Signing Gagner to a slight overpayment isn't going to be the end of the world and require the selling off of our best players.
it is not just about the money .. it is about having the right combination. Might as well extend Hemsky for 3 more yrs if we are keeping Gagner.. At this point I would take Stoll @ 4.5M than Gagner at the same price just because it balances out the roster better.
