Exactly. As soon as you get Gagner away from anchors like Omark, he immediately starts to look better. No surprise, no mystery.

You could put almost any player in the lineup with Gagner and it would be a far better alternative than Omark.

Hemsky is an odd player to play with and it takes time for most players to suss him out. Plus Hemsky is struggling generally this year. Still, Hemsky and Gagner showed some chemistry before in the season and hopefully will again. Definitely Hall is going to help out. Of course I wish it was Eberle but everyline on every team would want Eberle on it right now..
