I didn't say it was okay, but its fairly obvious to everybody that that's what was going on.

They had a bunch of young players, they had traded away or gotten rid of pretty much all their veteran support. They were seeing what they had. If Gagner didn't like what he saw, he could have went to arbitration, signed a contract and became a free agent that much quicker. Nobody put a gun to his head to sign a contract. I suspect like most NHL players he probably cares more about his pay cheque than where he's playing.
