Gagner is the Rookie of the Month!

Sam Gagner is the rookie of the month in the NHL for the month of February! He is my favorite rookie in the league by far, and not just because his father, Dave Gagner, played for the North Stars back in the day. TSN link is here. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=231215&hubname=nhl

Gagner has been on fire lately, and he's definitely the king of the shootout! The Oilers love the shootout, and Gagner is the only non Finnish player that I can name off the top of my head who is as good at them as Gags. Also, he plays Guitar Hero, and gives very polite interviews.

Edmonton has clearly chosen well, and has recieved a lot of help from their young players (actually, come to think of it, most of their players are young) this season, as Penner is starting to pick it up. I recommed going on NHL.tv under the Oilers page and looking up the Skills Competition stuff. Reasoner and Greene are their usual entertaining selves.
