The hardest thing to do in hockey is score goals. It is even more difficult when you're a teenager. Sam Gagner is a young man who can impact offense at the NHL level (at a young age) which makes him a very valuable asset. If you're an NHL team looking for a solid young center, a kid who can make things happen even at a tender age, Sam Gagner might be your man.

The Oilers continue to beef up their blueline, have yet to land a bottom six forward, just signed Steve MacIntyre and are willing to give Sheldon Souray away for nothing.
The Oilers re-signed Jason Strudwick to a one-year deal, and they also signed D-man, Richard Petiot to a one-year deal. Petiot played in Rockford last year, the Blackhawks farm team and tallied eight goals and 37 points in 80 games. He is 6'4" adn 210 pounds and will be a depth D-man in case of injuries and should play in Oklahoma City.

This is Jason Smith. He's a good example of the time if takes for NHL defensemen to develop. New Jersey dealt him for immediate help one trade deadline, old-timey-coach didn't like the cut of his jib in Toronto and sent him away one other time.
