Not trolling. Some of your reasonings are exactly why I said I wouldn't want them either. My belief is, however, that if some of those players can recover from the injuries they've sustained, they'd be worth more than Gagner and I'm willing to take that risk. Though I'm not sure where you got Turris from

The fact of the matter is, Gagner's been in the league for 5 years. He's shown little, if any, progress during those 5 years. That's not saying he's peaked, but what can change in his game that he hasn't improved upon in the previous 5 seasons?

That's why I'd put players like Kadri or Hogdson around him, because while they haven't produced like Gagner, they haven't been in the NHL long enough to produce like Gagner. They may put up less points than him, they may put up more, and as I stated earlier, I'm a risk-taker.
