Still, if not for that one game, he would have had a 39 point season rather than a 47 point season. Definately pimped his resume a bit.

Bottom line is that Gagne getting that deal distorts the market for all the other barely 2nd line centres and drives up the price. They would have been better off trading him for a pick and/or prospect and signing Grabs for less than $4MM, who has waay better numbers than Gagne does.

Gagne at $4.8 makes DD at $3.5 look like a steal and that's saying a lot!
