This is what it is. Only way this deal turns out bad is if our LW depth takes a monstrous injury hit and we're forced to play guys in the top six that shouldn't even be in the NHL.
Lombardi did Gagne a huge favor here. Gagne has had a pretty terrific career outside of his injury woes and is a respected veteran with a good attitude. He's healthy and should be playing in the NHL right now in a regular scoring role. He wasn't getting that in LA, so Lombardi sent him back to a former team in which he could. I'm okay with this.
This continues to open up the possibility of DL going after a big name (likely defenseman) at the deadline. Bouwmeester is a possibility and it may take less to nab him than you'd initially believe.
