Sadly, there's no way Downie is going to be in the mix... I don't think Stevie Y is that dumb.
Oh I absolutely agree that most of the Flyers board is overestimating Gagne's value by A LOT. But if we are clearing Gagne's cap room, I want it to be so that we can sign Turco. I want the return on Gagne to be almost secondary just so we can get an experienced goalie in here. If Gagne's return IS the goalie, and it's Smith, then nothing really gets solved in my opinion. I'd rather take Turco and futures then Smith and who knows what else.
