Ok.. that was a nice play but that is about ALL I think I've seen him do.

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

The Kings aren't going to win or lose because of Brad Richardson.
Well, if they aren't going to lose because of him, they might as well play him. Like the guy above you said, he is a lot more tenacious on the forecheck and Gagne isn't providing much of anything. If he scores tonight, I'll eat my words but I'd rather have Clifford or Richardson in before him.
