I'm not sure how you can make the comparison. Smith put it all on the line night in and night out and would punish people for crossing his path. He wasn't the most skilled but his style of play was inspiring.

I'm not sure who Gagner inspires when everyone sees him check himself into the boards when Steve Ott looks up at him.
