So... injury is the only material on-ice impact that differentiates them.

- By retaining 50% salary, Connolly ($2.38m) becomes cheaper than Gagner ($3.25m).
- Toronto is more than willing to include youth upside in a deal in the form of any prospect not named Rielly.
- "Not washed up" doesn't actually describe anything related to the player's current or future impact.

Add to that, Connolly is a superior 2-way player, and the fact that we're talking about a short term replacement for an injured player, and Toronto should be able to beat Gagner quite easily.
