Neutral Posted June 29, 2015 Share Posted June 29, 2015 Ppl will say no way to this because of the Kassian Gagner debocal, but here it goes To Van: Gagner, 2016 3rd or 4th- Pick goes away if we resign gagner To Phi: Higgins, rights to weber or stanton Reasoning: Gagner is still fairly young and does have skill, I would play him on the wing beside horvat. Burrows Horvat Gagner Gagner, provides offense that we could use, helps our 2nd PP unit. This trade helps philly but saving some cap space and yes they are getting an older player in return, but Higgins is a solid 3rd line who is a great 2 way player. Can slot in anywhere in the top 9 as we all know. Philly isnt far from where Higgins is from, so I think he would waive. We move out a vet with 2 yrs on his deal, and bring in a 25 yr old. He is 5`11 200lbs so not as small as i thought aswell. He brings a career scoring average of 0.6ppg I think this is a risk worth taking, and yes we do take on a bit of cap, but most likely we move someout most notibely Bieksa. No one in FA has the skillset he can bring who will sign for a 1yr deal at 3m, so if it doesnt work out we arent attached to keeping him. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
