Should be noted that this is exactly why a smart agent would not allow his RFA client to sign until right before arbitration. Maximum leverage is going to be right before the arbitration date (Oilers will need to put forth their best offer to sign him or risk losing him in a year), if Gagner signs long-term that will be when he does so.
