Ribiero has had 83,78,71,65 and 63 point scoring seasons and several others that top Gagner's career high along with 49 pts in 48 games last season. If Gagner and his camp are using Ribiero as a comparable, that's beyond laughable.
I think Bozak is a better comparable. Bozak is a good deal older but looking at skillsets, he's not as good offensively as Gagner is but is better defensively and on faceoffs so I think closer to $4 mil/yr is fair market value for Gagner. $5 mil/yr is simply way too much for what he brings to the table.
