The #3C can't win faceoffs for both of our top lines in the offensive zone and they can't play somewhat defensively reliable hockey for our top 2 centers either. I don't expect our top 2 C's to shutdown opposing team's top lines but they NEED to be better than what Gagner is. At the very LEAST, one of the 2 C's in our top 2 need to be better.
Aren't Gagners FO numbers around 45+ now?
