The reality is that those that don't like what Gagner brings here won't like his contribution regardless.

That theres so much contempt for his play while he's above ppg and -1 on a poor club tells you pretty much all you need to know.

People will then bring out the consistency argument but he has 62pts in his last 89GP(this year and last) and definitely ramping up the pts production.
Oh for sure. I've been a Gagner supporter all along. It seems like if he was an inch taller, everyone would be in love with him. You couldn't be more correct. No production will ever be enough because he's so small at 5'11, 199 lbs. Not only is he over a PPG, but he's leading the team, and last I checked, was 15th in the entire league in scoring. Too bad that's borderline #2C caliber. A real #2C would be leading the league
