I disagree with most of the things you have posted about Gagner. He has some weaknesses, but you are grossly exaggerating.
Maybe you saw a good 20 game stretch and thought "WOW Gagner has finally turned the corner!" Then he was one of the Oilers worst forwards more often than not for the final 20 games of the season. Same player, same story. He is what he is. A small, weak, slow, good offensive, weak defensive player.
