Ottawa Senators Rumours
Use our rumours form to send us nhl trade rumors.
18 Apr 2015 12:55:11
Had lots of free time today during class and was REALLY bored, so I came up with some leafs trades which is always fun
Be free to disagree with anything that i'm saying, would love some decent feedback because i'm probably off a lot anyways, so here some big trades for the leafs
I see a lot of trades of kessel to the isles so here goes nothing lol
Tor - Kessel, Percy
Nyi - Strome, Reinhart, 2nd, (no need for a cap dump since visnovsky's salary is coming off the books and isles don't have any bad contracts)
NYI give up some good prospects but having a top line of kessel - taveres - okposo might be too good to pass up and percy can maybe join the 3rd or 2nd Dline
Now this was an idea I thought of havnt heard any rumours. jvr would probably have the most value out of all our players other than kessel
Tor - Jvr
Sj - Hertl, Goldobin
With Marleau being traded they now have a replacement top line LW who if Thornton doesn't get traded could look very good, and Hertl has tonnes of potential, and Goldobin looks good aswell I think their values are pretty equal. Hertl also has has a small history of injuries in his short career so far (not very important) but it affects his value a tidly bit
Tor - Lupul
Car - Semin, 2nd
Caralina gets rid of Semins ridiculous contract and gives uo a decent pick, and recieves Lupul who has had better production than Semin, but has a injury history. but 2m less cap
heres where stuff goes out the door and 100% won't happen buttt.
Tor - Phaneuf, Bernier, Kadri, 2nd Car
Edm - 3rd/4th ovr, Pouliot/Nikitin/Purcell (bad contract)
Edm probably won't do this because they might just want to draft Hanafin for the "future" but the fans are getting a little fed up so to quicken it a bit I thought maybe. that they trade for phaneuf who could play with schultz on the top line, a #1 goalie in Bernier and kadri who is the 2nd line C since Draisaitl isn't ready yet I believe it makes the team better with all the talent on that team I think it makes them all around more solid (give a contract away to make cap space) also deal only happens if it is 100% sure they sign a deal before they get traded.
This is my own little touch because I love my Kuchy
Tor - Gardiner, Brown, nyi 2nd
Tb - Kucherov (maybe a D-man cap dump aswell)
Of course the triplets aren't being split up but i'd love this deal to happen as kucherov is my favourite player outside of Zetterberg and Stamkos, Gardiner can join the 2nd d-line, brown can be on the 2nd line and produce well with johnson and palat as his linemates, and a 2nd sweetens the pot (probably not enough but u know :P)
Anyways in the end heres how things work out
During the draft you draft Hanafin and strome/marner in the 3 and 4 picks, unless we win the lottery we draft hanafin and McJesus (I think arizona will draft a C so no worries for them to pick hanafin)
Then during Free Agency we make a splash and make a huge gamble we go out and sign Andrew "the Hamburgler" Hammond, if ottawa don't sign him of course, its kinda a win/win situation. he either turns out into a world class goalie or he's awful and we get a great pick again and the leafs make a fortune off of his Hamburglar nickname haha, then we go out and sign a big name free agent Dman either Sekera, Green, Martin (to play on the top line with Rielly and help him grow)
Lines: (in an ideal world for the Leafs)
Strome - Hertl/Mcdavid - Kucherov
Panik - Hertl/Bozak - Semin
Komarov - Bozak/Holland - Booth
Kozun - Holland/Smith - Sill
(Dcore will suck for a while)
Rielly - Martin/Sekera/Green*
Reinhart - Polak
Brennan/Brewer - Robidas
(keep in mind I havnt added any of the "cap dump players into the line up so that would change things aswell)
(Keep Hanafin, Strome/Marner, Goldobin down int he minors a year or two more)
Thats what i'd do as the Leafs GM (and that's why i'm not HAHA :( sad isn't it)
Well gimme your thoughts :D
18 Apr 2015 14:36:41
Overall I don't think those trades are very bad at all. Worst one probably the Tampa one as even if Kucherov was traded Brown wouldn't be good enough to end up on the second line (Namestnikov, Drouin) and Gardiner wouldn't make the second D pair (likely Coburn/Garrison).The only D man dump Tampa has is Matt Carle and I would love to get rid of him I won't lie but I don't feel that makes the trade viable. I know you know it won't happen, I just think value isn't quite there nor the need for Tampa
18 Apr 2015 18:19:21
Youre Forgeting something no one want to play on Toronto plus you're not getting two top five pick
18 Apr 2015 19:09:29
i think toronto over pays on the first one and I don't see why toronto would chip in percy in that trade.
