They`re overrated but they`re good-to-great players and they`re Quebecers. That`s already a lot. Just on the ground that we haven`t had guys on this level at this age for quite a while(Kovy is old and can be lazy and Koivu was great for the first few years until the injuries slowed him down).

Also going from Ryder to Gagne is not a small upgrade if you consider the difference in points and the fact that Gagne will be inspired playing in front of his people. I think that`s a great confidence booster. I`ve seen many guys that played better that they should have because they played in this environment(aka Theo).
