Gagner is way more valuable to Emonton than to us. Let's be polite and say both teams refuse the deal.
Threw up in your breakfast over Gagner for Eller? Must have a weak stomach or be an Oilers fan.
-Gagner is younger
-Gagner gives up a whole 2 inches and about 5 pounds. He's smaller but we're not talking Gerbe-Chara.
-Gagner has scored more points in a season than Eller has scored in his career
-Gagner's career stats prorate to exactly 50 points in 82 games
People will suggest Eller is superior defensively and in the faceoff circle which is perfectly reasonable but that doesn't outdo the facts above. Gagner>Eller.
Not to hijack the thread though - I doubt either team does Eller for Hemsky right now. Hemsky is clearly superior right now while Eller does have potential, is cheaper, younger, etc.
