Both the Philadelphia Flyers and Los Angeles Kings are struggling this season and this prompted the two NHL clubs to pull off a trade on Feb 26. The reigning Stanley Cup Champions Los Angeles sent forward Simon Gagne to the Flyers for a conditional fourth-round draft pick. Gagne is quite familiar with the City of Brotherly Love and the Flyers organization since he spent more than...
Gagne traded. He's not impressed.
The Los Angeles Kings have traded Simon Gagne to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for a conditional fourth-round pick that they acquired from Phoenix, as seen on Philadelphia's official Twitter account.
Gagne skated with the Flyers between 1999-00 and 2009-10 (10 seasons) before spending one season in Tampa Bay (2010-11) and a little...
Simon Gagne helped the Kings win a cup.
But he's not as big as Nolan or King or Penner and he's been a healthy scratch.
So the Kings traded him to a team they like to make trades with and a place he's familiar with.
The Kings get a conditional 4th round pick and could it be that Tyler Toffoli gets called up?
The Kings have made 3 trades in the past 3 weeks...
Philadelphia, PA - Simon Gagne returned to the Philadelphia Flyers in story-book fashion, scoring a key second period goal, as the Flyers clipped the Caps 4-0. Gagne rejoined the Flyers in the early AM hours today after being traded from the LA Kings yesterday (Tuesday Feb 26). Philadelphia used the spark from Gagne and the crowd to jump
It is year three of the Doug Collins era with the Philadelphia 76ers. That usually spells doom for Collins. The overbearing head coach has never lasted more than three seasons anywhere he has coached. In fact, Collins hasn’t coached three full seasons since leading to the Bulls to a Eastern Conference Finals loss to the Pistons in 1988. Granted, the 76ers have had to deal with...
The Los Angeles Kings traded Simon Gagne back to the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday for a conditional draft pick, sending the struggling left wing back to the city where he had his greatest NHL success.
Gagne spent his first 10 NHL seasons with the Flyers, but won his first Stanley Cup title last season in Los Angeles after a late-playoff return from a concussion. He hasn't...
After the Philadelphia 76ers loss to the Orlando Magic 98-84, who happen to have one of the worst records in the NBA, head coach Doug Collins had some words of concern for his team. In a press conference after the game, Collins spoke about his team’s effort, or lack thereof.
“Well I sure didn’t see this effort coming. I thought we played incredibly hard against Miami. I thought...
After the Sixers loss to the Orlando Magic, 98-84 the team's head coach went off. Collins who is usually very polite and calm during his press conferences, ripped his team after their poor effort.

The coach had a ton to say, in which he started his conference by saying:
"Well I sure didn't see this effort...
Tweet The Philadelphia 76ers and head coach Doug Collins have had a tough season to put it mildly. The team traded away one of their best players Andre Iguodala last summer to land Andrew Bynum, only to have Bynum miss the entire season to date while seeming more interested in his outlandish hairstyles than playing [...]
The NHL trade market picked up on Tuesday afternoon with a pair of trades, and it sounds like teams are far from done wheeling and dealing.
One of the teams expected to be most active leading up to the trade deadline are the Philadelphia Flyers, who made a deal Tuesday. The Flyers brought Simon Gagne back from Los Angeles in exchange for a conditional draft pick.
They aren’t done...
The Philadelphia 76ers are slipping out of playoff contention, and head coach Doug Collins is becoming more frustrated by the day. Collins has watched his team lose six straight games. It is the third time Philly has lost five or more games in a row this seasons, and the coach is running out of answers.
“Well I sure didn’t see this effort coming,” Collins said after watching...
The Wells Fargo Center was rocking on Wednesday night as one of the all-time greats, Simon Gagne returned to the club. Besides Gagne returning, he also scored to help give the Flyers a 4-1 victory. Jayson Werth actually said something smart on Wednesday too if you missed it.
In Simon Gagne's return, or as Pierre McGuirre likes to call him "See-mon", the Flyers dominated...
Doug Collins is asking the wrong questions. The Sixers coach bared his soul following his team’s unsightly loss to the Magic on Tuesday, grasping at ways to transfer his own heart as a player — “I ran through my sneakers” — to the inconsistent bunch he now leads.
By Collins’ account, he has even gone to team executives Rod Thorn and Tony DiLeo to ask for advice on how...
