The Oilers are giving Gagner almost $5M per season. Kadri almost matched Gagner's career high in points, and matched his career high in goals in a shortened 48 game season, part of which he wasnt even playing in the top 6 in his first full season in the league.
Of course, if you want to go back and see Sam Gagner in February-April of his first real NHL season - you'd see he had 28 points in 29 games. Now imagine Gagner asking for Tavares money after that.

But I'm sure a guy playing 16 minutes a night and shooting 17% will be able to sustain that scoring pace.
