Gagne, no question. We didn't lose to the Bruins because we were physically outmatched. We lost to the Bruins because our PP dried up - which is what happens when your 2nd unit PP is poo poo. Who would you rather anchor your 2nd unit PP? Laich, Leino or Gagne? I thought so.
Second, what's the point in becoming one of the premier UFA destinations if not to court guys exactly like Gagne and dare I say Richards? Sweet heart UFA contracts to play in a great environment with a great opportunity to win the Cup is why you can realistically target the big fish.
Let offense-starved lesser lights sign grit (and little else) or questionable character and consistency to flesh out their top 6. Vancouver has a good shot at signing true talent to complement an already elite core. That's how Detroit does it. That's who we're emulating.
