I've long been a fan of Gagner, still only 24, can play both C and RW, above average offensively, signed thru the next 2 years at $4.8M so he wouldn't be a rental which is a plus.

I don't see why Edmonton would want Fayne since he's a UFA. Plus he's been playing great for the Devils so it wouldn't make sense to move him. Edmonton would want definitely want a NHL player that's still young and won't hit UFA status soon.

I'd say Gelinas and Josefson/Loktionov and perhaps a pick for Gagner but the Devils would be over the cap. That trio together would make the trade cap compliant but I seriously doubt Lou would want to trade away his forward depth like that. Gelinas + Josefson + a pick for Gagner with Edmonton retaining 5% would work but would push NJ right up against the cap.

Overall while on ice I think Gagner would be a good fit, it seems that NJ and EDM don't match up too well for a trade at this moment in time.

@EdmontonOilers: #‎Oilers acquire forward Matt Hendricks from @PredsNHL in exchange for goaltender Devan Dubnyk

 

 

I think Gagner's about to be traded, and Matt Hendricks is plugging up the 4th line center spot.

If that's the trade the return they got for Dubnyk, then now is the time to offer Volchenkov/Salvador for a scoring forward.

They were just upgrading in goal it seems - they also acquired Scrivens for a 3rd round pick.

Hes a minus 21. He's basically Kovalchuk with less offensive upside.

New Jersey may finally have a healthy top 9 soon, why not see what they have first?

I know Scrivens doesn't have very much NHL experience prior to this season, but that seems like a very good trade for the Oilers to me.

 

I don't think I'd want to trade for Gagner, either, unless it meant dumping one of our unwanted players. It'd be cool if the Devils could pursue Stastny this offseason though. With O'Reilly, Duchene, and MacKinnon all looking like they could handle top-2 center duties, I wonder if Stastny would test free agency.

Do you not see what team he currently plays for?  He's not good defensively, but we don't need every player on the team to be good defensively.

Stastny is a guy I'd sacrifice a live puppy to get on this team.

Do not want Gagner, especially if it's for Gelinas. Gagner has never registered a 50 pt season. From Gelinas' production thus far as a rookie Dman, it's not absurd to think that he could reach the 50 point plateau at some point in his career. I prefer to keep the big, hard shooting defenceman with offensive upside, rather than a undersized centre that hasn't had a 60 point year let alone a 50 at a cap hit near $5 mil. I know Zajac is not a huge producer and is making more, but his skills defensively and face-off ability makes up for his average offensive skills, making him worth the money.

Under the new CBA, 50 point players will be getting $5M+ per year.  $4.8M for Gagner isn't that bad.

I don't care who we get, but i don't give up anyone under 28. We need youth, we don't need to give it up! Spend free agent money to keep Fayne, and maybe sign Moulson :)
