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.
Hall and Eberle have set the pay scale here, Gagner needs to fall in line or get moved. If we're paying him $5 million next season and RNH comes back and has a PPG season, why should he settle for $1 million more? On top of that the more that we throw Gagner's way the less that we'll have to fill other spots on the roster with quality.
