Gagne is the type of player that would be a good fit there, but he will be too expensive to sign.
BTW- there is some logic to putting a guy like that in front of the net and having him bat home rebounds, but I am 99.9% sure that Torts does not want Brian Boyle playing that many minutes a game. He will never be more than a 3rd line guy.
So having one of the best play makers in the league on the line isn't enough play making ability? Holmstrom looks fine with Datsyuk and Zetterberg. Knuble was just fine with Backstrom and Ovechkin. I'm not really sure what "throw off the incredible amount of skill" even means.
