We will just have to disagree on this one, his contract was expiring and he is a proven playoff performer and in the playoffs it is the ability to play sound defensively which is the difference maker, Gagne is one of the best LW lock fwds who can provide the offensive game when games get tight. I understand why he was moved, but this team would be a better team with him on the roster even if just for what he provides on that LW defensively, he fits in Laviolette's system of play.
