So our offseason so far:
- Need a goalie...we keep the same
- Need a winger to play with Richards and Gags...we get rid of Gags and get a winger
- Need a #5 defenseman...we get 2
- Need 3rd line center...Jody Shelley?

If the options are Gagne and Boucher or Zherdev and Turco I pick the latter. I'm not saying thats the plan, just pointing it out.

so Gagne vs STUFF + Zherdev + carcillo + space for a decent 12th (we are assuming cote is out lol)


so it really depends on what we get for gags, but it will be worth it...when it comes to resigning roo carter and leino

EDIT:
hartnell has to go summer of 11' or at the 2012 trade deadline
I don't think he was complaining about trading Gagne. You just seem to downplay Gagne's heart/work ethic. We're talking about the guy who played through an intense amount of pain in the playoffs -- including one of the ballsiest moments I've seen in Game 4 OT against Boston.

This is Philly. If he doesn't constantly bust skulls, he can't possibly be trying.

It better not be for 4+ million. I want it to be under 3.5, preferably under 3. But that's probably asking for too much from Holmgren.

They are also saying that Nabby signed a 4 year deal with a team in the KHL.

Don't tell me after a sucky first week, that today things might actually happen.

If he is 4 mil plus and Gagne gets dealt I won't be happy. I can't see it being too much less than $3 though or he'd just stay in Russia would he not? Soft doesn't matter over there.

I'm really starting to think that FeedDaPuck broke something here. Homer was scheduled to meet with the media and didn't because of what Philabrite is calling "no new developments" why would cancel media for nothing?

He actually just retweeted someone else saying Nabby signed a 4 year deal.

But I do agree. Until a real source confirms it, I wont believe anything.

I definitely don't want Gagne to be traded, but if it meant Turco I'd deal with it at this point.

Knowing Homer, instead he'll deal him for a mediocre prospect and a 5th, and with the cap space sign Zherdev @ 3M for 4 years, Carcillo @ 1.2M for 5 years, and Powe @ $1M for 2 years.

Frolov might be lazier then Zherdev.

IDK, can't tell. It's hard to have a lazy-off to determine a winner.

It they sign him for 4M he's definitely Lupul 2.0. Of course being that he is 6'2" and 195 he is "small" according to some people

Anyway, another example of the Flyers running a halfway house for players with a questionable past. At least he won't be a member of the retirement home for NHL players we also run. At 2.5M he's palatable given that he would replace Gagne at least from an offensive perspective. The guy can get 20 goals pretty easily...not sure how many he'll prevent.

I'll believe it when a legit source mentions it. Until then, this is nothing but baloney.

Sure, as long as the price is right. Holmgren has been all over the board this offseason.

The thing is, looking at sports.ru 's past, they have been right on pretty much everything.

I might be as pro-Russian as it gets and I would HATE this deal. The guy has shown nothing but being a lazy player. Regardless of talent, this guy doesnt have a good head on his shoulders. When he played with Fedorov in Columbus, Fedorov said something along the lines to the media that he couldnt make this kid find his way, no matter how hard he tried. And for a guy like Zherdev to look up to Fedorov growing up, and not to be able to change his style, that might tell you something about the way he is.

Im not for this move at all, considering our cap space issue as it stands. But if it happens, I really do hope that Zherdev got his act together while in Russia because I know Flyers fan, and they wont tolerate his bull****.

Yea just saw that also. LeBrun also has an article on it.


That being said, thinking about Zherdev I wouldnt be mad at all. Lavy doesnt play around with that ****. IF Zherdev wants to be lazy he will sit. Lavy doesnt care. Thats why I love our new coach. People said the same thing with Leino with how he was lazy. Lavy made sure he wasnt lazy.

litterally anything that can be said for carter's work ethic goes for gagne's.

injury in playoffs:
check

(supposed) 2-way game:
check

all im saying is gagne tends to give up on play when it get physical, but hes fast so he backchecks well, and makes it look easy. but if he gets bumped, and needs to hold the puck or fight for it. he just says "eff it...not worth a concussion"

thats actually what i REALLY liked about carter in the playoffs, he was physical as hell (for him) and was starting to throw hits and use his size to help him.

gagne isnt like overtly lazy...hes just not the hardest worker on our team, hes about even with carter.

I do not think he is lazier. However, Murray did have a problem with him last season. Even benched him for a game or two. At the same time, if you were Frolov multiple X 30 goal scorer would you be interested playing on LA Kings 3rd lline.

I'd like to see a deal like Emery.

Short and cheap. 1-2 years for 2.5?
