2013 NHL Free Agents - Simon Gagne

Simon Gagne will become an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2012-13 NHL season.  His cap hit stands at $3.5 million according to capgeek.com.  The 33-year old winger was traded back to the Philadelphia Flyers by the Edmonton Oilers this season.

Gagne hasn't been producing at his usual offensive clip this season, but his change of scenery back to Philly has seemed to kick start his scoring.

Outlook
The Flyers are expected to be tight under next season's reduced cap.  If they can't entice Gagne to stay with a steep discount to his current salary, expect the unrestricted free agent to wind up on a team with a need for veteran experience and a team with more room under the cap.
