He's more at the Perron level. I'm thinking Gagner wants 5.5 per season when the max he should get is 5. Regardless of our C depth if he wants anything over 5 then ship him out.
What you fail to realize is that Eberle's "level" wouldn't be the same were it not for Hall and RNH, and that Gagner production would also be higher than it is if he was playing alongside 2 number one picks in the world all his NHL career.
