There's a reason this guy was projected to go first overall in the 2011 draft.
Gagner has been put out there killing 5 on 3's. He's been a good pker, especially this season. His rookie season points wise will probably oust Couturier's for a couple years. Yes, he has size. Yes he has potential. But to say he's worth Yako straight up is hilarious. Yako only played 15 games and as an 18 year old, he's out performing him offensively. Couturier is also not 6'4", he's 6'3"!

Gagner + prospect and a second is legit. Over hyping a player based on potential is being stubborn.
