Gallagher plays with his heart on his sleeve, which has helped and hurt him during his career, but one thing that cannot be questioned is the pride he takes in wearing the Canadiens sweater.

However, after scoring only two goals in 22 playoff games last year while playing a defensive role and battling a hand injury, and only six goals in 54 games this season, what can we expect from Gallagher and his US$6.5M annual cap hit for the next five years?

Gallagher, who turns 30 on May 6, is far from old, but he is at the point in his career when NHL aging curves see a decline in play, especially in terms of production. Couple that with his physical play and the serious injuries he’s endured, and there’s a lot of wear and tear on his body.
