The other positive is that if used this way Gagner will work out quite well with Perron and Yak. I think Yak would also learn a lot from Perron and help refine his game at this level. Perron being somebody that plays in the toughest division, against best opponents, and gets to the paint. I'd love to see Yak getting down greasy more. On a line with Gags and Perron thats whats on the menu.
Not sure if you remember some of Gags filthy feeds to Hemsky on the break. With Perron on one side and Yak the other this is now much more an option than with the unpredictable Hemsky.
