I like this trade. I think Gagne is a better veteran leader than Briere since he plays defense and can be a good mentor for Couturier, as they play a more similar two-way game. I think Briere's days here are numbered, whether thru trade or buyout. Hopefully he won't veto a trade. Depending on how he plays, the Flyers might be able to sign Gagne for after this year for cheap to play on the third line. Next year:

Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek
Read-Schenn-Simmonds
Gagne-Couturier-Laughton
