I would be fine with Laughton going back to Jr. if he doesn't earn a spot this year. He will continue to develop, fill out and have a chance to play at WJC.
However, a lot of people on here, and more importantly in the Flyers' organization, think he might be ready now - or was last season.
If that is Lavy's call, and Homer doesn't trade away any other forwards before camp, then we don't need Gagne.
That decision - if it hasn't already been made - will have to wait for camp, in which case so might Gagne for a contract until they decide if Laughton's is sliding or not.
