    Yeah that's the reason I said next season they could challenge for a playoff spot. I would like them to get another center and projected 1-4 dman. Their forward core is almost done, the D needs an overhaul.

    Yeah I saw those, Pettersson and Hughes on the PP and leading the rush is going to be fun to watch.

    I know Ottawa was really high on Hughes and thought he was a star in the making. Would have been happy had they taken him if Tkachuk wasn’t available.

    Tkachuk has been doing pretty well for you guys, do you still like the pick?

    How far along is Ottawa's rebuild?

    12 wins in 27 games is not .500. Certainly exceeding expectations though

    After the bigger sports events this weekend, I really don't give a fuck but blowing a 5-1 lead with 25 minutes left. Just fucking awful.

    he was interim GM for a few months and used that time to make some absolutely franchise crippling trades.

    I like this trade, Leivo can be a 20g 45 point guy and has a wicked shot. Freed up a contract spot and roster spot in Utica too.

    Carcone has been playing well this season, likely a career AHLer though.

    Liked the pick at the time. Almost everyone here chirped it saying you don’t draft what he brings at that spot. So far so good. Tbh I saw the merits of giving up the pick but there’s a different vibe on the team which has changed the outlook. Long way to go tho.
    How far along is the rebuild depends on what Duchene and Stone do. Re up them and the rebuild is a re tool. Trade them and Sens are 2/3 years away.

    Have to hit on their draft picks though.

    Would be awesome if Eugene sold the team then Karlsson came back as an UFA and Duchene & Stone resign.

    Probably
    I liked him as a pick but I still thought they should have given the pick away and said as much in here. But now he's been even better than I thought he'd be and I think they probably made the right choice. He's been arguably the best net front presence in the entire league thus far. (More high danger chances created per minute than anyone else)

    Also when saying they should have given the pick away I thought they'd be horrible and almost a sure thing to end up with a top 4 pick next year, but now there's a good chance they won't.

    Probably agree. Their top 2 lines and top pairing are actually pretty damn good. Their problem is their bottom 2 lines and bottom 2 pairings are some of the worst in the league. Building good depth/improving that much of the roster takes longer than adding a another top piece or 2.

    Another problem is how much dead money they have. Almost 10 million on the books for Gaborik and Macarthur for 2 and 1 more years, + 2 more years of Phaneuf's salary they have to eat,

    Nothing changes really until we get a new owner. Plenty of good young talent that could surround Duchene and Stone if they stay.

    Probably but they have talent to compete next year if
    1. Stone and Duchene stay
    2. Young guys continue to develop at the same rate
    Either of those two change then it’s hard times.

    Not sure bringing karlsson back would be the best option.

    I have a feeling the Wings are going to sign Karlsson.

    Not saying I agree with it, but we have an owner desperate to fill the building and we have a lot go cap room this summer.

    If Yzerman comes into town, I think that would only seal the deal.

    Vancouver is the opposite, they need more top end talent. They have bottom 6 forwards and 3-6 defensemen in spades. lol

    That would be a good movie ending. Get assets for the best player on your team, sign him the next offseason as an UFA, and get rid of a terrible owner.

    The land deal downtown where the new rink should be is a mess right now thanks to Eugene. He has to know his only viable option at this point is to sell or screw everyone over out of spite.
    Easy money is the spite option.
    Wouldn’t Vancouver be open to bring Karlsson in?

    Him or Myers, but I don't think they should sign anyone like that yet because that's a last piece signing for a Cup contender move.

    Does it seem like in recent years teams are stacking their top lines/PP1 more than ever before? Tons of guys at the PPG threshold this season and scoring isn't really up much, and you have all these teams like Buffalo, Dallas, Colorado, Boston, with probably their 3 best offensive forwards on the same line.
