It's called a hot streak until he shows that he can maintain it.

He has value, but I still don't see him as our long term solution here.
In the same day and on another thread you indicated you hated and despised Gagner's play. Strong words. This being stated by you at a time when he was above ppg in scoring thus far this season and leading the club. In that same thread you called him a garbage player. . So why continue to try to defend your position when you've admitted your bias?

Consistency? " Back to that? Seriously?

With a player thats never had less then 41pts in a season, and is very young, its hardly a problem and only getting better.

Doesn't Gagner have 58 pts over this year and last in 86GP? Thats better rate of production than anybody but ONE player on this club.

Time to take off the hate goggles.