two solid forwards for jvr isn't bad I just don't like the trade for toronto I think they would go after other players.
The lupul trade is awful for toronto makes no sense, semins contract is one of the worst in hockey, it would be clarkson 2.0 in toronto and the management group can't have that.
I can't see edmonton giving up that pick but the leafs give up too much to get it. I think they would be better served trading those players separately they would get a better return.
Tampa says no.
18 Apr 2015 19:21:20
I'm not sure if you understand trade montrealfinest but when a player is traded he doesn't have much of a choice where he goes to unless he has a no trade clause.
Toronto could get two top five picks as well, you can't just go ahead and say that they won't because it's not even draft day.
19 Apr 2015 03:39:33
Lol i'm not sure that you read is free agency part after the trade ahaha
19 Apr 2015 08:37:53
yes, because free agency determines if players want to play in a certain city or not. what free agents has montrel signed in recent years? manny malhotra and prust I believe are the only 2 ufa signings on the current roster, and prust was like 4 years ago. so by your logic no one wants to play in montreal either, right?
and now you're going to go on some random tangent on how montreal doesn't need ufa's, which isn't my point, yet contradicts your own. so please, for your own sake, don't say that and come up with an intelligent response instead.i know that'll be hard, but give it the ol' college try and you might get half way there.
19 Apr 2015 21:48:02
Ok but first free agency is a complete waste of money
Ok Now Montreal and detroit don't have to use the free agency cause we draft well!
Free agency give you guy like Clarksonn Shankar you love him don't you;) so please go ahead but This is more intelligent then being unrealistic about the fact that everyone want to play in Toronto! Face the fact you're giving bad contract to free agent, and when resigning player in toronto and that reflect on the league!
No wonder pk got 9 millions its because phaneuf got overpay!
There is only 2 place worst then Toronto before the lotery and that was Edmonton and Arizona Now that mcdavid is in Edmonton your almost tie with worst place with Arizona
20 Apr 2015 08:36:38
LOL was I right or was I right?
im not even going to bother, maybe you can re-read the thread and realise how stupid you just made yourself look.
17 Apr 2015 17:18:26
To help the Oilers in net.
Senators: 2rdp 2015, 3rdp 2016, Aulie
Ott needs to shed salary and have 2 good young goalies.
Anderson would be great for the oilers now and can help our backup develope.
17 Apr 2015 21:06:02
not sure what OTT would do with aulie, but its a pretty good deal for both sides.
18 Apr 2015 02:01:33
the second round pick is nice because its basically a late first rounder but the other pieces may need to change. The sens would have no use for Aulie as they have a lot of bodies on there back end right now that could out play him. I would think ottawa would want edmontons 2016 2nd rd pick instead of Aulie and the 3rd to make this work for them.
18 Apr 2015 03:32:37
Edmonton would probably want a younger goalie, but they do need to start creating a winning culture.
19 Apr 2015 02:30:51
14 Apr 2015 04:41:57
bos: milan lucic
buf: marcus foligno and one of the first round pick they have, islanders or blues
bos: reilly smith and third round pick
ott: zack smith and alex chiasson
edm: 2nd round pick
bos: krecji and seidenberg
van: alex edler and first round pick
marchand bergeron connolly
eriksson spooner pastrnk
foligno smith chiasson
talbot kelly ferlin
14 Apr 2015 17:02:34
Pretty good overall, but the third trade needs more from Vancouver.
