I am obviously not saying that Gagner is going to be the next Giroux, but he has the talent to take a turn at such a young age. Sam Gagner might have been rushed to the NHL, but i doubt the oilers have given up on him yet.
Fixed that for ya.
Gagner <<< 8th overall, let alone adding to 8th overall. LOL
And Oiler fans wonder why they (along with Toronto) have the rap on here for biggest homers.
