Brendan Gallagher Appreciation

Toughest little guy we've had in a long time in Montreal. Incredible how hard he is to knock off the puck.... You'd think he was a foot taller and 50 pounds heavier when he works the corners and boards. I wish that we had 5 more like him, we'd be Cup contenders every year.

He hasn't been scoring ever since he's been taken off the EGG line, but has been creating space for MaxPac and DD.

He did everything but score last night, (and most others).... Since he's been put on Pacioretty's line, Pacioretty has been lighting it up.

He always find ways to get his line going. We could argue he isn't a first liner, but you put him on a first line and he will help it, no doubt about it.

The first time I saw him play I fell in love with him. Knew what he was all about.

Hey man, everything and everyone needs an appreciation thread.

Other observations: #Bruins Chara might have been wondering why #Habs Gallagher didn't pick on someone his own size. Kid is fearless/nuts...

Gallagher doesn't have the offensive skill like Galchenyuk nor is he defensive stud like Eller but he drives and crashes his way to the net. We haven't had a player like that since Saku Koivu and further back Kirk Muller. These are the guys that make things happen unlike perimeter players like Cammalleri, Zubrus, Valeri Bure etc.

Now guys like Eller and Galchenyuk crashes the net too but doesn't cause as much trouble as Gallagher. Gally reminds me of Tomas Holmstrom.

It's somewhat sad he's been kept of the statsheet when he's clearly contributing more to his line than DD. As long as the line is scoring I can't complain though. Especially since DD is already signed and Gally can't ask for intangibles money in his bridge deal in a couple years.

He seems to elevate his game in challenging / emotional games like last night, which is a great sign. Despite his size, he seems like a player that would be a killer in the playoffs.

I'd like to see him eventually reunite with Galch and Eller. He could be a 30 goal scorer on a line like that.

I still think Canada should consider him for fourth line energy in Sochi.

I posted last season that Gallagher was the single biggest difference for our offensive improvement. I stand by it. He's got the fastest shot-release on the team and surprisingly good accuracy, plus very good vision. Plus that ridiculous Kamikaze dive-bomb towards the net -- awesome to behold.

But more important than skills is the example he sets for the rest of the roster. Gallagher sets the level of compete that every other player has to reach. They see this small kid exploding into the O-zone and realize they have to step up their own game. I've been on teams and groups -- the effect of enthusiasm is huge. Gallagher's aggression rubs off on everyone else, which is a big reason why the Habs overall goal totals have shot up since he arrived.
