I think Perron and Oshie are viewed as apart of their respective teams' cores. Gagner is a nice complementary player for us, but our forward core is RNH, Eberle, Hall & Yak. This is a perfect deal for us IMO. With both Eberle & Hall needing contracts next year, we address them first, and then see what's left over for our complimentary players. If that means Gagner is re-signed great, if not, not the end of the world.
