Gagne's the best player of that group, but he's bound to get hurt. I like the idea of Laich - depending on the price. Character guy, 20+ goals in 3 of the last 4 seasons, and a pretty productive player (23 points in 37 games) in the playoffs.
Regardless of who they sign, it's pretty clear the Canucks need one and perhaps two more players that can score. They were one win away, but Chris Higgins and Mason Raymond are not second line players on a championship team in my opinion.
Raymond's injury combined with Samulesson slowing production means the Canucks really need to sign two scoring wingers, and then hope somebody like Hodgson is ready to push for an NHL job.
