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.
Gagner is part of the problem in that he is small, soft and one dimensional and goes on extended slumps. Not worth that kind of money.
