I'm with the consensus here: trade Versteeg for whatever we can get, sign Gagne to a contract that would most likely be less than what Versteeg is making.
Barring he wins the cup this year (go Bolts!) You'd have to imagine The flyers would be one of the first teams he would want to sign with, assuming his feeling for being asked to waive his NTC have washed away in the last year.
My guess is he's going to be a cheap, yet valuable commodity on the free market this summer. My guess is that several teams will inquire him. A great veteran presence with some offensive flair.
Gags is and will be one of my all tima favourite Flyers.
Really would have him back here as a 3rd liner.
But I doubt if he wants to play for us... imagine: having played 10 years for this organisation an given your best for team, than the managers ask you to leave and in the first year on another team you win the cup.... I would say screw you Holmgren.
