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.
There are going to be a lot of Cs on the market. MacT definitely doesn't need to act desperately at this point.

Completely agree that it's a good thing for MacT to hold his ground. If he gives Gags anything over $4.5M per then it will be time to start the fire MacT threads.
