    Meant Tampa, of course. Which is in Florida. Dammit, why do we have two teams in a state that can't barely support one?

    Tb fans say he's terribly soft. Fair enough, every time I see him play he's been good so I guess he fooled me.

    Rumour is that they'll buy out Gagner.

    Both players had 2 years left at similar cap hits. Why would they make a trade just to buy him out?

    Less cap implications on buying out Gagner then Purcell. Tampa might be clearly room for July 1.

    I'm not super familiar with Purcell but I thought he was effective. I don't see a buy out happening

    Stephen Whyno @SWhyno
    #TBLightning to buy out Sam Gagner as long as he clears waivers, team says. #Oilers

    Sounds like they don't need that anymore. Gagner to Arizona for draft picks apparently.

    Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie 17s

    PHX gave up a draft pick to TB for Sam Gagner and B.J. Crombeen. TB clearing salary cap room.

    true but you can't fill up on unlimited Centers. they might not be ideal but they fit in.

    watch Coyotes turn Gagner into a 70 point guy.
