Holland picked up his 80th assist over the weekend making him the first WHL'er to reach that mark since 1996-97.

The last player being Todd Robinson, who was a dominant WHLer but too small to make the NHL.

That is the fear i have for Gallagher, but not Holland who is average size and seems destined to make it as a 3rd/4th line winger, time will tell.

Saw Dietz play last night, he went end to end and put a wrister top corner, not a Coffey-type rush by any stretch nor tough competition, but still good to see he has some puck skills at least and also got tossed for fighting near end of game.

The league has changed a lot since the 90's. Gallagher may not have made it then... but he very well could make it post lockout.

i have seen Gallagher play plenty and he is a top player almost every game, causing shit around the net, running oveer goalies and shooting from everywhere and i hope he can be a point/game guy in AHL (like Desharnais) and through his tenacity and nose for the net, make the jump and be a producer for the Habs. But will need to wait and see how he does next fall and hope he is not a Cory Locke type.

Yup he's a graduating senior

So are we saying that he needs to be signed or needs to be qualified? It would strike as being pretty weird if a graduating senior can just decline a qualifying offer and become a UFA.

He would be

4 years post draft you become a ufa if you are out of college and never sign a deal.

Compare this to an OHL kid... drafted and hold his rights for two years.... if not signed goes back into draft; if drafted again and still not signed ufa in 2 years.

The rule gives some power back to players and if a Lindros situation happens again prevents the team from holding him forever

The idea is that players can bypass 4 years of pay if they really want to be ufas.

Corey Locke was small and a mediocre skater. That was his biggest issue.

Gallagher is a great skater, Fleury kind of tenacity. I expect him to be a lot like a young Cammalleri.

Tinordi is on Sportsnet tonight if you're looking to flip to something during the breaks in the Hab game. They're taking on Sarnia (which includes Alex Galchenyuk).

A young Cammalleri? you have got to be joking, one thing Gallagher isnt, is a gutless floater with a huge ego (sorry i just have developed a strong unliking for that player over past 2 seasons).

But i guess like Cammalleri, he is a shooter/sniper and good around the net, but Gallagher has balls, unlike the Tyrell Owens of hockey.

I see Gallagher as more Gionta or Fleury like than Cammalleri like as well.

i think Gallagher has mentioned St.Louis as an inspiration, but Gionta i think is more like him and if all goes well, he will have similar #s. But i dont htink he can be near as good as Fleury, who was over point/game in NHL, so no slight there, but Gallagher does have his "fiestyness".

I will likely check out some of his game tonight after Habs game. He is always entertaining and non-stop on every shift, and is like Ovechkin used to be and shoots from anywhere and often.

More a style comparison, then a numbers comparison.  Its too much to expect Gallagher to put up HHOF numbers like Fleury. I was more saying how Gallagher has the non-stop motor that those guys have, the fiestiness, the battle to get to the front of the net, the ability to get under people's skin, and the fact that he can be used in all situations PP and PK. Those are things Cammalleri never had. And I like Cammalleri a lot still.

I dont disagree on Gallagher one bit;

on Cammalleri though?, i watch a few Flame games and there he is every shift, floating coasting till gets puck and gives it away if anyone challanges him, wont go near a corner nor fight for a puck, etc etc.

I have said before, i would stop criticizing him if he produced, but he didnt for past 2 years and i was one happy camper when he got yanked in that game and was gonzo. With both he and Spacek gone, i am Gauthier's biggest fan.

Brock Nelson (isles prospect) is so good.  I'd love to steal him.  Power forward top 6 Centre for sure. He'll be as good as Patches but at Centre IMO. What a Prospect Stud
