To the surprise and happiness of many a Flyers fan, the team acquired former player Simon Gagne from the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday. Gagne spent ten years with the Flyers before being traded to Tampa Bay in the summer of 2010. After one season with the Lightning, he signed with the Los Angeles Kings and won his first Stanley Cup with them this past season.
Gagne brings skill, scoring ability, and a veteran presence to the team, and his return marked a strong win for the Flyers over the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night. But from this point forward, will Gagne’s presence benefit his new/old team in the long run? Comment below with your reasoning behind your answer.
