The definition of "legit 2nd line center" is very loose. Is Gagner a 2nd line centerman? yes, on the Oilers. Is he a good 2nd line centerman? No. Can he be a serviceable 3rd line centerman? No. Does he have potential still? Yes but the door is closing quickly.

Bottom line is that Gagner's value is solely on what little potential he has left. As it stands he is currently not a good 2nd line centerman option for a team to have. There is a reason that pretty much every other Oiler trade thread has Gagner in it.
