I would love to get Simmonds to Philly, but not at the cost of Gagne. I doubt Deano is trading him anyway. He would deal Oscar Moller(who has been unimpressive so far in the AHL)or kids like Kyle Clifford or Corey Elkins IMO

Well he did get into college. Granted, it was only UMinn.

We need someone in net though. I get what you're saying but the real sentiment should be: I didn't want Mezsaros, 5th d-men aren't important enough that you trade Simon Gagne for them.

Or 4th line goons that won't play in the playoffs.

Or goalies that aren't really starters (we have two).

It's simply amazing how he uses cap space from year to year.

Don't forget the 500K bonus he tags on to every contract.

should have signed nystrom at 1.4 to play with lappy and betts...that line could play 8-10 mins in a playoff game and not hurt you (thats how you manage cap...spend on people who can actually play minutes)

any line with shelley hurts you at any time

if were going to spend a lot ona goalie he better be a good one...turco, at least when i saw him about 10 times last year, was worse than leighton
