and yes, $6M is an overpayment for a player who hasn't posted elite numbers yet. they're getting paid based on potential.

are the Oilers going to overpay Gagner for what might be his best year after a few ok ones?
You said he isn't going to surround them with depth and just wants to rack up picks. He traded a pick for depth. Didn't say Fistric was going to make them competitive. Just that it did debunk your only racking up picks theory. Traded for depth using a pick to do it, complete opposite of what you said he was content doing.
Hall, 27 goals in 63 games last year, which was an improvement over his very good rookie year, and over ppg this year. His boxcars get better year over year. Those are just the boxcars, not even including advanced stats that show he is taking on the other teams best players and out shooting/out chancing and outplaying them, before he's even turned 21, and still on his elc, not even making $6 mil/year yet. Eberle, still on his elc and had just put up 76 in 78 games. How many players that out scored him made less than $6 mil?
Who knows what's going to happen with Gagner, besides you and your crystal ball I guess.
