Well that could indeed be the case....but I think the Flyers would sign Bouwmeester 1st....then trade Gagne......so in essence they are trading Gagne for Bouwmeester.....which I am sure they would have done a season ago. And even if the Flyers offered Dean Gagne after signing Bouwmeester they would be asking for more than people on these boards are proposing.
