Moreover, what people should be excited about is this...hey if Gagne can win his spot so be it. It's good that the Flyers are taking a wait and see noncommital approach with him...not that they don't have much choice until they can place Pronger on LTIR..but still.
Honestly, who does hate Gagne? I mean that from the perspective of any hockey fan. Anyways, I still think the idea of Laughton-Couts-Read as our 3rd line is easily the most intriguing and probably the most fun to watch line for the coming season.

Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek
Schenn-Vinny-Simmonds
Laughton-Couts-Read
Talbot-Hall-Rinaldo

I love Gagne, but he doesn't have the room here with his diministed skill level (he's still good, but no where near where he was before he left).
