"All summer, the Philadelphia Flyers kept hinting that they wanted to offer me a new contract and I even told Robert Sauvé, my agent, not to negotiate with other teams," said Gagné. "We trusted them. We put all our eggs in one basket and we got caught. We never thought we'd be stuck in this situation at this time of the year..."
Gagné kept hoping to return with the Flyers up until recently. "When I heard [Tuesday] that they had given a contract to Dan Cleary, it was like a slap in the face. I'm disappointed. I knew that hockey was a business, but with all the positive discussions we had with the GM Paul Holmgren, I can't believe I'm not back with them."
Oh man... poor gags... business can be ruthless sometimes.
