We have seen the "contract year" efforts of too many over the years. He is just too soft, too slow, and too small....sick hands thou...
Problem is, the Oilers have no 2C and there is nothing on the market outside of Grabovski. Whom I'd love to have, the MSM guys here have been shutting that down since he was bought out however.

Gagner knows his value. If he doesn't, his agent sure does. He's a 2C who's only 23 who will score you at least 40 pts a season, and has potential to get 50+. He's one year from UFA so he wants term. Something something, rock and a hard place.
