Ala Gagner.

It looked like he lost all his confidence last year and he hasnt gotten it back. I think what happened last year, how he struggled to start the season, in the Belanger triangle, Renney could well have ruined him. Some guys never recover.
Yeah that could be true, I think (hope) that one year of awful coaching can be forgotten by him. The thing with Swedes is their development system basically streamlines and **** sucks these good young players into trophies so they never have to work for anything or face any adversity. Then when they come over here they don't know the game or the players and they can't make it on pure skill and the system they've played their entire life is different, so they get a reality check and sometimes never get over it, but if they do, they become a fantastic player. I can't predict what will happen, but I don't think it's time to bail on this guy yet.
