I think this is a ploy by the Oil ... make it look like he's signable then move him ASAP. I think he'll be moved before the draft. The Oil GMs have incredible success getting more than market value for players traded (i.e Penner). No different here.
There are rumors of him going to OTT for Zhinger ... that would be a nice move but EDM should ask for a little more. Don't be surprised if PHI gets into this to move Courturier or Simmonds. PHI is desperate too.
Gagner is a small center who may have some scoring upside but we have lots of scoring upside at center. We need big strong wingers. Moving him to Winnipeg and getting Winnipeg's 2nd pick and Wheeler could work. He'd look great with NH and Lander. The GM there is abysmal.
