I dont know about that, Im not even sure you understood my point. I just dont see how he could be any worse than Fraser JFJ or Smac. Even if he isnt great defensively(-1 since 2006). What does a team like edmonton have to lose? They will be right around the league minimum next year if they don't take a flyer on a guy like Hagman. I could be wrong but I doubt any free agents will sign here.

If he doesn't work out he is gone next summer, if he does work out he can be moved for a part of the rebuild or kept for a late playoff run if needed.

Edit I dont think the Oilers will pick him up, I dont really care either way. I just don't think its the worst idea in the world to add a guy who can score 20 goals for nothing while there are still useless peices of garbage in the lineup playing every game.
