Well apparently MacT feels the same way with the NTC and all

It would be a start, if we got some guys that can actually occupy defensemen down low it would open up the ice for our skill.

A 2nd line center that in my eyes at least is part of what's wrong with the team, small, weak, poor defensively, coasts back on defense, etc. Arcobello has shown us just how "valuable" Gagner is.

I'd start by just moving him to the wing and put him in a position to succeed. Not sure why they couldn't have given him a conditioning stint in the AHL upon his return to get him back in shape first. His return has coincided with 2 losses at a 9-0 aggregate score.
If we can't move him then I'd definitely move him to the wing. That said I felt that MacT made a HUGE mistake signing him to that contract and I haven't seen anything to make me think otherwise.
