That's a lot of hypotheticals. The bottomline is, although Kane is nine months older than Gagner, he's still the second youngest player on the U.S. roster. That hasn't stopped him from exerting his influence on the games and being the most dangerous American forward. Gagner simply hasn't stepped up, and you can't penalize Kane for that.
