I don't get this whole "Gagne is clutch" thing. Hes anything but. If it weren't for two games where he showed up, he would have had 7 points in 15 games and looked many nights like a boat anchor slowing his line down. Perhaps in another time (or another team, yes) he could have been called that, but at this point no.

Why people seem to think we'll be much worse is because they highly overvalue Bergenheim.
People think Gagne is clutch for the same reason they overvalue Bergenheim. It's something they did in a relatively recent playoff run, so that's what they are.

Look at how Conn Smythe winners are perceived. Gods among men.
