I'd say this : Gagne is 3 time the game changer that Gorges is even right now.
Gagne was a very good player, much less so now. As has been said, he's four years older than Gorges and has been chronically injured the last two years. He's no longer a top-six forward. Putting a Habs jersey on his back won't suddenly give him back his scoring touch.
A one-year deal might've made sense; more than that cripples our team's budget and roster space.
