What the ****? Since when does a great player like Gagne get waived in favor of a lazy Russian pos like Zherdev?

At this point, almost nothing that jackass does surprises me. Although there's no realistic way that that could happen. Snyder wouldn't allow it. Clarke wouldn't allow it.

They've also done a great job of stopping horrific moves by Homer this off season and prior

Waiving your longest tenured player and one of the most popular players on the team among the fans and teammates without getting anything back for him, for an Eastern European with a questionable work ethic and attitude? Clarkie hates Russians, period. Zherdev is close enough. Russia, Ukraine, whatever, he was born in the USSR and plays internationally for Russia. It would be a disaster.

If this actually happens I will honestly never be a fan of this team and organization ever again.

If they were going to waive anyone, it wouldnt be Gagne. They'd waive someone of less importance that can get us under the cap. I don't know who'd that be, but hey... maybe we can waive Holmgren to get us under the cap. Would that work?

Simon rightfully invoked a clause that was agreed upon by both parties when he signed his deal. Now, the longest tenured and most beloved/revered Flyer is going to be WAIVED?!

**** this organization and the clown who runs it.

I don't understand how or why they would bother going through with the Zherdev BS without having a plan in place to get something for 1) Gagne 2) Carle or 3) Carter.

As much as I don't like Holmgren, I'm going to wait until this actually happens. This seems extreme, even for him.

I'm convinced Holmgren doesn't know what leverage means.

Agreed. There is absolutely zero chance that happens. It fails on the most basic level of common sense. Which Dreger seems to have none of.

Deserve what? They haven't found the right trade for him or the team right now. The original trade fell through and now they are trying to find another one. I'm quite sure if they get to the season with Gags, they'll be sending whomever through waivers to make room.

He wouldn't do it to Randy Jones, and Gagne would never make it to Adirondack with out being claimed regardless.

The worst thing that this rumor does is kills not only Gags value but the value of any other players (such as Carle or Coburn) that they might wish to trade to get under the cap.

Even if the rumor is complete ******** it does damage.

Homer, you are a ****ing joke for letting such a simple offseason spiral right the **** out of control.

If they actually did **** up that badly they should let Gagne's agent talk to every team in the league so he can get traded for future considerations and to a team that he might actually like.

I severely doubt he gets waived but, if he does, imagine the outcry in Montreal if they don't put in a claim.

Gagne will be an Oiler in 10-11 if he's waived.

obviously, i was just trying to make the point that if anyone were dumb enough to bury gags in the minors...its homer

gagne would definitely be claimed, which is why its dumb, bc you dont just give him away for free (if at all)

Gagne won't be waived. I would NOT get riled up about this rumor, it's ridiculous.

If Gagne got waived, I would flip the **** out. Talk about mismanaging assets, wow.

Honestly, I doubt that even Homer would do something as idiotic as waiving Gags.

Mr. Dreger, I call ********, you ****tard.
