Gagner has always been a decent #2C. However, he's playing like a legit #2C with a well rounded game. Their are several problems though, the ever so present Is he a good fit question and the value of his next contract will skyrocket if he maintains this level of play like into the $5 mil/yr range possibly.
Can we afford to pay a smallish center that amount of coin and sign all of RNH, Smid, Schultz, Yakupov and Petry and still build a solid supporting cast? If Gagner continues to prove his worth throughout the season, Tambellini has a real difficult decision to make because i'm pretty sure that Gagner will want a lucrative long term deal.
In any event, i'm glad for him that he has found his game. He has always been a good trooper through the tough times so it's good to see him reap some of the fruits of his labor. Lets see if he can remain consistent throughout the season, maintaining consistency has always been his problem
