For #2 C's that would place him in the top 10....7th actually if you consider there should be 30 #1 C's.

That would actually make Gagner as a fact a legit #2 C.

To answer your question, he would be the #2 C for at least 20 teams in the league.
Yep...IMO another example of how we as fans can have an idealized notion of what a 2nd line center should be, even though the facts state something altogether different when you actually take the time to look at what the other 29 teams had in place for their 2nd line centers.
