Just because he took them does not make him bad at faceoffs it means he was thrown into the fire.

Yes I said back checking and it was evident that it improved with numerous takeaways on the back check he even took a few penalty's for someone that is so weak and small. I can recall more then one. But yet you only recall one defensive lapse that happens to every center in the league. Its game of mistakes and his mistakes are not that evident. Him abandoning his position is total BS, He made the NHL because of his positioning and its rather good. He made mistakes its not any where near a problem area for him. Say what you want the proof is in the pudding.

If any of what you say is true he would not be getting paid like he is, he would not be a serious contender for captain, he would not have lead the team in ice time, he would not be getting it on with that hot ass docter, He would not have so many haters like you. People who suck have zero haters and they just suck.
I think this is a really accurate post. Thank you for taking the time to articulate these points. Since his first season Gagner has in every way been thrown to the wolves by this club - and they did it again last season when Horc went down and they needed somebody to PK and take all the draws. So Gagner got the assignment, and performed pretty well. That's what this kid does. He steps up and does what is asked of him by the club.

I do give BBO some credit because he's one of the few anti-Gagner posters who is at least open to changing his mind on this player. For a stretch of about twenty games last season he was posting positive stuff about Gagner. Most of the haters would rather chew off their own arm than say anything positive about the kid. Some of them even find a way to mock his eight point night
