I suppose it is a moot point as Philly probably got him easy as they were likely Gagne's nr. 1, 2 and 3 priority if traded.

...but that said, I think there's a pretty good chance that people will change their tune on Gagne, and I would certainly have been OK with Shero sending LA a third rounder simply to see if he was a solution. If not.... it is a third rounder. Fair gamble.

LA have Brown and Williams on the wings on their first line, Carter and Penner on the second. Gagne is not your prototypical bottom6 player, and LA are getting their mojo back with him on the bench.
