Handzus and Gagne back to Philly

Handzus-Good defensively, good passer, big center, makes a lot of sense to me.

Gagne- This one is obvious, brings goal scoring lost with the Carter trade, leadership.

Gagne-Giroux-Voracek
JVR-Handzus-Briere
Leino-Schenn-Simmonds

Do not want.

Heard he's been pretty awful lately for the Kings.

Yeah, I basically assumed they'd be in on Gagne. Add those two and all of the sudden it looks like a really good team.

Handzus wasnt bad for the Kings but he definitely lost a step. He can still PK and win faceoffs really well. I think he is a 4th liner at this point in his career and i wouldnt be against it if the Kings brought him back for another year.

Zus has lost more than a step. Nothing more then a 4th liner at this point

Zus did play some very effective hockey with Simmonds while he was in LA. They have good chemistry.

He still brings quite a bit, even though his numbers are down. For a smaller contract, he still can be a solid pickup.

Why would anyone not want Simon Gagne? 50 point player on a bad year, Gagne has scored 41 and 47 goals before. He would be the perfect winger for Kesler... what? I can dream can't I?

I'd add upshall to that mix as well. Guy loved being a flyer, and would probably not be that expensive. That is unless carter is his buddy and he wants to stay in CBJ with him.

He loved being a Flyer when he hung out with Richards, Carter and Lupul but they are all not there anymore so who knows if he would love to be a Flyer anymore

Why did you put "speculation" if its not speculation. No one thinks this is gonna happen its just a proposal of something that you want to happen

Neither will be coming back to Philly. Zeus is too slow to run our 3rd line and shut down the likes Crosby and Ovi.

Gags will NEVER sign in Philly again after Holmgren basically told him to "go find a team that wants you becasue we don't."

So Holmgren's master plan is to trade his two best players for futures, overpay a good-but-not-great goalie, and then bring back guys from the past that they never won anything with? Brilliant.

you dont want Handzus in your top 6, hes lost so much speed, definately a 3rd/4th liner now, who you primarily want for the defensive side of things. Simmonds did seem to play his best hockey alongside Zeus however

Gagne was money in 09-10, very impressive in the finals as well. The guy had wings. They need him.

I'm sure he said that. It wasn't about his 5 million dollar cap hit.
