Gagne, 29, has been placed on the injured reserve retroactive to Monday, but has the option to be placed on the Long Term Injured Reserve (LTIR) which would force him to miss at least 10 games and 24 days. If he is placed on the LTIR, Gagne's $5.25 million salary would come off the salary cap and enable the Flyers to bring in another high-priced player.
Jones isn't on the cap yet. He has to clear waivers first before he can be recalled. This all points toward Gagne going LTIR being pretty inevitable, but it hasn't happened yet (unless the media is misreporting it, which would be not at all surprising).
