At least we had use in horc at fo and in a checking line but Gagner would be a healthy scratch eating popcorn if we are forced to upgrade his position, and as horc a contract who make him untradeable.
I can live with 2x4 million, to me its wasted money for a team who needs to get stronger and grittier to compete against the best teams, but if we dont find any option to him off season, i do that deal.
Gagner being 23 kinda takes that worry out. Horc was 2 months shy of his 30th birthday when he signed his extension. I just can't see him running out of steam. Maybe never reaching the PPG pace he played for most this year, but have doubts he's going to look tired out there.
