We plan to always use ou cap space anyway.... It makes more sense for a team like Nashville who doesn't spend to the cap to make this type of move

And or those saying IF he can stay healthy he'll do well... I agree with you, he's a good hockey player. But I just think that is unlikely, once you have concussion problems, future concussions are easier to get.
Exactly. We'll be needing the cap space to re-sign several players over the span in which Gagné's contract will last... that'll be problematic for us if we want to re-sign those players.

I would take Gagné under better circumstances, but at the price-tag and contract length, I'd say no.
