Gagner put up a respectable amount of points over a stretch of games. Note however, that he is currently in the process of regressing back to his typical pace. A trend that started just as the games became important.

He still can't win face offs. He still can't play defense. He's a decent top 6 winger. The fact that the Oilers list him in the program as a center does not make it so.

Somehow, I'm not that worried about replacing him at 2C. In a 200 ft game I doubt even Lander would do much worse.
