For the most part, our defenseman are fine. It's the forwards defensively that suck. Bringing in Gagne should help

Gagne has lost a step the past few years. If he can get back to the form he showed during the first part of his career he should be fine.

even though Gagner is not the player he use to be, its a low risk trade for Philly...

I like to see him back where he belongs

People also need to remember that the Western Conference is a much more physical grind out style of hockey. Obviously with Gagne's age and concussion history he wasn't going to be putting himself at risk. He'll put up more points in Philly and in the Eastern conference in general.

Classy move by both organizations to get him back home.

And he gets his first goal of the season
Good on him though, hope that continues for him.

I don't understand how he can look this good. How did the Flyers get him for a 3rd?

Hope Gagne does well. I'm glad DL did him a favor and sent him to a familiar place. He wasn't going to play here so might as well make everyone involved happy.

He was a healthy scratch that wasn't in LA's plans so they traded him to a familiar place. I'm sure there were slightly better offers but Lombardi is a players GM, much like Burke was.

I think it's a 4th if they don't make the po's. And he does have a concussion history. That being said, he was pretty much just sitting in L.A. And it is his 1st game back, we will see how he looks in a month.
