I understand that you probably haven't watched the Oilers all year, but Gagner has been very, very good. Our second best player in fact. The upside of RNH, Schultz and Yak are way higher, and Ebs has had a bad season. That sir, is why he is worth less than those other 5 guys. That doesn't mean he has no value either.

And we aren't running away with the season for the same reason your Habs weren't last year...we need more depth and more physicality. So get off your high horse.
Read both my posts....I realize it wouldn't get us one of your young four but IMHO that offer is a lot closer to Yak than Gagner is to it.
