Gagne was my favorite player growing up. I would love him on this team.

If we had traded Read, he would've been my favorite option to sit on Couturier's wing and expand his defensive training while adding some skillful offense.

That said, Couturier needs someone to open up space physically for his line. Laughton and McGinn are the better option at this point...coming from a HUGE Gagne fan.
