Maybe they don't find somebody to replace Gags. They might have to get a stop gap (i.e. not a 2nd line center) such as Boyd Gordon. They can't solve one weakness without creating another (most likely).
I've read and heard MacTs comments since becoming GM. Gags does not sound like a MacT player. He is not a possession player and opposing teams outshoot us when Gags is on the ice. MacT stated that he had no illusions during our 5 game win streak because we were outshot in all games so he figured we would return to the norm.
I think we can read the writing on the wall. Gags will be moved. It might mean we don't have a legit 2nd line center so we may have to put up with Horc or someone similar in the role. Not ideal but what can we do?
