NO NO NO NO NO!

Gagne is worth more to the Flyers than they'd ever get for him in a trade. This, if true, is sad.

This roster did NOT need major changes, just some minor tweaking (goalie upgrade and 3rd pairing defenseman). Trading Gagne so we have cap room for Jody Shelley and Sean O'Donnell is not only a major change, but it's beyond ****ing retarded. Can ANYONE in the hockey world defend these moves?

Seriously, what the hell does Homer think he's doing?

It took the Brad Johnson ****can for Jeff George. Not sure we're to that level of idiocy yet, but we're getting close.

Jester now I understand your anger. It has to be brutal being a skins fan with that ownership. Talk about screwed up organizations.

Players I'd drive to the airport before Gagne:

1. Hartnell
2. Briere (Salary reasons)
3. Carle

I was hoping we'd see Gagne get a 5 year deal front loaded this offseason

Shelley for Gagne reaches that level without a doubt.

I would much rather move Hartnell. He has more trade value.

I've been a Flyers fan longer than most of you have been alive but with today and his dumbass deals, Homer is making staying a fan hard. I'm afraid to see what team we still have when I wake up tomorrow morning.

Someone's having a bit of fun (check the footnote). But, seriously, if it turns out that's the trade made for Gagne, Homer should be fired on the spot. I'd take the Jody Shelley contract 100000000 times out of 100000000 before even thinking about the Finger deal. And Grabovski? Yeah, he has talent, but he wants more money than he's worth and has been nothing but unfulfilled potential thus far.

You seriously could not make a worse trade. Then again, it's Paul Holmgren we're talking about.

Well, with the economy likely heading for a double-dip recession, the cap isn't likely to go up two years in a row. It's more than likely to stagnate or even go down.

With Giroux and Carter needing deals - and who knows what'll be going on with Leino depending on his next campaign - and the sensitivity of the Flyers' brotherhood concerning concussions....it might not be such a bad move, depending on what they can get back of course. It would be too disruptive for team chemistry to move him during the season next year.

Perhaps to the Avs for a conditional 1st or 2nd depending on if he signs and defensive prospect (and Radnor's own) Colby Cohen?

I'll save my outrage for when he gets traded. Not convinced it'll happen, he has a NTC after all.

Watch him refuse to waive the NTC, and Holmgren pulls another Randy Jones.

Maybe Gags will sign a cheap discount for the team that traded him? Maybe somewhere in the 1-2 mil range?


(I can dream...)

All time favorite flyer..

Would be sad to see him go.

Really is this how you treat a guy who has been loyal to your organization?

I forgot about the NTC. I really hope Gags refuses to go anywhere. Though, forcing him out will have to have some negative consequences in the locker room.

Well when the GM has no ****ing idea how to make ANY type of deal, this is the kind of **** that must happen.

Seriously, Homer has no ****ing clue how to be a GM.

Unless we get Harding, Schneider, or any other young, capable, starting goalie, there is NO point in trading Gagne.
