I'd trade him for a guy like Backlund who is making peanuts. An upgrade at this point is not commiting cap suicide.
I agree and disagree. I agree Gagner is not a 5M player. I disagree that we can't pay a 2C 5M or more. If our top 6 players get a combined salary of 35-36M then we are fine. The cap is going to go back up to 80M. Schultz will probably get a similar contract to Voynov/Carlson/Josi, etc... (4.25-4.5M)
