Michael Arace commentary | Jackets signing Sam Gagner is right on the money

Sam Gagner was projected as a top-line center with 100-point potential when the Edmonton Oilers selected him No. 6 overall in the 2007 NHL draft. He has since been traded three times, including twice in one day. In one of the deals, he was packaged in a swap for Chris Pronger, who was, essentially, retired due to injury. Gagner was traded for a contract.adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS"};

Blue Jackets | Gagner signs, looks to turn things around

Sam Gagner was looking for an opportunity to “re-establish” himself as an NHL player after a difficult 2015-16 season with Philadelphia. The longer he sat on the NHL’s free-agent market, his asking price dropping by the day, the more the Blue Jackets became interested in Gagner. The forward, who will turn 27 next week, signed a one-year, $650,000 contact with Columbus on Monday, joining a dressing room full of players bent on redemption after lousy seasons.adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS"};

The Morning After the Night Before: 2 August 2016

Hey, hockey is back next month! It's nearly over folks. Hockey returns next month, albeit in the form of the entirely pointless and uninteresting World Cup of Hockey. But I'd take the Kazakhstan 3rd tier if there could only be some hockey to talk about. Longest summer ever. So what's happening around the league I hear you ask? - In news no-one understands, the Coyotes bought out Antoine Vermette. What's he going to do, sign a league minimum deal in Chicago? John Chayka is picking up serious heat in the desert for this move. [NHL] - Sam Gagner didn't sign in Vancouver. Proof for anyone...

A former first round pick by Edmonton, Gagner has struggled in the last two seasons with Arizona and Philadelphia. However, some have identified him as a good value signing. We won’t know more details until the signing is official, but there will have to be a corresponding move at some point.
