Sam Gagner Trade Rumors


Sam Gagner of the Edmonton Oilers has been the subject of trade rumors for the 2012 NHL season. Gagner who is 22 years old has seemingly regressed the last couple of seasons. The center who suffered a minor injury this season has struggled to produce. The Oilers had high hopes for Gagner as being their number one center when he broke into the NHL at 18 years of age but he has dissapointed for the most part.

GM Steve Tambellini is not actively shopping Gagner but is reportedly willing to part with him in a package deal for a number one defenceman. On the subject of trade rumors Gagner says, "Those trade rumours are tough to deal with. I haven’t really dealt with that in my career, so it weighs on you."

The asking price for Sam Gagner went through the roof last night when the Oilers played the Chicago Blackhawks. He scored 4 goals and 4 assists for an 8 point game, tying the Edmonton Oilers' franchise record set by Wayne Gretzky and Paul Coffey.
