I think Gagner can net you a top 4 d-man.

If you can get Barkov or MacKinnon in the draft that makes him expendable completely.

We've overpaid too many times for guys who have had good half seasons (Horcoff, Gilbert, Pisani with the playoff run, etc. etc. etc.) and they never end up living up to their contract extension.

Even the Eberle/Hall deals, it really wasn't necessary to get those done last summer.
You can't really put Horcoff in the "good half season" club. He had 73 points in 79 games in 05/06, and then had his 50 points in 53 games season. And he was near ppg overseason during the 04 lockout as well. He was on the verge of becoming our best player before he blew out his shoulder. He hasn't had any offense since.
