Left winger Simon Gagne sharply criticized Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren in an interview with LaPresse, saying he was misled about getting a contract.
Gagne, 33, who has said he wanted to finish his career with the Flyers, is an unrestricted free agent who is searching for a team.
"All summer, the Philadelphia Flyers kept hinting that they wanted to offer me a new contract, and I even told Robert Sauve, my agent, not to negotiate with other teams," Gagne told LaPresse, a French-language daily in Montreal. "We trusted them. We put all our eggs in one basket and we got caught. We never thought we'd be stuck in this situation at this time of the year."
