im not thrilled at all with him
I would like to agree with anyone that says this is the dumbest idea I ever heard. As for your post above, you are completely insane! Gagne is a goal scorer, plain and simple. He is not a Bure that can create his own, he needs a playmaker on his line. Of course when you have the best playmaker in the league playing with you your stats will go up. He had 33 playing with Recchi and Primeau in a much closer checking league, IMO 33 is the equivalent of 45 this year. He had 12 goals in 10 games with Zhamnov on his line last year. Gagne is what he is. He can be an elite goal scorer with a playmaker on his line. This guy is the future of this team with Carter, Richards, Umberger and Pitakanen. The thought of trading this guy for anything other than equal to greater value (Iginla) is just plain dumb!

He has a shooting % of 14.7. The only one better on the team is Knuble at 17, and Forsberg is tied for 2nd. As a comparison Kovalchuk is 15.9, Jagr is 14.3. Other than 4-5 players (Alfredsson, Svatos, Prucha, Sullivan, Tanguay) he is about the average of all the top goal scorers in the league. Not the best, but certainly far from bad. He cant be missing that many shots! I think his defensive presence makes up for the couple points of shooting % he doesnt have.
