On This day in 1988, The Bruins secured a big deal with Defenceman Garry Galley.

Galley Signed a big deal with the Bruins after playing 3 seasons with the King and 2 seasons with the Washington Captials.
He's a skilled player,' said Maine Mariners coach Mike Milbury, who ran the Bruins practices while the NHL club was on an exhibition game road trip. 'The rap on him has been his defensive play, but he does some things we can work on. And the (offensive) dimension he adds to the game can definitely help us.'

'Coming here is a new life, a chance to start fresh,' said Galley, who started his NHL career with the L.A. Kings in 1984-85 and was traded to the Capitals in Feb. of 1987. 'Washington wanted me strictly for the power play. Some games they'd tell me, 'That's all you're going to do tonight.

'In my heart, I know I can contribute more than that. I was second on the team in plus-minus with a plus-21 in very limited even-strength action.'

The 25-year-old offensive D-man was primarliy used on the powerplay and was viewed and criticized as a one-dimensional player.
