If you want to gussy that up with the same ppg nonsense that was used for years to prop up Hemsky into something other than he was, then go ahead. Just dont expect others to buy it.
You're not putting emphasis on the right points of the OP's post. Sure, he brought up PPG which is taken with a gallon of salt on these boards, but you're ignoring other statistics and clear evidence (by the basis of watching Gagner play without Hate-glasses on) that has shown he is on a progressive trajectory headed upwards. His development, at the meager age of 23 is going in the right direction.

I'm here mainly as an observer, as I've always been on the fence with Gagner (albeit never being a fan of trading him away at his age, and his immediate development), so I'd just like to hear/read what you have against that point that was brought up?

-- The point being his current development trajectory.
