The hatred between Tampa Bay and Philadelphia spans three different sports. We closed their stadium by hoisting the NFC Championship trophy on their field. They beat us in our only World Series appearance. Now this. This, being probably THE most one-sided trade in the history of Tampa Bay professional sports.
Getting a player of Gagne’s caliber in exchange for a guy who might not even start the season in the NHL (plus a draft choice) is sweet; getting him from the Philadelphia Flyers is enough to induce a diabetic coma.
