I agree that Gagne is the best of the bunch and it isn't even close, but his injury problems concern me. Can he play a full season? His post all-star numbers last year were good (27 points in 30 games), but if he can't play a full season what's the point?
I wouldn't trade Samuelsson. There aren't many players who have chemistry with the Sedins and it is nice to have an option to replace Burrows when AV needs to switch things up a bit.
