Gagne has scored 34 goals over the past two seasons combined. His days of prolific goal-scoring are over.
He's only 31. What's the huge downside to a one-year deal when we have a ton of cap space this year? Even when he's in the lineup, he's been fighting injuries the past few seasons. We can afford to take the chance that he's healthier now. The latest concussion scares me, but I've heard it's nowhere near as severe as the last one. With good health, there's no doubt he's at least a 20-25 goal scorer.
I think he'll get nowhere near what you're saying, because he's awfully injury-prone, has a history of awful concussions, and doesn't score all that much anymore.
If he gets nowhere near that much on the open market, then why not sign him? Lower salary means low risk/high reward.
I've only ever seen you deride other people's 'out there' suggestions. Why don't you play GM for us once?
