I generally agree with that sentiment, but I think Gagai could really add somewhat of an aura to our backline. Something we have missed since losing Hodges.
The fact that McCullough will be on 600k a season if he is back makes paying 600k for Gagai seem like nothing.
We will probably not re-sign Milford after next year. We should have a fair bit of cash to play around with. Meaning Gagai on a 600k contract for 3 years isn't the worst signing I could think of.
Just because we are overpaying for Macca doesnt mean we should do the same for Gagai. If he was 26 or 27, then maybe ( and even then i dont see Gagai as a $600k a year center ) but certainly not a 30 year old Gagai.
