Aren't we all, Squeeks, aren't we all????

As for Gambit on X-Force. I really like X Force, but in a way, I am glad Gambit isn't on it. I think it goes against what he personally believes in. He has no problem killing someone if it is in self defense or to save someone he cares about, but to be part of a cold blooded assasination squad? I don't see him walking down that path, especially given his history with the Assasins Guild. The one good thing Carey did with Gambit was having him come to Professor X's aid in Legacy when no one else did. It is a bit ironic that Gambit, who probably was the furthest from believing in the "Dream" has become one of the few who seems to still believe in it at some level (his comments to Cannonball in Hellbound also hints at he isn't down with Cyclop's dictatorship). I see him still loyal to Xavier's and Storm's ideals, although he has trouble living up to them himself, and it will be interesting to see which side he choses in the upcoming Xmen rift.

I wouldn't want Remy to replace Deadpool. As a Deadpool fan, this seems to be the only publication that gets the character right-a tortured, not wholly evil guy with smart-"ss remarks and periods of insanity that we haven't seen since Cable and Deadpool.
