winning faceoffs and playing big minutes on the PK of a team top 10 in GA isn't "HF intangibles". infact, those stats are quite tangible. maybe you should look up what that word actually means.
22) Gagner 14 gp, 4 g, 11a, 15 points

90) Bozak 16 gp, 5g, 5a, 10 points.

I also think its funny people think gagner is soft. Proves they never watch him play ever. Kid has most fight out of all Edmonton forwards. Always battles for the puck, goes to the hard areas.

Its also funny you mention it, because Emonton's PK is currently fourth in the league at 87.3%, whereas the leafs currently sit at 17th in the league with 81.1% killed. The Oilers have taken twenty more penalties than the Leafs, and have also had less goals scored against on the PK.

According to your own admission, does that not mean Gagner is better defensively than Bozak?

Sam Gagner, aside from maybe Dubnyk, has been the Oilers best player this season.
