Peverly does not play more sheltered minutes. He manages to get similar point totals to Gagner while playing a defensive role with defensive players. Gagner was and always has been used in a sheltered minutes offensive role. Peverly can PK, he can play a shutdown role, Like what Horcoff used to be before he wore out.

Peverly being 7 years older is actually not a bad thing. He has learnt a lot of things that have made him a complete player. Something Sammy is not.

But like I said Peverly isn't the answer.
