Gagner kills penalties, and Eberle doesn't. They both play the PP.
The Oilers have a bit of a problem here.
They overpaid Eberle a bit.
To be fair he scored 34 goals in his rookie year, lead the team in scoring 2 years in a row, was a plus player and was nominated for a major trophy.
But the Oilers will be buying more UFA years for Gagner, like I said earlier his agent is going to have all the bargaining power in this negotiation.
