There's probably a reason why a good #2 UFA centre still isn't signed, people. Read between the lines.
The only way we trade Gagner is either the return nets us a #2 C, or some other trade gets us a #2 C.

And by #2 C, I mean someone who fits us better. Someone who plays a more distinctive two-way game, but might play with less offense.

Right now though, Grabovski is absolutely not the answer in my opinion. Options, truthfully, are pretty limited. Philly isn't dealing Couts for anything less than a substantial return. Hanzal won't be leaving Phoenix and Tippett soon (and that team looks like a division contender). Eventually I think the 'ideal' C might have to be more Paul Stastny rather than Hanzal.

Still, right now Gagner isn't going anywhere.
