He deserved more loyalty than that

I have no problem showing a player loyalty, but when it comes down to it, you gotta do what's best for the team. We have no idea what is coming back (if anything, if there even is a trade). If it is Gagne for peanuts just to clear space for some chump. Then it is a bad trade. If it is for a decent player with a smaller cap hit with room for a goalie, how can you complain? Yeah he is the longest tenured Flyer on the team, but if another team wants him and will give us a better chance to win, you gotta throw loyalty out the door. If it was all about loyalty Leighton would have gotten a lifetime contract for saving the season last year. Same with Boucher. I am interested in seeing what happens with this Gagne deal. Usually when Eklund moves it to an e4 it winds up going down. Hopefully the pooch is not screwed.
