I agree. Behind Richards and Timonen, Gagne is the third-best player on the Flyers. He's got a phenomenal two-way game, great scoring touch, and he's a quiet leader. He is a calming presence in the locker room. He is the second-best goal-scorer on the team and is better than average in shootouts. Furthermore, he is the longest-tenured Flyer and held the organization together during the brutal 06-07 season. If he and Briere had both been healthy, those two would have both put up ridiculous numbers.
