I guess people just don't see what we in Halifax see in Gillard, so I'll never win that argument. It's tough to justify how good a player is when he scored 0 goals and 14 assists as an 18yo, and then sat out almost the whole year as a 19yo. So I can understand why people would think Gagné is worth it.
One thing that makes comparison tricky s well is that they bring a different game. Gagne is speed and finesse, PP QB. Gillard is more of a defensive Dman who can hit.

That being said, I don't follow whether the debate is on which is better, or if Gagne would be worth the asking price. If its about the player themselves, if you take the SJ fans and Hali fans out of it there's no way on my mind Gagne doesn't get the nod.
