I'm not opposed to this, and in many ways it makes a lot of sense given the team's glut of young centers.

However, there is a huge difference between Gagne & Briere and it all comes down to one little letter, the letter M, as in NMC vs NTC.

We can threaten Gagne with waiving him if he doesn't agree to a trade. We can't do the same with Briere. Also, Briere would be EXTREMELY picky about where he goes, as he has a lot of years left on that contract but clearly wants a cup very badly. Gagne can go to a team for a year and then pick the right situation for himself.

I just don't see it happening.

If it were up to me, I'd still see if I can't get somone to majorly overpay for Carter.
