    As far as I know the Senators are going to tender Karlsson an offer on July 1st. If he doesn't take it then.... well. Screw it I'm using a gif

    Same thing could be said about Budaj.

    So Domingue is the backup? Budaj was a trainwreck last year, he was the main reason we had to overplay Vasy for most of the year.

    actually, with Brassart and Bourke being signed by Syracuse, TB is adding gritty depth today.

    A crappy forward causes less harm than a crappy defenseman.

    He'll fit right in with Coburn who got pummeled by Tom Wilson.

    I think a change of systems will help. Hopefully Killorn will not teach him how to sleep in the corners.

    He'll back-up Peterson in the AHL.

    Plus we know what he's capable of. He'll do just fine here in LA.

    This feels like a quasi AHL move. I'm not convinced either guy will be in the NHL full time next year.

    That was the most captain obvious thing I've ever read. He basically broke down what each player did or is and said nothing riveting we don't know.


    Maybe I should apply to write for them. Damn. What an easy article.

    I really don't know Andreoff...but, seeing the stats, I'm not sure he'll play with us next season.
    Maybe he'll put in some trade again...
    Btw, it was evident that the chapter of Budaj, in Tampa, had to be ended. I mean: with Domingue, Budaj would have represented the third goalie...
    So, it's better to him also to change team.

    I'm not sure we have the assets to compete with other teams anymore. We've already made our choice with McDonagh, I think we're stuck with him

    Doesn't feel realistic to acquire Karlsson. We have no A-grade prospect, no first in the upcoming draft. Unless you're comfortable with giving up Brayden Point, I don't think we can make it happen. I don't think we can afford to lose Point.

    The Karlsson dream died when we traded for McD imo.

    I don't know if it was ever realistic anyway. We don't have the blue chipper(s) required. I just don't think a deal around Howden would've gotten it done.

    I think the only way we kick the tires is with Howden and Foote. Seeing as we didn't want to move Foote and Howden is gone, I don't think we really have anything we can afford to give up that doesn't set us back. Trading McDonagh is highly unlikely and moving Point and/or Sergachev would be highly idiotic moves.

    If I'm Karlsson, I go to Vegas. Adding him and possibly a highly skilled forward in the next 1-2 offseasons is going to put them over the top.
