I was surprised a player of Gagne's stature signed with the Kings in the first place. But he was coming off an injury in Tampa, and Richards and Williams were here, so it did make some sense when it happened.
He started out pretty well last year, playing with Kopitar. Then he stopped scoring with the rest of the team, got hurt, and wasn't physically part of the 2nd half run the Kings made, or the playoff run until Game 3. He got in the lineup, it seemed to focus the team a little, as they went on to win 4-0, the biggest margin of victory in that series outside of Game 6.
I was looking forward to a healthy Gagne this season. It just didn't work out. His name will always be linked to the Kings because of the Cup, so, that's not too bad.
