For clarity lets again go with actual real numbers.

458 Oiler games have occurred during Gagner's tenure with the club. He's played in 418 of those games and he's missed 40 games in his entire career. From an Oiler standpoint this is as close to ironman as it gets for a forward. Name any one forward on this club that has played in 92% of the clubs games. Again Gagner represents a much higher GP proportion than any of the forwards in the lineup. This is value to the club. A healthy player. A rare quantity here actually.

And you really think he was playing the toughs on the PK? And that his PK assists weren't an outlier?
I'm unfamiliar with opponent clubs regularly stocking their PP with scrubs on the man advantage. Most pk time you are seeing pretty good players. Are you really disputing this?

Any port in a storm, Gagner fans. Hey look, this stat looks good! Proof! Proof!
My post as you know is a reply to people suggesting that Gagner was insignificant on the pk, wasn't any good on the pk, etc. You know that. Not sure why its a bad thing to present numbers that people in the thread were requesting or questioning.
