I'm not sure if Plekanec is "much superior" offensively, but he's certainly a much better overall player. Anyway, I'm not even sure Gagner is ultimately going to stick as a center. But he's got a nice 200-pt start on the way to 1,000 at an age where some guys (think Ray Whitney) had just cracked the league. He'll still need some 70-80 pt seasons and decent longevity to get there, but I think he has a chance, anyway. Barring unforseen major injuries.
