Last year the Leafs signed Komisarek and immediately moved Kubina for small parts. It does happen.

First off, that has nothing to do with the topic. But hell, let me make it pertinent to the topic at hand.

The chance of the Flyers winning was slim, until:

-Richards ended Krejci's season
-Gagne came back from injury

So obviously, it's believable that the guy who scored the OT winner in game 4 and the guy who scored the series winner will be waived to make room for complimentary pieces and Marty Turco.

But if it's posted on Dreger's twitter, it's gotta be true, even if it sounds idiotic.

Well, he doesn't have the credibility bank of Eklund, but I do feel there's SOME validity to it...

First off, the idea is completely illogical.

Second off, why is it credible? Because it's Dreger? Please.

It seems as though HFBoards posters have lost the ability to think for themselves.

This is how the Gagne mess started:
Flyers need cap space->Gagne makes a good amount of money and has had recent unrelated injuries->Gagne should get traded for young goaltender->Gagne should get traded for younger forward->Gagne should get traded for prospects in a salary dump->Gagne should get traded for cap relief->Gagne should be waived

I'll eat my shoe if he's waived. Gagne is a legit first line scorer. He's nearly a point per game since the lockout. The only chance the Rangers have at getting him, is a UFA signing next summer.

Personally, I think he'd be a really nice fit on LA, though they should try to get him super cheap.

So because hockey fans find it illogical, and it's reported by one of the premier hockey reporters for the premier hockey news source in North America, it's completely impossible.

I'm sure Dreger is just making it up. It's not like he has a reputation to defend or anything.

No way Ilya Bryzgalov gets waived, he is too good an asset, the Ducks will get something for him.

...right.

But it's not in the "premier hockey news source in North America", it's a ****ing twitter. What accountability is there for a rumor posted on twitter? To idiot fans it does seem logical.

Also, because he's accurate at reporting what has happened, he's accurate at reporting what will happen?

It's such a credible rumor that he mentioned "NHL execs". OOOOH! Must be serious!

Do you honestly think the Flyers can't get anything for him? No prospects, draft picks, nothing? If you just answered, "no", you'll see why the thread is useless.

Actually, that sounds like exactly something our GM would do.

While I do see Gange being waived as possible, I do not see it as probable, obviously.

To be honest, I think it's just a scare tactic to get him to waive that NTC. Dan Boyle v2.

Dregs doesn't post garbage. There is legitimate belief that it could happen if he's writing it. He's not Eklund dude.

You're just angry because Dregs is reporting something you don't want to hear. Problem for you is Dregs has always been very credible. He's not a rumour monger. He posts things that are more or less 95% a lock to end up happening.

The wording is important. If they can't find a trade waivers it is. He also posted that it seems they are waiting to announce a Zherdev deal after they move Gagne.

Dreger isnt lying, but that doesnt mean it will happen. Just because some other NHL exec said it has literally nothing to do with what Paul Holmgren will do.

I could say "My mother thinks the Flyers will waive Gagne if no trade is found soon".

Does that mean Holmgren thinks that?

I think the logic in this is that maybe Gagne isn't willing to waive his NTC so the flyers are dangling playing in edmonton to get him to waive it.

I don't think he will be waived, but I'm not calling Dreger a liar because it is conceivable that the flyers would put this out there to try to get a trade done IMO

Depends on how you define #1 center. He is the center with the most chemistry with Gaborik, and thus plays on the first line with Gaborik.

By a PPG standpoint, Dubinsky is our #1 center, coming out to around 53 points over a full season last year, though he has spent time at LW

When you have a 7 mil third line center you have to go cheap chemistry for the first line.

No, he posts things he hears from reputable sources.

I'm sure some NHL exec speculated this to Dreger, and he reported it. But what some random NHL exec speculates isn't a 95% lock to happen. Its just speculation, and Dreger is just throwing it out there.
