Players that embellish on a consistent basis run the risk of not receiving the benefit of the doubt when they are legitimately fouled. Brendan Gallagher is too effective and too good a player to develop that unwanted reputation from the refs.

Therrien: "there there would have been 5 penalties late in the game for what the Jets did to Gallagher. We will ask for explanations."
Kerry Fraser of TSN answers a question about the Brendan Gallagher no-goal last night...
The very simple answer is that, in the collective judgment of the men staffing the NHL Situation Room last night where majority rules, it was decided that Brendan Gallagher used his right skate to kick the puck into the net!
I, like you Brad and many other fans that tweeted their confusion following this decision, am still attempting to find clear evidence of the 'distinct kicking motion' that Brendan Gallagher is claimed to have used to boot the puck into the net. This review further demonstrates the wide differences in judgment that can result from one person to another when making officiating specific decisions.
from the CP at TSN,
Montreal Canadiens rookie forward Brendan Gallagher suffered a concussion in Saturday night's win over the Philadelphia Flyers.
Gallagher -- who has five goals and three assists this season -- left the game in the third period after taking a hit from Flyers defenceman Luke Schenn.
Habs coach Michel Therrien says Gallagher is already feeling a lot better but the team will make sure he's fully recovered before returning to action.

From Vicki Hall at the Calgary Herald:
“I think they’re going to do that parachute jump. So they’ll be looking forward to it. And I guess they’ll be carrying backpacks and stuff like that. But the army is in charge of that stuff, so it will be fun to watch.”
St. Louis Blues prospect Ty Rattie respectfully waffled on the “fun” concept - especially when it came to the notion of the parachute jump.
“I’m on the ground, so it interests me now,” he said. “I think if I get up there, it might not be so interesting. But I think I would do it.”
Vancouver Giants forward Brendan Gallagher expressed similar misgivings, but also opted to stay positive about the ordeal ahead of him.
“I’ve heard we’re repelling down walls, which I’ve never done before,” said the fifthround (147th overall) draft pick of the Montreal Canadiens. “I’m obviously not used to being in a military camp.”
