Wing? Am I wrong or was it two years ago that he started on the wing (after a fall into the boards in pre season) and was brutal. Everyone kept saying, "Well he is playing out of position".

I don't see a role for yet another small forward. Trade him while his value is high- package him up for our needed top 4 D man.
I like Gagner, but I also am starting to question if he fits going forward. Biggest problem right now is that there's no one to replace him. So we either deal him to bring a d back and draft a centre (who likely won't be top 6 ready next year, so that doesn't work all that well unless we can find a 2C from free agency), or we trade him with other assets for a bigger 2C
