For THIS team yes. We have too many of their types of player on THIS team and not enough of guys like Hendricks and Clifford. For a team like say Nashville I would probably prefer Hemsky and Gagner due to what they have and don't have there. Think about this for a minute we are paying $9.8 million in cap for these two this season for 101gp. 13-35-48 and a -33 with 51 hits from these two combined.

That is fugly. When they aren't scoring they aren't helping this team win, they aren't giving the team a spark and they aren't wearing down the opposition. We have too many of those types as it is and Gagner and Hemsky are the first 2 of that group that needs to go.

I'm thinking fantastic disaster.

Gagner has been pure ***** this season but putting 3 guys together that don't check, don't battle for pucks, don't work corners together is mysterious.

But not any worse than putting 3 number 1 picks together on the same line against the Minny wild. Won't that be fun..yikes

ps In fairness to Gagner the 3rd period tip was a pretty good scoring chance. Really got all of it and a dangerous play.
I'm sure this is what the Wild were thinking.
