Oh well, Sharks ended up with their goalie.
All but 1?! Last time I checked, the Hawks still have Toews, Kane, Keith, Sharp, Hossa, Bolland, Seabrook, etc.

I know Gagne was overpaid, but losing him still hurts the team. Curious offseason for a team that made it to game 6 of the finals, thats for sure.

I don't really think Gagne was overpaid - he wasn't making nearly as much as Scott Hartnell, who from time to time does absolutely nothing but take penalties.

I don't think the Flyers did too badly this off-season. Gagne missed considerable time again and the improvement of youngsters like Giroux and Van Riemsdyk (and MAYBE Zherdev... lol) should be able to more than make up for his 17 goals from last year. Goaltending is the big question mark and I'm really surprised they didn't even make a pitch at Niemi. At any rate I think they'll be starting the playoffs on home ice, as much as I hate them.

Well, they had 6 games to see Niemi close up, I think that's why they didn't want him (yes, I know Leighton blew in the finals, but Niemi didn't impress me too much either, outside of game 2). I think they made a pitch at Nabakov, it wasn't happening, so they tried to upgrade the D in front of Leighton. I just hope guys like Hartnell, Giroux, and Leino are able to keep the momentum they had in the playoffs.

This is probably my biggest concern. I think I'm more concerned for Hartnell than anyone though.

Same here - he seems lazy as shit. The other two i think are up and coming young players that just need the ice time

Exactly. It seems like he just doesn't give a shit enough to actually play his best when the games aren't very important.

I agree that Niemi didn't set the world on fire with his play, but he's got a ring and he's better than what the Flyers have now. Considering he was eventually signed for $2 mil, I don't see how they wouldn't want the upgrade.
