I agree Gagne is the better player, the only problem is, you have to actually PLAY to be a better player. Gagne for Comrie, right now, is fair value wise IMO. I would not make this trade in order to get Comrie. I would make this trade if a 3rd team wanted Comrie and we could get someone we really wanted, like Iginla. I know I will get blasted for this, but I would make this trade:

Johnsson, Comrie to Calgary
Iginla to Philly
Gagne to Edmonton

Why Johnsson? I don't want to trade youth and the way Pitkanen is playing, he doesn't play like a rookie. If Therien stays in the lineup, we then only have 1 rookie in the lineup, I want a 2nd. I would line up this way:

Brashear/Lapointe/Somik or Chouinard or Fedoruk

Therien or Vandermeer/Desjardins

I guess my only real question is, did Philly give up enough for Iginla, to much, right amount, or do they need to throw in a pick or cash?
