Give me a break. Gagner is better offensively, he goes to the hard areas more, he hits more, he fights more. Gagner is younger, faster, and bigger than Bozak. Gagner is also under team control longer than Bozak, AND has played more games in the NHL.

Gagner has been the better player his whole life, and is four years younger.

The Anti-Gagner stigma has to stop, Gagner is better, and will continue to. In terms of value, Gagner and Bozak shouldn't be close in any sane persons mind.
Gagner puts up better offensive #'s- and that's it.

Gagner plays more physical? Is bigger? Hits more? Where do you get this stuff?

Bozak is 6'1 dude. Gagner 5'10-5-11, depending where you look. Bozak had 117 hits last season. Sam Gagner had 21. The season is young, but Bozak is outhitting him by more than 2:1 ratio already. More blocked shots than Gagner, more takeaways than Gagner, one of the top dudes in the faceoff circle this year compared to craptastic Gagner... like, WTF dude? lol

And yes, Bozak would have better offensive #'s if he played inside a top 6 including names like Eberle, Hall, Hemsky, Yakupov.
