AAV of $4M for 6 years and an NMC seems like a truly fair deal under this CBA. Gotta be some flexibility on the player's part.
$4.5M per with no NMC should be the top end of the market for Gagner. If a team is willing to give him $5M per go ahead and sign him to an offer sheet! IMO a first and a third round pick would be the better option in that case.
I just don't see him settling for $4 mil/yr even with a NMC.
He and his agent know that the Oilers center depth is horrid without him and he came off of a career year offensively at least PPGwise so they're going for the gold trying to squeeze everything out of a desperate GM that they can.
I just hope that MacT doesn't cave. It would set a bad precedent for future negotiations namely RNH.
