If you're going to judge Gagne for his production during the first half of last season, you should do it to the rest of the team. And if that's the case, you should also be wanting to ship out more players than just Gagne. Let's be consistent here, at least.
He didn't do anything in the playoffs under Sutter. With that said, we are a Stanley Cup team we aren't bad enough to be waiting for an injury prone to make an unlikely comeback. What happens if he most likely gets injured again? As a top team we shouldn't wait for players like him, we should be getting rid of him while he's healthy cause its too much of a risk to keep him, put Bernier and Gagne in a package and you can get a great pic or top 6 back. Too risky given Gagne's recent injury history
