It's the freakin' NHL not Peewee, 6 years to get respectable and he's still not there so the excuses are flying like this is a damn airport.

Poor Gagner, at 23 or 24 he has to be babysat on the dot until he gets his training wheels off.

How many of our other players stopped playing while the puck was headed our way? He had more than 1 bad defensive play and apparently people are going to need to start documenting them with video evidence to MAYBE get some of Sam's biggest boosters to admit that he still needs work. Hell I recall RNH getting burned more than once and he is a much better defensive player than Sam. He made the NHL because of good OFFENSIVE positioning and thinking the offensive game at a higher level than most 18 year olds. Couple that with us being starved for offense and you have Gagner's rookie year.

And what flavor of pudding are you selling? The -6 flavor?


You're right, athletes NEVER get overpaid!

When has anyone with any kind of credibility said that he is a serious contender for the C?

Yes because coaches never have personal favorites that they play more often than other coaches would.....

Docter? I assume you mean his fiancee? From what I did see she is a good looker, good for him. That said have you seen many below average looking women with 20 something millionaires? The kid is already loaded beyond most of our dreams at the ripe old age of 24 or 25, not hard for a kid like that to get attractive looking women. Hopefully she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside and they have a long and happy life together.

You're right, the kid is great offensively, defensively, at faceoffs, the best fighter on the team, the smartest guy on the team, the best looking guy on the team, rescues kittens from tall trees and he craps strawberry sherbert. He is a perfect player and human being, how dare I or anyone else criticize any part of his game?

wtf does the bolded even mean? And now we are comparing Gagner to Gretzky? Oh well apparently as good as you think that he is this shouldn't surprise me in the slightest and I suppose I should've seen it coming. As for people who suck having zero "haters" apparently you don't pay much attention to my posting history or this board. Do the names Petersen, Strudwick, Stortini, Foster, O'Sullivan, Cross, etc. ring any bells?

He is an above average offensive 2nd line center and a below average defensive and faceoff performer for a 2nd line center, why can't you admit this or that he has any weaknesses in his game?
Why reply like that? Think of your reader's why don't you.

I have admitted his weaknesses on numerous occasions. He is above average offensively and average defensively. What is all the fuss about?

Still can not admit it yourself can you? Because you seemed to ignore the questions altogether and made my eye's go cross eyed trying to make sense of it all.
