Good deal, even if it's a bit pricey. With all the ridiculous UFA contracts handed out...don't really see how people can complain about this.

Even if the Oilers regret this in a year or two, they will have no problem trading him at the deadline to a team with cap space looking for playoff depth. Or they can just keep him. I don't think 3 million per year to a quality player is enough to hurt them when it comes time to re-up all their RFA's.

There's really no way this contract ends up hurting the Oilers in any way, unless Gordon pulls a Ben Eager and plays himself out of the league...
