He had a double sports hernia 2009.
Groin injury 2009.
A serious concussion in 2010 from striking his head on the ice. Was actually unconscious for this one.
Another concussion in 2011.

There are a lot of scary injuries there, particularly the insane concussion history.
That's why I would take Gags only on a 1 year contract.
Still don't believe all the "healthier than ever..." talk. He may only 33 years old but his body is a wreck.

If he could stay healthy, he would still be a nice two way second liner....
