Gagne/Lecavalier/Jagr

OK, so hear me out.

First, this is crazy, and basically amounts to a dream scenario.

We trade Read/Mez/2nd rounder for a young defender with 2nd pairing ceiling, and a decent prospect.

We sign Jagr and Gagne.

We move Hartnell to the 3rd line, and move Schenn up to the first line, likely giving us the best third line in the NHL.

Schenn/Giroux/Voracek
Gagne/Lecavilier/Jagr
Hartnell/Coots/Simmonds

Is our top 9.

With Vinny's passing, and Jagr's puck control, I think they could turn Gagne into a 20 goal scorer.

Please don't flame me.

Seriously, that line has the potential to be really awesome, or play about 19 games together.

C'mon! Defensively responsible, great puck-moving, and a good amount of scoring power. 3 future HOFers! Maybe I'm being a little generous.

Jagr is the only HOFer out of that group right now. Lecavalier is boarder line at best & Gagne is no where close.

That line is a disaster. The Jagr nostalgia is worse than the Gagne nostalgia among Flyers fans.

It would have been a good line 10 years ago though. Lecavalier is the only one out of the group that can still put up points.

We'd be an automatic dynasty if we used that line. Three consecutive cup wins minimum. Each of them would go 30/30 and be a +15. I don't know why Holmgren hasn't done it already.

Edit: Also, Lindros would come out of retirement.

This line would be unstoppable in NHL 04.

I saw this and shrugged, Atlas. The Flyers should be promoting the kids, not the Over the Hill Gang.

The Flyers should try and lure Ray Bourque out of retirement

In theory, I love the idea for entertainment value. It would be great watching these vets together, especially Lecavalier and Jagr.

I've already admitted this was crazy, and I don't honestly expect this to happen... But it's the off-season, and I'm having a little bit of fun. Besides... I don't especially care if other fanbases think we're delusional. At least we're exciting.

No. God we finally have plenty of young talent to put into the lineup and you want to sacrifice their development for a washed up Gagne? Come on, man.

scoring power? Gagne is washed up, and so is Jagr. i don't want to stick Vinny on a line with two vets FAR past their primes. no thanks. Gagne and Jagr are done. neither deserves to be on any teams 2nd line. Vinny should play with two young kids like Schenn and Simmonds.
