Paul Holmgren slips past Brian Burke to become Dean Lombardi’s #1 trade partner

Yesterday’s trade sending Simon Gagne to the Kings East Coast Affiliate gives Flyers GM Paul Holmgren a total of 5 trades with the Kings since Lombardi took over in 2006, surpassing Brian Burke, and taking over the number one spot. For a complete run-down of all 54 of Dean Lombardi’s trade, look here. For my post of last month entitled “I think Simon Gagne might get dealt soon,” click on the hyperlinked words I think Simon Gagne might get dealt soon. In it, I also predict that Andrei Loktionov might be dealt soon.

Here are the current GM standings.
