So yes, on the ice, Gagne right now is as valuable if not more so than Ryan as he continues to develop.

That said, Ryan's best years are ahead of him despite whatever contract he comes out of this offseason with.

I don't know why it's hard for people to understand.
I disagree. It has nothing to do with me not understanding.

I don't think teams expect him to put up those numbers. He only has 1 year left on his deal so while cap hit would be troublesome, his contract wouldn't be that big of a deal. Not enough to have the flyers considering waiving him.
