lousy, lousy move by Holmgren.

but no Holmgren had to have his 1.5 million dollar minor league goalie, his lousy enforcer on a bad cap hit and Mezsaros.
Could of traded Carle. or Hartnell. Why would Gagne want to come back after getting disrespected by this organization?
Salary dump my ass.
It wasn't a lousy move at all and time is only vindicating him further. Here's a note though, Meszaros (spell it right), Carle and Hartnell are ALL out performing Gagne. Holmgren wanted to keep them over him for sure but for damn good reason, they're better players and earning less.

Salary dump, your ass or not.

That's the thing though bud. Gagne isn't a solid 2 way player, at least not any more. He's a good defensive player who is providing 30 points max.

I know you love Gagne, we all do. It's not 2004 any more though, that Gagne is long gone and we were wise to move him on and use the space to improve the team. That's exactly what we did.
