I think Gagner is much more than a 40 point player. His pace was great this year and I still think he's improving. The guys only 23 years old and he's got heart. That being said, he's not an exact perfect fit for our team. If we can add a bit of size in our bottom six I can live with him still being on the team though, he's an Oiler through and through. Despite agreeing that he's not the best fit at this point, I still think he's a great player.
