I also think he needs more ice time in order to achieve this.
I thought both Gagne and Handzus developed a physical game last year. They are never going to be bangers, but they learned how to use their bodies. In fact, Gagne threw a few big hits this year. I remember in the Nashville game, he destroyed Legwand, then set up a goal.

I also don't think he's really injury proned. He had one hard year, that's it. He played injury free for most of the season, and if he has another season like last yera, I'd say he's free from the injury proned stigma.
