Note as well that just because Gagner increases his pts total considerably, and increases his contractual value considerably it doesn't necessarily increase his trade value in the same way.
WE never seem to get trade value in stock here.

We've basically just set the stage for a Gagner increase in payment next year and depending on how much the club just deciding to trade him for much the same return they would get this year. I don't see the trade value increasing considerably. Just the contract price.
OR they increased his trade value. Of course his trade value will increase if he has a big year.
