couldn't land an impact top 6 player at the deadline

But if Gallagher is back to being the Gallagher we all know

There's your top 6 forward

Since the deadline:

Byron 13 Games 11 Points
Gallagher 13 Games 10 Points
Danault 13 Games 7 Points
Lehkonen 13 Games 6 Points
Shaw 13 Games 6 Points

These 5 combined for 7 points in 54 games in February, nice to see our secondary guys step up offensively.

Yup. It's honestly great to have him back.. I was definitely worried there for a bit there. .

But it's like we traded for him at the deadline lol

just gotta get Galchenyuk going. If we get everyone going then we have a ton of depth. Our forward group maybe unspectacular but its pretty damn deep. Galchenyuk, Shaw and Lehkonen's a pretty damn talented 3rd line.


I'd consider moving him back to C. Maybe he's injured

55.2% CF (2nd best among forwards)
10.62 on-ice scoring chances for, per 60 (best among Habs forwards)
3.98 individual scoring chances for per 60 (best among Habs forwards)
All at 5-on-5

I'll concede that he didn't look quite right, that's the funny part, but he was driving play and creating scoring chances

That is absolutely false. He most definitely was not creating chances or driving play, in some stretches, not even a remote hint of it.
