I'd be fine with even giving several of the AHL kids a shot to earn a roster slot as well before throwing 2 million dollars at Gagne.
i love Gagne as well, but I am with you. let the kids play. I know some Flyer fans would love to bring back guys like Prospal, Zubrus, Umberger ect ect as well instead of playing the kids.
EDIT: Dont get me wrong, i would not be upset if they signed him to a 1 year deal at good money, but I just dont know if they can swing it capwise. Unless they dump a contract which they likely may need to do just to get Gus in
