    smart+cheap+proactive move by philly… maybe it gets them off the playoff bubble..

    maybe LA will part with Penner next?

    I feel this is a nice pick up for Philly. Hopefully he can stay healthy for them.

    Key for Gagne is his health. He’s put up some decent numbers when healthy.

    Little risk for the Flyers.
