Gagner has been one of our best forwards so far, and it has nothing to do with production (which has been good). He has been more engaged in puck battles, has had way better positioning and d zone reads than years past, and as a result Kreuger has entrusted him with 3rd unit PK duties. I've always been on the fence about Gagner, and I know it's a small sample size, but if he can continue this throughout the season then I am fine with him as our 2nd line C.

Size in our top 6 would still remain an issue, but Hemsky is the more expendable player if that is the case. That, and getting beefier/tougher in the bottom 6 (Horc and Belanger can't be your 3/4C with Nuge and Gagner in the top 2 spots).

Bottom line, there is very little chance Gagner is on the market right now, and certainly not for HF's perceived value.
