Rumors say that the Flyers may waive Gagne if a deal can't be made. His contract expires at the end of the season.
Would/should the Rangers pick his 1 year, $5.25M contract up for nothing from the Flyers to be the top line left wing? This would allow Dubinsky to play 2nd line center, or 2nd line wing, depending on the need.
Redden's only going to be demoted if we need the cap space, in my opinion. I think this would be a decent reason for the Rangers to demote Redden, fill in McDonagh in his spot (if he earns the spot) and have a better top-6 then what is currently penciled in.
I would lose a lot if not all respect for the Flyers organization if they pulled this off. Simon has been apart of this team for 10 years and was ONE OF IF NOT THE MAIN reason they made it to the finals.. and all of a sudden there's reports of him being placed on waivers if he doesnt waive his NTC? I call B.S Its just some reporter trying to make up another false Gagne rumour for the sake of trying to save their ass by falsely reporting he waved in the first place. But hey if its true why not throw Briere, Hartnell, Richards, Pronger and Kimmo on waivers too.. they all got NTC or NMC's. Truth is I dont think Simon is leaving Philly but if he does, it certianly won't be in the East let alone the same division.
