Gagner could put up 55+ points on the wing though. He's certainly a lot better than Versteeg (still have no idea why Philadelphia traded for him).

Anyways, I'm not trying to pump up Gagner or anything, just saying he's a much better winger than he is a centermen.
of course, that's pretty much common sense, however my point is that we dont need another small forward. Carter is one of our biggest forward, and for a team that lacks size already up front, we dont need to be trading him for another undersized forward. we NEED a big bodied winger who can dig pucks out of the corners, plant himself in front of the net and score goals.
