We have a soild core of forward who can play at both ends and we are young. With Gagne being moved it is clearly a deal that was needed for the future, I love Gags but not at the cost of Giroux or JVR or Carter.
...you realize we ADDED salary for future seasons (when Giroux or JVR or Carter may be lost), right? Gagne was our cap relief contract to re-sign Giroux and JVR... he's gone now, and we have Walker, Meszaros, Shelley, and Leighton on our books going into that offseason.

Gagne was gone after next year unless he took a major pay cut, which is fine... but not like this, and not while making your situation next summer worse.
