I decided to take a few minutes from my crazy work day to knock this out. The Tampa Bay Lightning just traded for left wing Simon Gagne of the Philadelphia Flyers!
The return going to Philly? Defenceman Matt Walker and a fourth round draft choice in 2011.
C’mon! Are you kidding me? Matt Frickin’ Walker and a fourth round pick for a potential 25-35 goal scorer?
How much offence does Tampa need? Lecavalier, St. Louis, Stamkos, Malone. Now Gagne! Where does it end?
I realize he’s had some injuries, but did we even try? I mean I’d have no problem paying this guy $5.25 million for one more year.
Rusty Olesz and a draft pick.
Bryan Allen and a draft pick
My old ten speed and two draft picks. Nah, on second thought, I love that bike. Go with one of the above.
Put your general manager suit on and ask yourself, would you take a one year shot at this guy?
History of injuries will be the excuse for why we didn’t, which you certainly have to consider. But, how good would Gagne have looked on the first line?
I really want to know if we even made an offer!
Patience everyone. You’re going to need a lot of it!