11 Apr 2015 19:22:07
Beau Bennett/nick spaling ottawa 1st round pick(from previous post)4 round pick for thomas vanek
11 Apr 2015 22:40:31
way too much for vanek
24 Mar 2015 19:56:29
Ott and Sjs
Vlasic= Anderson, Cowen, Chaisson, 3rd
Marleau= Smith, Prince, Puempel, Neil, 1st
Ottawa has so many good young guys and they don't have room to play them all and won't in a couple of years to give them top 9 jobs
Marleau Z Ryan
Mac Turris Stone
Hoffman Ledwand Michalik
Lazac Pageau Condra
look to sign a third line center a more offensive one to play with hoffman and Michalik
19 Apr 2015 02:32:25
1st one is believable
14 Mar 2015 20:22:11
OTT: Craig Anderson, Erik Gryba
DAL: Jordie Benn, 2015 4th
Solves team needs, DAL gets a legitimate #1 goalie who consistently finishes top 10 in sv pct and GAA and is proven that can steal games (currently top 8 in sv pct this season)
Ottawa gets a top 4 D they've been wanting inorder to play with ceci and take some load off Karl and Methot
14 Mar 2015 23:41:30
Jordie Benn isn't that great, Sens could get more for Anderson then a 6/7 defence men
13 Mar 2015 16:14:38
Oilers need a true #1 Goalie
(now that Lehner and Hammond are both playing good)
Ott: Pitt 1rdp, Marincin
13 Mar 2015 17:47:26
not what edmonton needs. by the time they're good (if that ever happens) andy will be pushing 40.
13 Mar 2015 18:55:05
The leafs might give you bernier for that.
7 years younger and a higher career save percentage.
13 Mar 2015 20:41:43
Bernier . no thank you. The Oilers might as well just stay with Scrivens.
They need a true #1 goalie. Anderson is older but he plays well and could probably give them 4 yrs.
Oilers need NHL players now . no more potentially good players.
12 Mar 2015 16:07:49
Edmonton's moves between now and next year.
UFA College signing - Matt O'Connor
Edmonton: Magnus Paajarvi
St. Louis: Ottawa's 2015 3rd pick
Edmonton: Jonathan Bernier
Toronto: Pittsburgh's 2015 1st pick
At the Draft:
Edmonton, with the 2nd overall pick selects Jack Eichel
At Free Agency:
UFA signing Johnny Boycuk 6 X $6M
Nurse and Draisaitl start next year in the minors - finish the year in Edmonton.
12 Mar 2015 18:17:51
Why would Edmonton trade to get Pääjärvi back?
And why not improve defense moore when it's so obvious that defense is their weekest part?
I really don't think Boychuk will sign with the oilers and I don't see why Toronto would send away Bernier either.
Nothing really makes sence besides draft Eichel if you get the 2:nd overall.
12 Mar 2015 18:48:20
How does the bernier deal not make sense.the value looks close to me and both teams get something they want.
It's hard to imagine a free agent signing with Edmonton if he has more than one offer but boychuk is from there so maybe.
12 Mar 2015 19:25:18
You can go ahead and scrap that plan to sign Boychuk. Isles signed him for 7 years! Haha
12 Mar 2015 22:19:34
Well I guess I got Boychuk's $ correct but the team wrong.
Edmonton still needs a top paring D any ideas not named Phaneuf? Edmonton has no interest in Phaneuf (nor he in coming to Edmonton), that I know.
13 Mar 2015 04:34:39
Well the Boychuk signing changes things - so what about this change to the above noted plan:
Edmonton makes an offer to Boston's Dougie Hamilton for $6M * 6 years. I'm not sure Boston is in a position to match this offer. and the return would be Edmonton's 2016 1st, 2nd, and 3rd pick.
