Good, no long term commitment and it takes him back to RFA after the one year.
I don't think that now is a good time to trade him anyway since his numbers and value should spike up a bit this season with even more talent surrounding him.
If he can't surpass the 50 pt plateau this season (if there is a season) then there truly is no hope for him.
Fair deal. Surprised Gagner settled for 1 year. Hopefully, he has a solid year and either shows that he can be a viable long-term option as 2C or increases his value enough to help improve the team through trade.
How would that be a bad thing? If he has a good year than we have a future number 2 center
Could cause some cap issues with them also having to re-sign the big 3.
Honestly, though I expect Gagner to go at the deadline this year. I don't think this is much of a vote of confidence from the organization (the same org that gave a fatter, longer deal to DD who has shown a lot less in his time with the team than Gagner).
Very good deal for this year, but I have a feeling this is going to mean a much more expensive deal in the future. More evidence of Tambo bumbling along and not willing to make hard choices. If Gags plays with Yak and Hemmer and has a great year (which I think is going to happen), we just lost our opportunity to get him signed long term for reasonable $.
