Hawks- and other- fans will be up in arms over Gagner not being good enough etc. but really, his vision is his best asset and pairing him with a defensively strong scorer would be a coup. Gagner could also provide an ancilliary benefit in being a friend of- and perhaps stabilizing force for- Pat Kane.

Stalberg-Toews-Kane
Hossa-Gagner-Sharp
Bickell-Bolland-Frolik
Saad-Kruger-Shaw

Keith-Seabrook
Leddy-Oduya
Olsen-Montador


Hall-RNH-Eberle
Smyth-Horcoff-Hemsky
Paajarvi-Lander-Yakupov
Eager-Belanger-Jones

Smid-Petry
Whitney-Schultz
Hjalmarsson-Potter
Again this is not a good option for Hawks ,, And Hammer wouldn't be on Oilers 3rd pairing
