I would say no chance of them trading him. If the + is Yakupov or Eberle they might not hang up the phone at least.

There were 25 players traded last year before July 1st, so there is always a mini-flurry before the 1st.
Like the Kings with Clifford, that seems to fit the above description. But I agree with the return a bottom six guy and maybe prospect or pick if we are lucky. But if the Oil do not eat part of Gagner's ugly contract then forget about the pick/prospect, a big physical bottom six guy is about all one could hope for IMO. I still think Gags probably has a little less value after the season.
