Don't compare Seguin to Gagner, who has never lived up to expectations and is hard pressed to get extended by the Oilers just because you don't like Seguin's production this year.
Just pointing out the futility of your argument. Sequin's draft pedigree means nothing now. If he was "highly regarded" by the Bruins then why has he been demoted off his line during the most important games of the year? I dont think comparing Gagner to Sequin is as far fetched as you think it is. Neither cut it as a center, and both are weak on the puck and are unlikely to win a puck battle. They both are offensively gifted.

In fact I would say Gagner battles harder than Sequin does.
