Playing With Sam Gagner

Eight players spent more than 90 minutes playing with Sam Gagner at even-strength last season.  Robert Nilsson was his most common linemate, with more than 500 minutes spent together.  Other frequent linemates include Erik Cole, Andrew Cogliano, Ales Hemsky, Patrick O'Sullivan, Marc Pouliot, Dustin Penner and Ethan Moreau.

Patrick O'Sullivan 126:56 1.89 2.84 -0.95 -8 .942 4.3
Marc Pouliot 120:05 4.00 1.50 +2.50 +15 .953 11.1
Dustin Penner 111:52 3.22 2.15 +1.07 -25 .950 10.9
Ethan Moreau 105:02 1.71 2.86 -1.15 -16 .914 8.1


The chart above shows the majority of the relevant even-strength statistics, taken from hockeyanalysis.com and timeonice.com.  Two players had both a positive Corsi and a positive goal differential while playing with Sam Gagner: the departed Erik Cole, and the underrated Marc Pouliot.  Playing with him this season will be an impossibility for one, and quite unlikely for the other.

 

Gagner's "Kid Line" linemates both had rather decent underlying numbers playing with him - at least, compared to their numbers from a year ago.  Cogliano managed a positive Corsi playing with Sam Gagner, and Robert Nilsson was just barely in the red. 

Surprisingly, Gagner was less effective with Hemsky and Penner; at a guess he was facing top opposition while with Hemsky and suffered because of it.
