He got demoted due to Quinn not knowing who he was. Pat Quinn had seriously stated he had never seen Sam Gagner play. He actually stated that. Gagner was "demoted" right out of camp presumably due to size and assumption of creampuffery..

How many people are noting that even this past due date codger soon recognized Gagner was among his better players.