Boston has $58, 916, 667 committed to 14 players. Assuming the cap next year moves to $70M, that leaves $11, 083, 333 to sign 9 more players. If they were to match the above offer, they would have $5, 083, 333 left to sign 8 players - that is an average of $635, 416; and there is no way that's happening.
13 Mar 2015 07:26:37
if I wer boston I wouldn't match that offer sheet anyways. sure, hamilton is good but I mean that 1st will (likely) again be top 3 unless EDM drastically changing something, which I doubt.
13 Mar 2015 10:41:30
It is always the Oiler fans who say teams don't want players returning whom they traded away. Whenever someone posts a trade for a player (let's use Lupul for example) they always write that a team will never bring them back.
13 Mar 2015 14:02:33
7 years for the already 31 year old boychuk at 6 million is no big deal.
But the 6 years left on 29 year old phaneuf at 7 million gets people all hot and bothered.
If the oilers signed Dougie Hamilton and traded say pittsburghs 1st round pick for bernier I think Edmonton could be a playoff team.
25 Mar 2015 14:10:58
Leafhate is right.
05 Mar 2015 20:47:06
OTT: Lehner, Cowen, 2015 5th, 2016 3rd
EDM: Purcell, Pouliot, Aulie
05 Mar 2015 22:00:42
I don't think Ottawa will deal four assets for two bad contracts and a giant pylon but stranger things have happened I guess
06 Mar 2015 14:21:53
Is there anything our value moving to Ottawa in this trade?
06 Mar 2015 21:02:25
is there any value of any sen for that matter
06 Mar 2015 22:17:12
Purcell & Pouliot = highly over paid 3rd line wingers
Aulie = AHL bottom pairing dman
Lehner = young back up with upside
Cowen = 2nd - 3rd pairing Nhl dman
2015 5th rdp > Aulie
2016 3rd rdp > either Pouliot or Purcell
07 Mar 2015 02:24:53
I'm a Oil fan and I think that's garbage.
Lehner is a great target - but its not happening for nothing - perhaps the Pittsburgh 1st? or a decent prospect and next years 2nd pick?
02 Mar 2015 14:54:08
Murray has told multiple people nothing is happening today for Ottawa.
02 Mar 2015 18:14:36
Murray is a horrible GM. Ottawa will come 9th this year, miis the playoffs and get bad draft position.
02 Mar 2015 20:57:08
How so stickboi? The senators aren't close enough to a playoff spot to warrant giving up assets for a rental. They also are not anywhere near bad enough to tank and get a pick in the 4-6 range. They can still get a good player in the low-mid teens that can help. The only smart thing for them to do is make a big move like the Bobby Ryan deal and that's something that is easier to do in the off season.
03 Mar 2015 06:43:15
Disagree strongly with @stickboi. I'm glad that Bryan Murray didn't make a trade today. For the prices for some of these players are just straight up ridiculous. Just stay on track with what they're doing and like @Sensfan27 said, they'll have a decent pick in a deep draft and with the scouting staff Ottawa has it's good chance that it will be an Nhl player. Also if they finish off the year around where they are, they'll still be able to win the lottery pick, unlikely but still a possibility.
02 Mar 2015 01:19:42
OTT: Craig Anderson, Jared Cowen, Eric Gryba, Prospect Matt Puempel, Dals 2015 2nd, OTT 2016 2nd
EDM: Jeff Petry, Taylor Hall
Pretty much a first line LW & #4Dman for a proven #1 Goaltender w/ a great contract, young shutdown dman with great potential and size, 5/6 steady dman who fills in the role perfectly and adds size and grit, a B+ prospect and two second rounders to sweeten up to pot
02 Mar 2015 06:14:44
I think Lehner might be a better option for Edmonton. As for getting Hall, it's going to cost Ottawa more but getting Petry as well will help and hopefully he will sign.
Lehner,Cowen 2016 1st, Gryba/Boroweicki for Eberle and Petry
Lehner, Cowen, Chaisson,Lazar,Gryba or Boro, Ottawa's 2015 2nd for Hall and Petry
04 Mar 2015 04:37:03
Ok oilers will not trade hall. Also they can't be that dumb to trade a developing player that has the potential to be a star.
