What was he in PKTOI/G among forwards?

Not too much to expect him to be ahead of the one armed 19 year old kid in PKTOI is it?

Face it he got the easy mop up minutes. He was the 3rd option for PK C. If Horcoff or Belanger took a penalty he may have had to take a shift on the PK. It wasnt because Gagner was a great PKer that he got PK minutes. It was because the GM who built the team was a moron, it was because the top two options for PK centers got hurt. When Belanger and Horcoff were in the lineup he didnt get PK time.
Ya, its almost as if Horcoff and Belanger were our shutdown centers or something... The fact is, he's the only one left on that list going into next year (assuming Smytty isn't back), and will most likely see a bigger role
