Definitely depends on who they got in return, but as long as its not one of their BIG name players, I'm quite impressed. Tampa Bay is shaping up to be a hell of team next season and in the years to come.

It always comes down to the injury factor with Gagne. No doubt that he's a great goalscorer and it'll be fun to see what he can accomplish with a guy like Stamkos. Or better yet he'll manage to "revive" Lecav's career a little bit. He's only signed for the next season so I hope that Stevie didn't send too much to Philly.

And I'm guessing Zherdev is supposed to solve the goalscoring issues that might come up. We'll see if that pans out, he's got more to prove than Hudler.

They won the Cup in 04, but I agree with you. They're becoming a much different team than last year, and you have to imagine that their mindset will be different as well.

This without signing Gagne. More so a statement that will be made for ages.

yeah they did win in 04 but they really havnt done much since then. i just think they're a great team that should do so much better and i think stevie y will really help them to be consistently successful

Philly was trying to dump salary I get it and Walker is a Philly style player, but thats a pretty big rip off for Stevie. Philly shouldve got a higher draft pick or something

even then, it's still edge TB, whether it's slight or not - now, you get a fully healthy Gagne playing on Vinny's wing for a full season - and then it's an ABSOLUTE pillaging...
