Wasn't Jim Dowd also coming to camp on a PTO some years ago?
It seems that most of the time players are only invited to do somebody a favour (e.g. Jagr in case of Nylander) or to have a Veteran challenging a couple of prospects for the same job just to see how they react under pressure. In some cases it may even have been only to get the right number of healthy bodies for the scrimmage game.
They have seen enough of Gagne last season and already know what they get which is still a solid hockey player. I guess right now it's more related to the cap situation.
