Oh for crying out loud.

Gagner was 5th on the club in pk minutes 30 secs behind Horcoff on the whole bloody season. With horcoffs only apparent reason for being here is a thought that he could maybe play defensively, pk, and ownzone. Ditto Belanger who's only contribution was on the pk. Ditto Petrell pretty much.

Smyth was kind of a blackhole and hard to explain. The team thinking he could still be good in this regard.

But congrats on finding a few forwards with more pk time that were primarily known to be here as defensive players who contributed little else.

Anybody can look up the stats. (for instance behind the net) I've posted them here before. When Gagner was on the ice on pk the team did well. Best stats of any Oiler on the pk.

Like I've been saying Gagner made notable offensive and defensive contributions to the team. That can be stated about few forwards that were on the team.
