He's no different than guys we've had in the past like Tukonen.
He did much more for the Kings than Tukonen ever did, c'mon now.

He's an NHL player but the injuries have led him to losing any spot he may have had with this team. I would be stoked if he stayed here as he would be a great depth forward but don't see it happening. Even if no other team will give him a one-way contract, it makes sense to sign a two-way with a team that doesn't have as much competition at forward.

With that being said, no way Gagne stays healthy all year so it would be nice to have a depth scorer of Parse's caliber in the event Doan doesn't happen. If Doan is signed, I would be willing to move Gagne for picks/prospects. Weak FA market this summer so a team may be willing to part with something decent for Gagne at $3.5MM.
