Will the Boston Bruins Welcome Back Simon Gagne?


Simon Gagne would like to get back into the NHL. He was a decent fourth line player last season in Boston, and he seemed to do alright in the role Claude Julien laid out for him.

  • So, will the Boston Bruins invite Gagne to camp in September? They might as well. They’re going to have several positions open this season, and the B’s could certainly use some players that could help the team.

    Gagne has a better idea of the system than a lot of the kids who will be coming into draft. He got to play with the team last season until his father’s health declined, forcing him to go on a leave of absence. He’ll have a leg up there.

    He will have the unwavering support of Patrice Bergeron. Bergeron has been a fan of Gagne, and lobbied to get Gagne a shot that led to the contract offer. As Patrice Bergeron is seen as the future captain and name of the franchise, I’m sure the Bruins front office will give Gagne another shot(if for no other reason than to appease the best two-way forward in the NHL).

    He’s going to be a cheap player that will come in for a single season. Thanks to Peter Chiarelli’s ‘contractapalooza’, the Bruins have tied all but ten million dollars in cap space with several players yet to be resigned by Boston (Dougie Hamilton is the biggest name on that list). The B’s will need to have a couple of bridge players that will help them through the next few years as the B’s try to shake off the bad contracts that painted them into this corner.

    Simon Gagne is a solid player, but he knows there isn’t much gas left in his tank. The Bruins don’t have anything to lose by inviting him to come to Ristuccia Arena for one more chance to make the NHL. Gagne might actually surprise us (again).
