He's being mentioned out of Philly in talks with Tampa so he's available (via Kypreos). He's been linked with us before. Guys on other message boards were mentioning it prior to Kypreos dropping the news. I'm not 100% certain but it would make sense. We can't sign UFAs because of our salary cap but we have pieces to trade: Kostitsyn, Pacioretty, etc. I wouldn't take a risk on Gagne though with his concussion history and his $5.25m contract for only 1 more season.
Last UFA season really got everyone used to using up tons of ink on Canada day.
Aside from mayybe one more elite D OR the elusive power forward, we are fine. If Pouliot becomes the player he's supposed to, we're fine and I'm sure over the course of the season, PG will figure out what to do with Hammer. On that subject, what's the deal with Mara (after surgery). Since he didn't play that much, I didn't even get a good read on him. I hope OB gets to play as much as possible.
