So Gagne turned into three roster players. Gagne on IR would have meant Homer would have had to forgo gambling on Z ($2M) and possibly not afford Bob ($1.75M incl bonuses, IIRC) when Leights comes off LTIR.
The feel good keeping Gagne sadly would have hurt the Flyers... That said, I know exactly what you mean, and my heart totally agrees.
The argument begins and ends with the phrase "expiring contract" and that's why that trade was so horrific.
