Would be a pretty stupid move by Stevie Y to move a young guy like Downie for an injury prone guy like Gagne on a high-end contract. I'd expect Smith and a draft pick most likely.

2 out of how many total?.... probably like 100.

2% is pretty pathetic, even you can do better by picking names out of a hat or throwing darts at a dartboard

Mike Smith and a decent draft pick would be my guess

I don't necessarily see Mike Smith having very much value. I'd almost rather stick with Leighton.

It must be nice to actually have an owner and be able to take advantage of teams needing to dump good players.

That would be odd considering one of the main reasons Ellis is there for is to challenge his friend Smith and hopefully elevate both their games.

All that said, stranger things have definitely happened before.

Doubt its smith, when they got Ellis all he could talk about was playing with smith and how they played together in the minors etc.

Who knows?

It'll be something. Smith, as it stands, has almost no real value.

Checking with sources on the Gagne situation, and as I've said there is strong interest, hearing something might be in works & to sit tight

I sure as heck hope TB wouldn't give up much value. When you have an opponent on the mat, you don't let them up.

Philly HAS to make a deal. Force them into a lopsided trade. Not a lot of suitors out there (reportedly).

EDIT: coreybalint has a good point below me...

I think it'll be a halfway decent return. The Bolts probably had to jump on an offer the Flyers had made, with Kovie returning to the Devils. Not a knee jerk reaction per se, but they needed to complete the deal before a bidding war started.

Yeah, but it isn't Ellis who is making the trade. He also said he was excited to join Montreal and didn't sign.

The Lightning have a great top six forward but they better get some good bottom six forward, as it stands now they are one of the worst in the league

Philly fans better hope this is coming out of Eklund's ass.

There's literally nothing that could be coming back from Tampa that would please you guys. The Lightning is in shambles.

I'd be pissed if we got Smith. That doesn't help our goaltending situtation at all.