01 Mar 2015 20:13:35
car- semin 50% retain
semin have 500 pts in 625 in nhl and was good in +/- ratio in 3 last year with a losing team. Salary his the only issue with him I think. at 3.5 M for 3 next year , good gamble , I don't think he's that toxic
mtl-eller 2nd round pick
if ottawa trade legwand rhey will need a physical 3rd line center 4 rebuild
Dal looking for a RH D
01 Mar 2015 20:55:20
so you're saying CAR will retain 50% of semin + the 4 mil on parenteau making him essentially a 7.5 millin dollar player, while MTL loses cap? not a chance.
01 Mar 2015 21:52:59
parenteau have only 1 year to his contact, u give him a shot and see what happen next summer if u resign him or waive him
Weise is playing first line right now, and now you have him playing 4th??
Parenteau have only one more year left at his contract.Carolina should play him next year and trade him at deadline for a pick
02 Mar 2015 01:32:18
still, for his production, 4 mil is very overpaid for parenteau. then you go and essentially pay him 7.5 mil for 1 year and give carolina 2 years after that of a dead 3.5 mil cap hit? no way that happens.
Ottawa already has the aggressive third line guy, Zac Smith.
Weise has been back on the 4th line last few games.
Habs are close to making real noise in the Playoffs. Polak, Lupul should put them just over the top to the finals. I know Lupuls contract sucks and he's injury prone, but these two would make a impact on a team that is just about there.
01 Mar 2015 10:11:59
Ottawa Senators: Codi Ceci
Chicago Blackhawks: Patrick Sharp
Ceci will be part of ottawa's rebuild and chicago will need sharp for the pkayoffs since kane is injured.
No from both teams.
01 Mar 2015 14:17:19
With ottawas five game win streak I can see Ottawa buying instead of selling but with the way Hammond has played for the sens I could see the sens possibly trying to see trade value of Andy or lehner as way to beef up for playoff run
01 Mar 2015 18:24:01
I feel if Ottawa was going to trade one of their goalies it would be in the offseason.
I don't know, if a team a bit further up called on Anderson, or a team a bit lower down called on Lehner, Brian Murray would definitely explore it. Either acquire some picks and prospects or get that quality player Ottawa so desperately needs to get things going on a regular basis.
It would be a big mistake to move any goalie for ottawa. Hammond won't keep that kind of play for long
While it would probably take Ceci (plus package) to get Sharp, Ottawa wouldn't do that. The fan base would explode. Ceci is sort of a hometown hero here.
25 Feb 2015 22:52:32
2015 2nd round pick
Ottawa gets replacement players, highly ranked prospects and a 1st this year.
Detroit gets a young RH D-man to solidfy their Defense. Good scoring winger for 3rd line.
If that pick is actually a first and not a 2nd I do it.
No way from Detroit. Wow.
Codi Ceci for Patrick Sharp
25 Feb 2015 13:03:25
Down To the Wire
NYI: Bailey, Leggio, 4th and 6th rounders 2015
Picks for the Oilers and a good young prospect for their ongoing rebuild, and an immediate offensive impact for the Isles. Changes need to happen in Edmonton.
BOS: Paille, Ferlin, 4th rounder 2015
More scoring grit for the Bruins, and Buffalo can benefit from the deeper bench.
LA: McBain, Andreoff, 1st rounder 2015
Is Yandle worth the dismissal of young talent and a 1st rounder? The Kings definitely don't mind, and the Coyotes would appreciate the prospects and decent slotted draft pick.
MTL: De La Rose, Bournival, 4th rounder 2015
Sticking with Arizona, more young talent and potential for the likely to not resign Vermette. Not to mention the Habs get their much coveted french player.
CHI: Rundblad, 3rd rounder 2015
With Kane sidelined for the next little while, the Blackhawks will need at least an affordable power forward. Winnik is a good choice, and Chicago won't mind throwing the Leafs the above.
