According to TSN, Gagner has signed an entry level contract with the Oilers and will start the season in the NHL. The article also remarks that he will start the season playing on a line with Cogliano and Pouliot.
Interesting - looks like Pouliot pulled the fat out of the fire just in time.
Penner-Horcoff-Hemsky, Torres-Stoll-Nilsson, Moreau-Reasoner-Brodziak, Gagner-Cogliano-Pouliot
Sanderson will be the extra forward? And if they go with seven D, maybe Stortini or Jacques as well.
I'm thinking Gagner just gets the nine games and goes down. I presume the idea is to use these guys like Getzlaf and Perry were used two years ago - soft soft minutes and as much PP time as possible but I can't see the kid sticking for the full year.
And Throesen likely sent down - too bad - one of my favourites.
