I dont know how we can justify keeping both RNH and Gagner on the roster considering neither is physical or good on the dot. The people proposing handing out 5M+ to Gagner better be prepared to lose RNH down the road.
This needs to be taken into account, we hear the whole $5 million number, but we are buying 1 year of him as a RFA as well. Say we sign him for 4 years, the first year should be no more than $4 million that means that for the next 3 years he'd be making $16 million or $5.33 million per season. Where's the discount? Say what you will about Hall and Eberle but they did take a fair deal, Gagner making $0.67 million less than Hall and Eberle annually going forward is wtf worthy IMO.
