The org was shortsighted in going short term contract with Gagner. With us drafting Yak and retaining Hemsky the table was set for this club having two offensive lines this year.
This was a given.
Also a given that Gagner would have success playing with offensively capable players and that he would get more of that this year.
The team for some reason didn't do a contract that factored in that Gagner price was going to go up. As many have suspected this seems to be geared to trade bacon.
A huge mistake, but thats how the org mayb pegged it. They just signed a Gagner for "show" contract.
Either that or management totally screwed up.
