Gagner's a far superior offensive player with more offensive upside. Maybe Bozak has the edge on the dot and defensively but I'll take the offense any day over the HF intangibles.

The ultimate dealbreaker is that the Oilers have Gagner's rights after the year while Bozak is a UFA. Gagner has more trade value than Bozak and it's not really close although the difference between Gardiner and a 2nd is even more significant.
far superior? gagner hasn't scored more than 50 points a season in the NHL and bozak's numbers are almost identical. care to explain how gagner is far superior offensively? because the numbers certainly don't support your claim.

winning faceoffs and playing big minutes on the PK of a team top 10 in GA isn't "HF intangibles". infact, those stats are quite tangible. maybe you should look up what that word actually means.
