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?
Oshie also brings a lot more to the table than just points. Can't say the same about Gagner.

LOL. That's pretty funny.
