I agree with everything you said. I think it comes down to one of Gagne, Hall, or Fedotanko comes back for next year. IMO I would take Hall over the two of them. You can still slot Hall on the wing on the 4th line during even strength situations and have him play center on the PK. He also be the cheapest of the 3 too. Eventually I would want to take Giroux off the PK and have a good faceoff guy who's defensively responsible to replace him and Hall fits the bill.
