Tampa Bay Lightning will retain salary in Sam Gagner trade

After sending Teddy Purcell to the Edmonton Oilers for Sam Gagner, Tampa Bay Lightning GM Steve Yzerman's day wasn't over. He quickly flipped Gagner to the Arizona Coyotes, along with winger BJ Crombeen, for a 6th round pick in 2015. That seems like a pittance for Gagner and Crombeen, but this is a pure salary dump move and Arizona has an internal cap to worry about. You're not going to get full value for assets everyone knows you don't actually want. Futhermore: FYI that Tampa Bay is retaining 1/3 of Gagner's salary in trade to Arizona — Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) June 30,...

Tampa Bay Lightning obtain Sam Gagner from Edmonton Oilers for Teddy Purcell

Has the Lightning obtained the center with the sole intention to buy him out? Will the same be done for Teddy Purcell by Edmonton? The Tampa Bay Lightning have obtained center Sam Gagner from the Edmonton Oilers for RW Teddy Purcell.  It's not the movement of Purcell that surprises as so much the destination and the return for him... Gagner.  Gagner makes $300,000 more than the RW Purcell; his contract length is for two more seasons at an average of $4.8 million a year. This also somewhat confuses the team's forward situation - Gagner is a center and the club already carries four...

Matheson: Sam Gagner a class act who deserved better with the Edmonton Oilers

Before we say Sam Gagner didn’t pan out with the Edmonton Oilers, now that he’s been traded to Tampa for Teddy Purcell then quickly off-loaded to Arizona for a 2015 stocking-stuffer draft pick in a cap move, who failed who here?

Plan A for the Edmonton Oilers should be to have Leon Draisaitl play one more year of major junior hockey

The Edmonton Oilers have not been shy in the past about having their top draft pick play in the NHL as an 18-year old, and that attitude doesn’t appear to have changed. Sam Gagner, Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail …
