He's only 33 years old. You sure there's no magic left in the tank playing in an offensive-minded system like Lavi's?

I wouldn't be so sure. I think Gagne's been dying for a chance to show he's still got something in the tank.

But I guess we'll see. No matter what, I'm excited to have him back.

Glad to have Gags back, if he can shoot even half as good as he used too I'm happy because anything is better than what Knuble is doing out there, plus how good would it be if Gags develops great chemistry with Roo, didn't Foppa say Gags was the purest shooter he's every played with?!?! Ahhh just dreams!!!

Briere played on different lines early on. Hartnell replaced Gagne (injury) on a line with Briere and Knuble at one point.

he still has that shot and is an incredible leader

hes been knocked around the past couple years but i still feel he can light it up given the chance, on top of that he's great defensively and the clutchest mother****er this world has ever seen

Here is the unofficial "condition" within the trade: third round pick if the Flyers make the playoffs.

I know it won't happen, but i would be nice if this forced Briere out of the top nine and possibly traded when the roster is completely healthy.

Harntell-Giroux-Voracek
Read-Schenn-Simmonds
Gagne-Courturier-Mcginn
Talbot-Feds-Rinaldo

Holy crap.

I always wanted him to be a career Flyer; at least he'll likely retire as a Flyer now.

Weren't most of his recent injury problems due to the tumor in his neck caused by radioactive goop?

Exactly what I was gonna post...he's smart, plays very good defense, and will provide excellent leadership for our younger players. And there's still a possibility that he can provide some offense too. Love it. Can't wait to see him play again!

C'mon, you always secretly dreamed for this scenario: Game 7. 2 minutes left. Game tied. Gagne gets a breakaway. Forehand. Backhand. Parade down Broad.

At least now it is in the realm of possibility-- minutely.

If Read comes back before the trade deadline. How about something like Briere + Talbot for 1st, 3rd and Peverely? Who needs a 2nd line center/winger in Briere?

Speculation is that this is all leading to a bigger trade and that it's possibly Briere who is leaving

Lex Luthor, a Penguins fan, stabbed kryptonite into his neck at an angle that will kill him instantly if removed.

But wait, wasn't he a healthy scratch the last 3 games for LA?
And several other games when the season started. Most recently, before being benched again ,he had 5 points in 5 games on Kopi's line. He's looked good, better than Penner and Dwight King, but for some reason , Sutter just doesn't like hm. Maybe it's because he's not a Sutter type player, he's not physical?

He had a tennis ball sized mass removed from his neck (which he said was growing for years) end of June. He said after the surgery that for thjis first time since 2009 he was pain free, not on 'lots of pain killers' and looking forward to the season.

I love Gagne, one of my favorite players and I wouldn't bet that he didn't ask Lombardi to trad e him when it became clear he was not in Sutter's plans for this team and I can see LOmbardi doing that for him, calling Homer. He's worked hard to rehab and in an offensive driven system like Lavvy's he'll fare better than in the Kings defensive system.

At least he cup his Stanley Cup ring and his name on the Cup....

Best of Luck Gags

There was a summertime article from a newspaper in Quebec (summarized here) related to it:

http://www.simongagne.com/2012/07/17...s-in-the-neck/

Quote:
(Quebec) While his teammates were still celebrating the Stanley Cup they won the week before, the Los Angeles Kings forward, Simon Gagne, was on a surgery table. The June 18th, he underwent a surgery to remove a mass in his neck the size of a tennis ball. For the #12 the procedure could be the answer to the pain he felt in the last few seasons.

For three years, Simon Gagne was living with this mass in his neck. Neither Flyers nor Lighning doctors dared to touch it. Ironically, it was another injury he suffered on December 26th, that forced the best Los Angeles specialists to look further.

“Because I was already injured, they [the LA doctors] decided to not take any chances and treated my injury like it was a concussion and they made tests. After 5 months, they realized that a surgery was possible, with a chance of a full recovery, with no subsequent issues. It’s been already 3 weeks and I’m feeling really good. I’m very happy I did it. After all, we have the Stanley Cup. So it’s #1!” Happily said the left winger, who was enjoying his day with the precious trophy.
