Seems like a perfect return when you include Fayne who is a capable middle pairing guy.
Well I guess you value them higher than I do.

Maybe I undervalue Fayne somewhat but I don't see Matteau as any better than Pitlick who's basically in the same position (although a bit older).

I guess having both Matteau AND Pitlick does double the odds of having one of them play a bottom 6 role sometime in the semi-near future.

I'm not the biggest Gagner fan (far from it) but I was still hoping for a more impactful player than those 2.

Saying that... it may be a "realistic" return for Gagner.
