Gagne is purely a loyalty thing IMO. There is redundancy with him. Dude offers no size since he's become mostly a perimeter player and his defensive skills, while still good mostly b/c of his skating, can be replaced by somebody competing for a roster spot at camp..like a Raffi. Also, while he is willing to take a discount I'm sure he will still be a larger cap hit. Finally, his health issues are a massive concern. Again I see very little added value to the dude and if somebody says he has leadership skills..the additions of Streit, Vinnie and Razor again make Gagne redundant....

In short...PASS....but it seems they won't.
