Good term for Oilers and $$ for Gagner. This year he has to prove his worth for sure.

Here's a "what if" though:

What if they try Hall at C?
What if Hall exeeds expectations at C?
What if Hall turns out to be a much better centerman than Gagner is?

If the above happens this year, as Hall has been at times speculated to try the center position, it may not put Gags in as good of a position for both a trade or for a new contract.

If Hall isn't tried at center this year, there are is a whole other range of good that can happen for Gagner.

This is his big test.
