Gagne, Flyers talking to other teams

July, 14, 2010

The agent for Simon Gagne said Tuesday that nothing seemed imminent as far as a trade for his client.

"The Flyers have given us permission to talk to teams and we've been doing that, and they've been talking to teams, but at this point there's not much else to say," veteran agent Bob Sauve told "We'll keep talking and see if we can find a good place for Simon."

Gagne has one year left on a deal which pays him $5.25 million a season. More importantly, he has a no-trade clause, which allows him to help control his fate. His fate was sealed when the cap-challenged Flyers signed winger Nikolai Zherdev last Friday.

Via text message to, Gagne declined to comment until the matter was resolved.
