Gagner 199 or 200 lbs depending on where you look.

Bozak 195 lbs.

I think that it's safe to say Gagner is bigger. He is built solid.

Frankly, Gagner is underrated and Bozak is overrated. Bozak comes from a proud tradition of overrated Leafs centers, belonging to the Alex Steen, Matt Stajan variety of bubble players. Burke could have traded him in a package for a quality player like Gagner but I don't think Nonis has the chops to pull it off. At the end of the day, Gagner may wind up belonging to the proud Oilers tradition of quality centers run out of town by overzealous and impatient fans. If we move him, we will be justly punished by the hockey Gods.
