Not sure if this was mentionned, but Gallagher is attending the Team Canada U20 summer camp. There were only about 15 draft eligibles invited.

Artard. Dont stress our size, especially in the new NHL. Right now, our team is not too small. We have size on the back end and guess what? Theres always defencemen on the ice with our forwards. Could we use more grit? Yes, but CLEARLY it didnt hold us back too much last season. Even against Philly, getting out muscled wasnt the main reason we lost the series. As far as our prospects go, by the time this kid has a chance at making the team, we could be as big as the fcking New York Knicks. I'm tired of hearing this "We're too small" garbage especially after the amazing run we had this year.

We are in a very good position, we acquired Gallagher, MacMillan, Tinordi, and Ellis, without sacrificing prospects, players, or anything of the kind.

So we add to our prospect pool and players like Eller, and Pouliot give us the size upfront with the loaded potential, speed and skill. I think people should stop obsessing on size, and realize that if we did obsess over size we would pull a NYR and draft a Dman Enforcer with no real skill at pick #10 instead of Cam Fowler.

We are good to go, and people should realize skill, speed and the size of the person's heart matter much more than the size of the person.

"You can't miss him. He usually is the smallest guy out on the ice. But he's not afraid to go to those tough areas, whether it's in the corner or in front of the net."

Buddy just described Brian Gionta

Makes me wonder was he the reason the team was so successful, or was there someone on the team that made him so successful?

This! If he can turn out to be a great player and a diamond in the rough then I say good. His real test will be next year. What kind of numbers he will be able to put up. The thing that intrigues me the most about our current small forwards is that they all have a niche. Gomez is a passer, Gionta gets dirty in the crease, and cams a freakin sniper. Thats the way I see it. What is gall's niche? What does he excell at the most?

From what I've heard his skill/talent and determination are unmatched, he is a leader aswell as a high skill player, we'll see what happens, but I think he will be a solid 2 way player, both good at passing and shooting but not a master at both

meh, for what its worth

the two leading scorers for the giants this year were

Craig Cunningham 5"9, 175 lbs , 72 GP 37 G 60 A for 97 PTS ->44 PIM<- (meh)
Brendan Gallagher 5"8, 165 lbs , 72 GP 41 G 40 A for 81 PTS ->111 PIM<-(there we go)

cunningham turns 20 years old in september and was drafted THIs year by the bruins at #97

Gallagher is 18 and drafted at #147 by montreal

there MIGHt be a lil bias in my post but its fair!

If I'm not mistaken Gallagher just turned 18, during his scoring rampage this year he was age 17, so thats a huge plus.

Curious to know what would be the difference between Gallagher and Jordan Weal?

Weal - Rd 3 -70 - 5'9 162
gp 71 g 35 pts 102 pim 54

Gallagher - Rd 5 - 143 - 5'8 165
gp 72 g 41 pts 81 pim 111

Gallagher starts with "G" like Gionta, and Weal doesn't. That's apparently all you need to know.

I also think Weal had the better team around him. Look at the Pats roster with guys like Eberle, Teubert, Ashton, etc. It helps when other teams key on those guys. Gallagher doesn't seem to have too much around him.

I predict Gallagher will get up on Dumont's shoulders so he can reach and punch out Lucic

Chara would require Dumont to get on Desharnais shoulder so Gall can reach him.

I don't know about that, really. Look at the Vancouver roster again. There are 17 of 25 players on the list that were either draft eligible this year, or are eligible next year, but they did have four NHL draftees (Wright, Connauton, Bouma, and Vincour), and others who came into their own as expected (Cunningham, Manning, etc). Good timing and planning made Vancouver a damn good team, and decently deep too, no mistake.

Now as far as LINES go, I think Weal playing with Eberle might have made some people wonder how much of his production was due mostly to Eberle, but at the same time Weal would have been facing opponents' best defenses night in and night out. Which takes us back to your first sentence, which I disagree with: I think Weal had the better linemate(s), whereas Gallagher had the better team.

Weal is a more of an offensive threat but isn't nearly as feisty. The argument could be made that Weal is also on a better team.

I'd throw in a Gionta just for good measure

I'll be honest I just don't know much on the WHL other then the major players. I just saw Eberle, Ashton, Teubert, etc. and figured they had the better lineup. But you may be right..however, I do think Eberle had an impact on Weal's scoring. So we'll see how Jordan does without Eberle next year.

An easy example could be Luciano Aquino and Aaron Snow when they played with Wolski in Brampton. Aquino had 72 points in 36 games and couldn't find his way in the ECHL and AHL for a while. Aaron Snow had a PPG and never had over 41 points again after Wolski left.
