With that said I love Simon and hope he gets to play straight away in Philly. Wait to see him put up 20 goals
One would be a good start...

The amount of ****s given about Gags being traded by me is zero. He clearly didn't fit and I really didn't care of the return. Dean is pretty good drafting in the 3rd round and it's expected that 3rd rounders in this draft could be high 2nds in others so that's nice.

Best of luck to him. Nice to see him exiting with class and good on the org for doing the right thing by trading him some place he'd like to go. That kind of thing matters.

Doh! i must have mixed his number up with someone else's. That blows my argument over how much hes getting paid as opposed to what hes putting up out of the water...

In any case, he'll do well in Philly i think.

I like this trade. That cap space will be valuable come deadline time

Important to note that the 4th round pick ultimately belonged to Phoenix originally, so it will be based on Phoenix's performance and not Philadelphia's. Which means it may very well be a lower pick.

- On Simon Gagne not fitting in with Darryl Sutter’s system: “There’s just a number of things. Obviously you have a veteran player who’s game is clearly defined. He’s a very good player, wasn’t fitting in so to speak. That said, this is still a good NHL player who has proven it on a good team. So, you don’t look at it …unless you feel very comfortable with what you have coming through the minors. Not the same thing, but it’s similar when you move Jack Johnson for Carter because you know you have Voynov coming through. We feel pretty good about our depth up front in the system. So that opens up a roster spots. That’s one of the things very underestimated in juggling, particularly in this shortened season, is juggling roster positions and having access to players. This frees up a roster spot, allows us some flexibility, and obviously gives us some flexibility in terms of space and cash at the deadline.

- On if Gagne asked for a trade and the Flyers being the only ones in the mix: “No he didn’t. He didn’t, but…So no at this point, having done it today…Although…So secondly as far as (unintelligible) and I, this is a good player who I’ve known a long time. And I know if he wanted to go anywhere, that would be the place he wanted to go. So I figured his. The word was probably was around a third at the deadline if I wanted to do it then. So kind of did it a way that it’s got a contingency of a fourth to a third. So I was satisfied with that, and putting him in a place that I know he’d be happy. This is a player that came to us as a free agent. So he chose us at the time. So given that we had to do this and I have a choice, I was certainly going to put him where I know he’ll be happy. And judging from when I talked to him today, he was very pleased with it and mentioned that you know if he had sat out much more he was probably going to come and see me. But you know, I think it’s…For a guy that’s had a storied career and started there; it does have a….There’s an intangible here that hopefully works for both of us.

We may see Pearson, Vey, or Toffoli sooner rather than later. Dean, in his interview, likened the deal to Carter's, in the sense that he would never had made it if he didn't have Voynov, and likewise wouldn't have made it without the depth we have. We may see a prospect depending on how the trade deadline shakes out.

Said he opened up a roster spot for Martinez, but it gives us flexibility if we have to call up one of our aces in Manchester.

Thought they would hold on to him but glad he gets a shot at playing full time. A third would be nice too.

Doubt we see any of the prospects unless an injury knocks out a scorer.

Philly. So if the Flyers make the playoffs, we get Philly's 3rd round pick, and if they miss the playoffs, we get Phoenix's 4th round pick.

I'm counting it as us getting a 3rd for Gagne because I can't imagine Philly not making the playoffs.

They are on the outside looking in and everyone in the east has games in hand on them. It's hard to think with as good as they have been over the years but odds are they miss the playoffs this year.

He had 2G 1A in that 5-1 blowout of the blues. Last year's home opener I think.

I posted this earlier in this thread, I can see the Flyers missing the playoffs fairly easily:

Also, their defense continues to be atrocious

Beggars can't be choosers when you're trading a guy you're not using to the only team you really tried to trade him to.
