My all time favorite Flyer. Welcome back Gagne.

This is great for the Flyers. He can still play and will be a great mentor for the young guys. I love the idea of him playing with Couturier.

I like briere but is it realistic to think gagne could maybe fill the production briere is bringing this year... I mean he isn't exactly lighting it up (briere) .... Asking if briere does end up getting moved

This is very interesting. I heard about the surgery but I didn't know the severity of the situation or how long it had been present. It does make me wonder if he just might have more left in the tank now than we've been thinking.

Haha yes he did. Non-cancerous and was supposedly causing him to have headaches.

I also remember when he was still a Flyer and dealing with lingering concussion symptoms he started having acupuncture on his neck, and said that helped him a lot.

In summary, Gagne's neck is a ****ing diva.

I'm happy he is back but I think people here will be expecting unreasonable things and start bashing him after 4 games.

He's been a healthy scratch for 6 of their 17 games. I don't know what the reason was because they couldn't get a good LW for Richards and Carter. In the past few games Trevor Lewis was moved to their wing and Penner has been playing more. I don't know if he was in Sutter's doghouse from the beginning of the year. He has continually played Dwight King on LW even though he hasn't played well and he kept mentioning that King was working hard and that's why he was playing so maybe he didn't feel Gags was.

so i guess that means Briere is literaly obsoleted ??

Probably...that's too far for my memory.

Let's pause and consider how terrible a Gagne-Briere-Knuble line would be, though.

12 isn't taken...well I mean it is by Harry Z, but Gagne will wear 12.

Gags has 0 goals in 11 games this season and put up 7 in 34 last year.
So... the question is: can he still score or has his offense vanished just like Briere's?

Glad he went to the Flyers, that's where he belongs. Not overly happy with the trade as I think he still has some offense in him. He is mostly a setup man now, and doesn't play great defense which is a no-no in LA. He still has his speed and is now 100% healthy, so if you have some finishers on his line, he can be productive.

Harry Z will be run out of Philly if he even thinks about keeping #12.

Awesome signing! Lost in all the analysis of Simon's deteriorating offensive abilities is the realization that he was always a great defensive player as well with hockey acumen to spare. I liken this move to Sami Kapanen's role with the Flyers in the twilight of his career. He's an upgrade regardless of any way you look at it.

Felicitations à Simon pour son retour à la famille Flyers!

This is dated material (Jan. 2009) yet related to the subject at hand. It's worth a read if for nothing else from a historic perspective:
