It doesn't have to be a win for us now or later, what it has to be is not a loss where the team has a player undeveloped or worse yet gone in 2-3 years time.
I know there are many people who want Gagner gone for the sake of being gone, but a deal like Clifford for Gagner is not one we're gonna be happy with after this season. If it happens, I'm willing to predict that he will be a bigger minus machine than Gagner is on a per minute basis, which means he will not be here in 2-3 years.
