Dear Paul Holmgren and the rest of the Flyers organization,
I am writing this letter to you on behalf of the Philadelphia Flyers fanbase with only one purpose. That you do not trade Simon Gagne. Simon is the heart and soul of this team right now and trading him would be a slap in the face to the loyal fans who love and support him. Trade Jeff Carter instead, the salaries are almost the same and we are stacked at center. Think of it this way, if you trade Carter and Boucher, you could bring in a solid goaltender AND a decent 2nd line forward. Carter is going to command far more next year, whereas Gagne will resign cheap. It's a simple cost/benefit analysis, yes Carter will put up more numbers than Gagne, but Gagne will put up more bang for the dollar. Fact is, this franchise needs a true number one goalie, had we had a goalie with the talent of Nabokov, then Ryan Parent as a #6 Defenseman would have not cost us a Stanley Cup win.
Down Goes Spezza
