Don't give in MacT, it will be a big mistake if he gives Gagner a NTC.
This is MacT's time to set the tone for contract negotiations in his time as GM.

NMCs can kill a team. Worth doing only if Gagner is willing to give on both AAV and term length.

Gagner's contract is up at a time when player's don't have a lot of power. If he really wants $5M a year for 5 or more years and an NMC I think the Oilers best move is to let him test the RFA waters. Even just enough to get a sense of what the market is.
