I agree that of the three, Gagne is the one to target. I have no doubt in my mind that Brooks Laich is going to get severely overpaid this off-season. Scott Hartnell got $4M+ at what was it, a $50M or so cap? I wouldn't be surprised if Laich got $4.5-5M and at least 4 years, probably 5 or 6.

Gagne has the injury history which is problematic no doubt. But it could also work on the favor of whatever team that signs him given he could take less on a shorter term deal. You gotta figure he's eager to win a cup as well and Vancouver would offer him one of the better shots at that no question.

If Gillis could get Gagne on a two year deal worth between $3-4M per year, I would be pleased.
