There's no way in hell we're going to find a better 2nd line center than Gagner. I'm happy to keep him.
He's played for us through a ton of brutal seasons without loosing his commitment to improving.
Nobody should have been shocked over what he accomplished last year. More like we should've been a little surprised that it took him that long to have a season like that. I think it would be fair to suggest that he was rushed into the NHL.
He was believed to have a very high level of potential when he was drafted. Now that he's fulfilling his potential we'd be nuts to not try to lock him up for 5+ years. I'd be so excited if we managed to sign him for 5M per year.
