Now I know philly didn't want to trade Gagne to us because we are Div rivals but come on TB got a bargain. For that kind of value I wish there would have been something we could have done to entice Philly to trade him to us.

If we know that I'm sure he knows that he doesn't have a lot as far as oppurtunities to play in the NHL. He's only 30 with big upside when healthy. Seeing that TB got him for a 4th and a bum then to me a 4th and a conditional 7th would have been worth the risk esp if he was willing to rework his contract to a more cap friendly,injury claused contract. With each guy taken it makes me hope more and more for Sharp or Ryan. Gagne wouldn't have been my top choice I was just talking about a risk reward type deal considering what TB gave up to get him.

Great deal for Tampa- they have a nice top six group of forwards now. If they only had a goalie

They have just signed Dan Ellis, a guy with loads of untapped potential.

I know. Im just a little skeptical of a guy who has never played more than 45 games at the nhl level in a season and is 30 years old.

Ellis is a solid goalie.

Gagne had a NTC and the only team he was willing to waive it for was Tampa Bay because he wanted to play for Yzerman and with St. Louis and Lecavlier.
