I wouldn't give up anything of significance for him.
That is so unfair.

Often they target Nail Yakupov as well.

Another plus that nobody seems to notice about him is that he is a saint. Only had 6 penalties in 81 games last season, and 2 in 48 games the year before. In 2009-2010 he only had 1 minor penalty while playing in 72 games. While not at ROR's level, but for a guy who is very responsible defensively, that is amazing.
We saw that at the end of the season and in the playoffs last year.

Lets see... how many were traded? Yea... not that many. Well how about signed as FAs. A couple... however it's unlikely that Richards or Stastny was coming to Edmonton. Maybe one of Roy/Riberio, however those are not really all that much better than Gagner, who they shipped out of town.
