Pronger who had around 5 years left on his contract costed a scorer (lupul=ryder), a prospect(smid=kostistysn/perez) and a first rounder (what many of you are throwing around)...plus some compensation picks if ducks win the cup.
So you think gagne is worth a similar package, in some cases even more...with the likes of komisarek being thrown into the deal? Gagne is worth more than chris pronger? lol.

seriously, what in the hell are some of you smoking?
ryder for gagne straight up is the most appropriate deal. due to the fact that gagne will make more money, and do probably just a little better than ryder in montreal. but unlike gagne, i don't believe ryder becomes an UFA next year...as a result the flyers attain a player that can maintain some security over.

the habs aren't the ones in cap trouble, it's the flyers. why should we take into their ridiculous demands?
Ryder + Ribeiro can be fair for Gagne
