The story was first broke by Eklund of Hockeybuzz, and now it's been confirmed that Simon Gagne has been traded to the Tampa Bay Lighting. Frank Servalli of the Daily News reports that the Flyers have received 30 year old defenseman Matt Walker and a fourth round pick in return for Simon Gagne. In other words, this was a salary dump in every sense of the word... Here's the scouting report on Matt Walker. Exciting huh? And this for a team that's already added a ton of salary at defense this offseason in Andrej Meszaros, Braydon Coburn, \u0026amp; Sean O'Donnell. Flyers GM Paul Holmgren spoke about the trade. Despite that, it remains to be seen whether the Flyers actually plan on having Matt Walker play with the big club. As Anthony SanFilipo reports, the team would have $2.7 million under the cap if they waived Walker to the minors.
