Of all of the kids on this team that are 25 and under I'd say that Gagner has shown the least amount of improvement over his NHL career. Eberle from year 1 to year 2, Hall has shown improvement every year, Nail grew leaps and bounds defensively last season, RNH played really solid D last year in spite of being hurt and not producing as much offensively, etc. That's not to say that Gagner doesn't work hard, but if we're looking ant on ice results as an indicator of working hard to improve their game, then how can you say that Gagner has outworked everyone?
