Disagree.

It just doesn't happen here. With this management especially.

This is not a club that drives trade value, and this is not necessarily a league that gives it.


The Oilers seem to think that this is Win Win, That Gagner increases trade value. But without realizing that they just aren't any good at horsetrading in the first place.

Any time this org sets the table for trading a good player for any beans they can get I'm doing a facepalm.

If traded Sam Gagner will be of greater value somewhere else than what we get in return.

You could mark that one down.
