Seriously... you guys need to step back into reality here. Last year Gagner ranked 5th in ES TOI/game among Oilers forwards, 5th in PP TOI/game. In '11/12 he was 3rd in ES TOI/game, 6th in PP TOI/game. In '10/11 he was 4th in ES TOI/game, 4th in PP TOI/game. And he consequently finished 2nd, 4th, and 3rd in team scoring.

Everyone, including the Oilers, knows that Gagner (along with Hall, Eberle, and RNH) isn't the glaring reason for their disappointing goal production and team fortunes - hence why they're all still under contract with the team into the future (RNH likely to be re-signed next year, of course).

So you say so easily, yet struggle so mightily to present/prove.
