I guess he’ll play on the fourth line and get some power play time? I don’t think Lombardi or Sutter would use Gagne if it was a risky move. Unlike past Kings teams, this one is operating from a position of strength.
I’m excited to see him play. And happy for him, too.
Darryl Sutter had downplayed the possibility repeatedly, but it looks like Simon Gagne’s long wait is over. After missing most of the season due to concussion symptoms, the star left wing will take the ice in the Stanley Cup Final.
- He’d been out for months before he began practicing again recently. What’s his conditioning like?
- He still has a heck of a shot.
- Where do you think he slots in? Brad Richardson’s fourth line minutes? Power play time? An even bigger role?
- Whatever happens, I’m rooting for him.
