Clarke wants to pay less so he will get a goal scorer for the money he wants to pay and since Gainey has the cash to pay with this trade and and the unloading of Theo, a Gagne is affordable and as much as I hate to say I think Ribeiro would really work well with him and could have a career year.
I would hate to lose Ryder and would love to have both, but if it is for the best of the team I would do it! I think as much as Ribs would do well with Gagne, Ryder would blossom into a 40 goaler with Forsberg, Richards, Carter and Umberger.
These two players would be the focal point of a potential trade, what else would we add or have both teams add??? Philly wants to get faster on D, what could we offer them in that position...Dandenault?
Just a thought to go with these Gagne rumors.
Philly would be insane to do this trade. You'd definitely have to throw probably Komi or something that would potentially help them. I doubt we can afford to give the players Philly would want in return for Gagne.
And honestly, I don't really want Gagne anyway.
