Some past Selke winners.
Gagner has been a brutal to poor defensive player every single one of his 6 seasons in the NHL so far. We might as well bring Cory Cross out of retirement because he is almost as big as Chara. That should fix our defensive issues.

Sam has been much more engaged this season as compared to previous years and is taking a leadership role it appears. I bet he felt slighted when the team didnt offer him more than a one year deal and that he wasnt even in the conversation for a letter on his jersey. He felt he had something to prove, he was right he had a lot to prove this year. So far he has proven that he can put 20 good games together and make use of some of the very talented players around him. Ideally he is moved to wing and a center who can win faceoffs and puck battles is brought in or drafted (Barkov). A 2nd line in 2 seasons of Gagner - Barkov - Yakupov could be incredibly dynamic.
