Gagner has never hit 50 points. In his five years, he has hit 49, 41, 41, 42, 47 points.
Oshie isn't a bad comparable - who has hit 39, 48, 41, 54 but in fewer games than Sam. So Oshie's ppg is higher than Gagner.
The problems isn't the dollars it's the term.
What is Sam Gagner? Is he a 50 point centre? Is he a 60 point centre? Can he handle tougher opposition? He hasn't so far.
If the Oilers were to offer a 5 year term, at what - $4 million per. Those are Oshie like numbers - is Sam Gagner as good?
