Please PLEASE tell me this is a joke. No prospects, a 4th round pick and a 30 year old border-line minor league D-MAN for GAGNE?!?!?

There's no defending that deal. That is completely inexcusable. I wonder what Bob Clarke and Ed Snider are thinking right now. And you've got to believe that Peter Lukko is probably seething right now with this deal. The only thing I can think is that Walker is going to end up in Adirondack to mentor the youngsters there.

Holmgren really **** up big time. This should be the sort of trade that results in a pink slip being handed out.

Yup..who is being schooled now...

WTF...so basically Gagne is trully turning out to be a salary dump. They better use the money on a goalie to lessen the blow of this insulting raw deal....

Hey there is a silver lining. At least we get to overpay Walker for 3 years. Way to go Homer.

Yzerman didn't even give Homer the decency of a reach around. Gotta give props to Stevie Y - he really drilled Homer......

He hates us. He is trying to make our team suck.

You know.. I would be angry... but I just feel like I should have prepared myself for this.

At first I read "Scott Walker" and my first impulse was: "No, I hate that ****ing *******."

Well, another D. Our defense is deep. Probably another trade coming though. At least we're not above the cap anymore, but at the expense of Gagne. Really sad.

Still not going for torches and Pitchforks. Let's actually play some games first.

Walker is tough as nails. He performed well on Chicago's bottom pairing in 2008-09. In Philly, he'd be a seventh defenseman at best.

Quote:
It [Tampa] also is no longer responsible for Walker's contract that pays $1.625 next season and $5.525 million over the next three seasons.
You guys save some cap space.... Look at the positives. LOL.

Can't really. Wishart would've made it palatable. We don't need another Dman like Walker who is making $1.7M for two years.

He better be flipping Walker... and signing a goalie.
