I'm sure part of that is due to his skillset, this is a player who's best skill is an ability to use the assets around him. Guys like Penner, Brule, Cogliano, Nilsson have all seen the most success they have had in the NHL on a line with him. I don't think Gagner is the type of player who stands out for what he does, but makes his teammates stand out for what they do. As a center he supports the play offensively very well and gets the puck to where his teammates need it.
