Sam Gagner

Gagner has filed for salary arbitration. Cogliano did the same last year and was shown the door.

Several teams seeking a 2nd line C...what could the Oilers fetch?

David Rundblad? Turris returned Rundblad and a 2nd but Turris had a contract.

Probably what Turris got, depending on his contract. Gagner is actually probably more valuable than Turris at this point. Turris might have slightly higher upside but Gagner has already proven he can be an average 2C.

Turris is still unproven, were Gagner is. Gagner will be signed, unless the Oilers get a replacement for him.

There's only 60 spots for top 6 centers in the NHL and Gagner has been in the top 60 every year of his career except 08/09 where he missed the mark by one point.

No matter how you slice it Gagner has had the offensive production of a top 6 center ever since he's been in the NHL (while missing games)
And he's 22. He dropped the gloves to take on Beauchemin. He has more value than people on these boards think.

Gagner is more valuable and proven than either of those scrubs.

Luongo for Gagner, 1st, and Klefblom(sp?)
(division rival given one of their biggest needs, moderate overpayment).

The Hawks should give up anything they want to pair him with Kane so they can activate their wonder twin powers.

...and the reason he is going to arbitration is?
If he does have value to the Oilers, why is he going to arbitration? Money? Term?

Do Oiler fans have interest in Anisimov? He is a young, 6 foot 4 Russian, 2-way center that could be a good piece for Edmonton to pair up with Yakupov. I'm not sure if the Rangers want Gagner in return though. Is Klefbom available?

only if you're giving up something you absolutely don't want to give up. Recent draft picks who's stock has gone up since being drafted don't get traded unless it's a big return.

You can't have a 2-3 center because you need a shutdown dman? Is this like how you can't have a decent goalie because you need another scoring winger?

I'd love Anisimov but I'm not sure what it would take to get him.

Klefbom is projected to fill a huge need for the Oilers, so unless a defenseman is coming back I doubt the Oilers would go for it.

Also why in the world would NYR want even more young defensive talent?!

I didn't see a "because" in his post. One doesn't have anything to do with the other.

Addition of Klefbom will allow Sather to trade Staal/MDZ in a package for Shea Weber.

Well they did play in the OHL together. Who cares that they were playing against teenagers? That chemistry from 6 years ago will not only still be there, but it will be even better because now they get to play against professionals and grown men instead of 170lb high schoolers.

Careful though everyone, Gagner is a one of the better 2C's in the league and if you don't agree, all the Oilers fans will have their feelings hurt so be nice.
