Danny Briere, Scott Hartnell, & Simon Gagne on the trading block?

From The Fourth Period...

It's believed the Flyers have been shopping the likes of Danny Briere, Scott Hartnell and Simon Gagne for some time. Forward Joffrey Lupul was also on the block, but he was packaged in the deal for Pronger.

...and from The Ottawa Sun...

If the Canadiens can't swing a deal for Tampa C Vincent Lecavalier, Flyers C Daniel Briere could be the prize behind door No. 2.

While Flyers GM Paul Holmgren didn't get any bites as he shopped around his high-priced centre at the draft, it doesn't mean he struck out.

Habs GM Bob Gainey could turn his attention to landing Briere, if his bid for Lecavalier fails.

Sources say the Flyers would also like to trade W Simon Gagne.

It's been reported before that the Canadiens have already passed on Briere once this offseason. But I don't think it's a surprise if Holmgren is still shopping him and his ludicrious contract. Offering up Gagne on the trading block, however, is a big concern. Gagne's excellent comeback from a concussion last season was, very quietly, one of the best stories of the year in the NHL, and taking his production out of the lineup could be a severe mistake.

As for Hartnell, his chemistry with Jeff Carter was a major contribution to Jeff's 46 goal season last year. That shouldn't be overlooked.
