The only thing that I find really maddening about Gagne is that he is dripping in offensive talent, yet still hasn't put it all together yet. Part of it is Hitchcock's system, part of it is his linemates (the fact he's been bounced around between various linemates) and the fact he is inconsistent offensively. I have no qualms about Simon's defensive game and it is very good. However, he has five star offensive ability, but only plays at a three to three and a half. That's what is bothersome. If Simon ever decides to get serious about his offensive game, he could be one of the greatest wingers playing the game right now. Instead, he's settled on being good and that's what is disturbing about it. Maybe after the lockout, Hitch will decide to open things up a little bit and it will let Gags really focus on his offensive game.
