solid arguements guys.
Really? Because I've posted 3 quality arguments in favor of Gagner. I'd like to see you or any Leafs fan rebut them. There isn't really anything to recommend Bozak over Gagner unless you count the score of NHL games by faceoff %. Even if you do, I would argue Gagner has faced a higher average quality of competition in the dot. A few percentage points in the FO column will change nothing at the end of the day - this should be evidenced by the lack of translation to quality scoring or +/- numbers for Bozak. If you look at more advanced statistics like CORSI and CORSIREL, you'll also see that Sam Gagner, as a complete 5 on 5 player, is much more likely to push the river in the right direction than Bozak.