DAL: Ritchie, 3rd rounder 2015
TB: Connolly, 3rd rounder 2015
I still feel Sekara will be in Pittsburgh after the deadline comes and goes, but Dallas and Tampa Bay could be other decent fits for Sekara.
DET: Helm, Andersson, 5th rounder 2015
Wisniewski is an invaluable asset that the red Wings would love to acquire, however Columbus would need a good return to part ways at this time. The Blue Jackets are keeping their intentions with Wisniewski hush-hush, but Detroit NEEDS another defenceman if they want to be competitive for the remainder of the season and into the playoffs.
VAN: Markstrom, Dorsett
With Miller out until at least the playoffs, The Canucks might be in the market for a seasoned tender to help carry the load with Lack. Niemi has been rumored to be getting shopped around as the Sharks will most likely pass on resigning him if he stays for another failed playoff run.
SJ: Thornton or Marleau
CGY: Ramo, Glencross, Granlund, 2nd rounder 2015
NYI: Bailey, Mouillierat, Strait, 4th rounder 2015
OTT: Neil, Chiasson, 2nd and 4th rounders 2015
I'd like to see either Thornton or Marleau, or even both, moved at the deadline. Get some prospects in return for players long rumored to be on the move. Flames, Isles (pending Eberle trade becomes a reality) and Sens could all benefit from having one of the two Shark players. Calgary would be the better fit of these three teams, plenty of cap space and a good young pool of talent that Thornton or Marleau could help take to the next level.
The sharks could like the Calgary one but the others wouldn't interest them. And I doubt they waive for Calgary. Also a 4th liner and AHL/backup for Niemi?
I'd rather have Markstrom and Dorsett, Lack can hold down the fort till Miller gets back
Habs should send the Sabres Thomas & return 2nd rounder from the Gorges deal for Stewart & Mitchel
Bournival is french too
@Boris Bagel, it does not look as Thomas will ever be a great NHL player, but why not, Stewart and Mitchell for a 2nd and Thomas.
Thomas sucks, habs can keep him.
24 Feb 2015 15:35:49
A trade that could happen now or during the summer. Doesn't really affect either teams hopes of making the playoffs.
2nd - OTT
The way I see it Ottawa's D is too full to fit everyone and Weircoch is the one with the most value (of the D that are available). Ottawa also has no room for Prince AND Peumpel (along with others like Robinson). Might as well send them to Colorado
Colorado (reportedly) wants a yound D man in return in any trade for ROR. This way they get 2 of them. Weircoch a little more NHL experience and Claessen a very good D prospect. They also get a 2nd (which should be close to a late 1st) and a good forward prospect with huge upside.
Patrick Wierchioch has no interest from NHL teams, there are articles about it. It would have to be a better defender in the conversation (Ceci, Cowen)
Colorado says no easily this not even close to the value they would be looking for
JF - there are articles from Garrioch that says HE doesn't think there is any interest. Doesn't mean there isn't.
If Cowen has to go then fine, but you're not getting Ceci AND Claessen - one of them has to stay for the future of this D core.
all those players you listed literally have 0% trade value. Come back to earth.
24 Feb 2015 00:43:40
Loui Ericsson too calgary for glencross and a 4th
Hanoski plus a third and a 4th
Richards to calgary for StaJan and a 3rd
Both would be great deals imo for calgary I know i'm swingin for the fence with the richards deal (la is loaded up the middle) but Boston would get a hard nosed forward in glencross plus a pick la would get a good penalty killer and a pick for a player barely playing in the minors. Calgary gets a play maker in loui that would mesh with Monahan well I would say gaudreau as well but Hudler and him are kinda a package deal can't split em up so he could slide in there and immediately rack em up. Richards could center raymond and colbourne and get an immediate confidence boost which is what he needs. On the defensive side calgarys pretty well rounded maybe a d man would be useful
Dion phanuef to Calgary for Raphael Diaz and a second
I know that deal is ridiculous based on his salary and what he brings to the table (locker room melt downs, arrogant etc etc) Calgary is majorly under paying in torontos eyes but this is a fantasy anything can happen, but him and wideman would be a solid pair and I think calgary coaching would clean him up he would get a confidence booster playing with young stars. Don't get my wrong Diaz is a good PP d man but phaneuf if he came to play would be an upgrade.
