Its not about Gagner's point streak, its about the team winning games and to do this, they need a more effective top six scoring meaningful goals. Many of his points are meaningless and 2nd assists, they are not = wins.
You lost me here. In the NHL, there aren't "meaningless" goals. There are definitely goals that hold more value in situation then others, but given how important goal scoring is and how hard it is to actually do, to call some goals "meaningless" is just false, and suggested a pre-existing bias.
