I want to say these media clowns are being clowns, but it is true we have cap space, which means somehow, somewhere, someone (named Paul Holmgren) is crying.

I bet Richards goes to some random team not even mentioned, like the Wild or the Devils

Some chatter around Twitter that Gagne signed, no major sources however.

On Richards, my sense is NYR frontrunners. Offer may be for 9 years, maybe around $63 to $65 million. Obviously front-loaded.

Incarcerated Bob is not a reputable media source, and I know where he saw that from, and it's since been debunked, hence why Incarcerated Bob is not a reputable media source. And is not allowed to be posted here.

I know the rules, but if it makes us feel any better on any chance he may come back, I think we should post it to bring hope and happiness to Flyers fans !

makes sense, we really hadn't replaced many of richards or carters goals. So we get a 40 year old Jagr and perhaps bring back Gagne. If this team stays somewhat healthy we could be a force. Simmonds scares me, someone said he looked mad at the intro, and still hasn't signed. Voracek at 1 year kinda scary too, but i guess its like a tryout period...?

The one year is to see what he can do and probably sign an extension during the season if he does well enough.

Gagne returning makes sense in the theory that:

(a) He's not a go-to scorer, which he didn't have to be in Tampa and thus they were a contender. With Giroux, JVR, etc. he doesn't have to be here either.

(b) He knows what it means to be a Flyer and play in Philadelphia, and not many other guys really know that with so much turnover.

I'd say if we signed him and left Richards to the Rangers, I think he would fit in very well as a Gagne-Schenn-Simmonds line. Gagne has two other physical players but all 3 have some damn good skill. Seriously, if Gagne comes back, everything that has gone on would of been worth it.
