I know right? We have Matt Walker and a 4th now so I dont know why people are complaining.

(this has nothing to do with Homer's amazing way of managing the cap)

I know the return sucked. We knew before the trade happened that the return was going to suck.

My point is people are acting like this is the first time they've ever seen a player for a team they liked get traded or leave or whatever. It ****ing happens. Seeing 1 out of every 5 posts on this board be about Gagne in some way and an abundance of people still rocking a Gagne avatar is annoying.

Yeah what's wrong with you people...not like this is the first time a career flyer who was popular and among the all time franchise leaders in points gets traded for a dude who's 1.7M salary is being used on snazzy suits that he wears in the press box and models on opening night....

Holmgren made another sucky trade...it is what it is....

It's hard for some to let go of a player thats given his all to an organization for 12 years. For me personally, he was my childhood idol (Im 19) and will always be my favourite Flyer. The fact that a player who lead this team to the SCF last year got low-balled because our G.M. made idiotic moves during the offseason is what's frustrating. It's not so much the fact Simon is gone, its the fact the situation could have been avoid with better cap management and asset management. In time Flyer and Gagne fans will move on but don't expect it to happen 4 games into a season. This is the first time in 12 years Simon hasn't been starting for the orange and black, for me its rather weird.
With that being said I hope Gags has a great game tomorrow and the Flyers win a close game.

It would be hilarious to go back through all the GDTs last year when Gagne was struggling through basically all of the season and look at all the posts about people saying we needed to trade Gagne. You could see this move coming from a mile away even before last year started. It happens. This is sports. Gagne is at that age where you get moved around a lot.

I'm 22 and I can remember every year of Gagne's career here rather vividly. It's lame we had to trade him. But oh ****ing well. Homer clearly thought adding a bunch of Dmen and Mez was as good as having Gagne. It is what is it. Bringing him up every post isn't getting Gagne back.

The other thing is Gagne will be in the Flyers' Hall of Fame some day and a more detailed ceremony will take place in future years. That honor doesn't apply in Roenick's case.
Okay, thank for the clarification.

Also, I would love to see Gagne in the Flyers Hall of Fame, but how likely is that?

Because God forbid someone have an avatar of their favorite player or an ex-Flyer.

I mean, who does that?

Well so far Gagne is off to a slow start with Tampa...2 games in and he has zero points and is a minus 3. Obviously it will be an emotional night for him in Philly....I think one of the knocks that maybe the franchise got tired of was that he would get in these mental funks for stretches ..then of course every other year he would have a nagging injury. However, come playoff time players like Gagne are invaluable just as we saw against Boston. Unfortunately he could not carry it over to Chicago..

I'm pretty sure its unanimous that he'll get a standing ovation before the game. What will the reception be if he scores? I think he'll get another good reception...unless the game is brutally close.

Gagne, we welcome you back with open arms. **** what Holmgren has done, come home. I'll actually wear my Gagne jersey tonight. If he scores on us, I'm cheering for him.

I think it's overkill and generally a not so subtle way of taking another shot at our GM. It's been several months. Get over it people.

Why don't you get over fans missing their favorite players...

Right. I'm definitely displaying this Gagne avatar because I'm hoping Homer sees it and it pisses him off.

Yay, I'll be home right in time for this game tonight. 4-2 win for us. Zherdev, Meszaros, Richards and Carter with our goals and let's say Gagné and Downie with theirs.

Their d looks pretty bad, hopefully we can exploit that.

I have a bad feeling the goalie (I'm guessing Boosh) will get lit up.

I hope gags does well, but flyers kick ass. Can't wait to see his reaction to the crowd cheering him, and the video.

People on here complained about the Upshall trade for like a good 9 months. So we're still got a decent amount of time before people will finally move on.

I would LOVE to have Gagne back, but I'm totally with you. Move on, we have a new season ahead of us.
