I alway liked Gagner , But points do not tell the whole story , 40 to 50 points a year #2 center , weak in the circle , not a great two way player , he has improved , Not physical enough , will fight and beat up the other guys fists with his face . WE have skill we need to get tougher to play against now ,. Forget the skill in the next few drafts . Focus on team d and toughness and maybe add a high end goalie prospect .

I have been an Oiler fan since they came into the NHL and this is the least physical team we have ever had . If we some how had the 1st Over all pick this year ,it would be best to take Seth Jones , trade some prospects and Gagner for a good 2 C . Seth is like a young Pronger that can grow with our team and be a true number one time we are ready to contend for a cup .
All our high end talent means nothing with out a good physical bottom 6 , a real real Good defence and a high end Goalie .
