Edit: Had to drop back in and say, I have a strange feeling we are going to eventually end up with Gagne. He hasn't been putting up numbers in Tampa, but he has been playing in less opportune situations and with lesser linemates. I just see Lombardi taking a great interest in him at the deadline or this offseason in free agency. He was a 47 goal scoring left wing and is only 30, I just have a feeling Lombardi has an eye on him. Hopefully he has more focus on giving Parise some ridiculous offer sheet and giving the Devils the finger
but, in the end, I think we will end up with Gagne to replace Sturm as the next experiment.
Gagne has been a disaster in Tampa-but he used to play for the Flyers! Done deal pal.
