It has been confirmed through media sources on Friday, that Flyers forward Simon Gagne has been asked to waive his no trade clause.
However, a trade is not expected to be imminent.
A tough but necessary move by the Flyers, who have less than a million left in salary cap space with restricted free agents Dan Carcillo and Darroll Powe still left unsigned.
Gagne, 30, still has one year left on a contract that would pay him $5.25 million. He scored 17 goals and 23 points in 58 games last season.
UPDATE: According to Anthony SanFilippo, Gagne has agreed to waive his NTC.
