He makes 80M in the first 6 years of the deal. And you think Weber is going want to be there for a rebuild?

You're not sure you'd do it?

The only reason Oilers fans don't want Gagner as their 2nd line center is because of the type of players they already have in their top 6. So we sacrifice Eberle to downgrade on Gagner and add a Dman that hasn't proved a whole lot in the NHL yet(not his fault. He's young). Plus the Oilers add a top 10 pick?
If we are rebuilding then we have the best defensman in his prime and one of the best goalies in the league to start out. Plus Forsberg and a top 5 pick. If Weber doesn't like us rebuilding then he has his whole career to make our team better. We either trade him for an astronomical price or he stays.
