Overall if they think a rookie can take the spot I say go for it. If not just move Talbot up like they love to do anyway or sign some FA that will still be out there.
That being said, I highly doubt that out of all the prospects we have one can't do an average job in the #9 spot.
I'd rather have a sure bet of Gagne being at least average, over a possibility that an unknown is going to be at best average. Yes it's possible that Raffle, Cousins, or McGinn goes crazy and surprises, but in reality with those three, until anyone actually gets a look at them in consistent NHL action, the best you can hope for is average.
