Agree 100%.

The one glaring thing to me that we gave up when we swapped Gagne for Richardson was Richardson's board work on the forecheck and how fast he gains position. That kid's stick work and speed around the O-zone boards is missing BADLY. Yeah, Gagne has more natural skill in the open ice but Richardson's tenacious forecheck is sorely missed.

I dont like Gagne being in at this point. Not at all.
