And so Gagner has been in the league longer than Turris... Quite irrelevant to their current abilities.
You listed players, and I'm merely pointing out that the players cap hit is relevant.

Gagner might not be a great player, nor a 2nd liner, but if you look at his stats to his cap hit, he's an interesting player, to say the least.

As a 2nd liner, he seems to out perform many, and it appears he's been playing against 1st line defenders. Edmonton should keep him, now that they have a true #1 line, and see if his performance improves. If he's a 50-60 point player, is he better than many of the players on your list? If he's a $3.5m per year player while being a 50-60 point player (playing with Hemsky and Yakupov) does that mean he's an "acceptable" 2nd liner?
