I say this as a compliment to him though. He is playing so well that he deserves a good contract and term but that contract and term for him just doesn't fit on this team.
He loves Edmonton, and his girlfriend (of 4 years) just got in the residency program (2 years) at the U of A.
I hope there will be Give and Take.


Sam Gagner
17th points center
top 5 PK for Centers
top 5 Pp for Centers.

Physical game;
Apples to apples
top 70 scoring centers.
one of 10 centers top 20/70 in Hits, Blocks, Takeaways.

So the centers
top 20
Points
PK
PP
scoring center top 20
Hits
Blocks
takeaways

Getzlaf 8.25M
Gagner ????????????

you look at centers with like production results they are in the 3.75-4.5M range.
hit the UFA market and it is 5.25M
2 arbitration years likely at 4M and 4 years of bought out ufa years @ 5.25M
4.75-4.875M is not unresonable.


The successful cap structure for playoff team forwards.

18M for your top 3 Forwards.
Hall 6M
Eberle 6M
Yakupov 6M

14.5M for your 4-7 forwards
Gagner 4.875M
RNH 4.875-5M
XXX 2.50M
2.25M

6.7M for final 7 forwards.

this years level of cap would add 6M for the forward group.
