We get that you like Gagner but give it up. If the Oilers want to win the cup they must find another C who scores ppg and get rid of the bust. Can't win the cup without two ppg c and if he wasn't your favorite, you'd want to trade him too.
Two teams had a pair of point-per-game centres and won the Cup. Five teams have had a pair of point-per-game centres and failed to win The Stanley Cup. 59 point-per-game centres have failed to win The Stanley Cup.
Sam Gagner won't have to score a point-per-game to win a Stanley Cup.
