I think people need to simplify the thought process. I tend to agree with the OP
Gagner will be wanting 5x5+, and if he doesn't get it will go to arbitration and be ufa in a year.
I think there is 0 chance he takes another bridge contract, or takes a long term deal under 5M.
So this should be made into a poll question:
Would you rather...
A) Sign him to 5x5 Now
B) 1 year deal
keep in mind B) leads him into UFA where he could end up earning something more along the lines of Zajacs contract 6x8.
A)Sign him to 5x5
B)Trade as a part of the package for upgrade in some other area
I would not sign him 1 year deal and loose him for nothing next year. I prefer A solution.