Now let's get a goalie
Bernier to Calgary for karri Ramo and Sven baerchi.
Toronto gets a goalie that has the ability to be shut down and a player who may develop into a good 2 way player. Calgary gets an "elite" goalie.
Bobby Ryan to Calgary for a 1st and bolling
Ryan would be a fit in calgary for obvious reasons Ottawa gets a first and a hard noser to cause crease problems. Sure calgary doesn't wanna move picks but Ryan's young just food for thought.
Alright gimme feed back just speaking my mind if you have any changes to trades go ahead and comment them let's play a little game of what if.
That Phaneuf trade is absolutely horrible. If you want Phaneuf you need to give up something better then a borderline NHL defender. Say what you want, he is a Top 4 defender on EVERY NHL team.
No, to much going on not that the value is to far off but most of the teams wouldn't trade these players
24 Feb 2015 12:30:41
you already have hiller why do you need bernier?
LOL Ryan - who JUST signed a 7 year deal - for a first and a prospect
Easy now I never said it was set in stone I was just throwing ideas out Toronto won't be able to get the best out of phaneuf ever spot lights on him he hasn't faired well with it so far like I said I'm way off with his value Diaz isn't top 4 but Toronto gets to dump cap and rebuild get a steady d-man whose contract isn't huge plus a pick the market for phaneuf won't be huge. Loui outta Boston is a nice fit because he's underrated and under appreciated in Boston they would potentially get glencross would would work with their scheme plus the richards deal has more risk for calgary then LA plus we take a bigger cap hit. Hiller has his bright spots but also let's some soft ones in bernier would apply the pressure on him and push them both to higher play. Yeah I get Ryan signed a big deal and I'm swinging for the fences with it he's getting a first for his services and this draft is loaded but this is just suggestions getting upset over them would be pointless
23 Feb 2015 22:07:38
23 Feb 2015 20:05:52
Vancouver gets two crazy possession players, Ottawa gets a depth forward with secondary scoring ability, and Carolina gets a middle 6 forward with scoring capacity and potential to move into a top 6 role.
By the way, that's Victor Rask the forward, not Tuukka Rask the goalie
Now way ottawa take that

Seriously? Rask for Kassian? Start with a top 6 roster player (not named Sedin) and a first round pick and then add some more.

As an Ottawa fan, it's fair value but don't want Richardson. He's a UFA and Ottawa has very similar player in Zack Smith.

To Ottawa: Taylor Hall, Nikita Nikitin
To Edmonton: Mika Zabinejad, 2015 2nd (Ottawa), Nick Paul
A good young developing player, a good prospect and a solid pick for a guy that could be a star in Ottawa for the next ten years. A lot of people say Ottawa doesn't have that many NHL assets, but their prospect pool is deep. Nikitin is a cap dump, and allows Edmonton to take another contract. Ottawa may need to add here, they could include another prospect (Prince, Puempel, Wideman) a goal tender (Anderson, Lehner, Dredger) a defenseman (Weircioch, Gryba, Borowiecki all of whom would fit well in the West) or a pick (2015 2nd Dallas, or without Nick Paul their 1st- which I doubt they move).
They need to add a ton. Hall is a top player
Thats not getting you taylor hall, and people say leaf fans have unbelievable trades, which they do but still
Hall is a bandaid

I know that Taylor Hall is one of the better offensive players in the league and doesn't shy away from the physical stuff but I can't justify trading away Mika Zibanejad. Every game I watch him and he gets better every game and can possibly be one of the better two-way forwards in the future.
You could of at least tried and said a first round pick haha
