Gagner has always been considered expendable for a bigger forward while Eberle has been considered a core piece. If Gagner outperforms Eberle again next year, do we maybe consider moving Eberle and keeping Gagner?
In infinite wisdom the Oilers just ensured that yet another longterm contract is essentially untradeable. This is what gets me. You just know they'll nickel and dime Gagner scoffing at as much as 5M through probably a long and arduous negotiation but Eberles agent got what he wanted immediately because, well, 6M even steven sounded good at the time for both even though one player is light years more valuable.
