    so we are taking on a horrific contract, giving up a piece with some value(not a lot but positive value), bailing out the oilers and you are protecting the pick....where do i sign up

    Forgot about Sanderson tbh. That does change my view.

    Centre it is.

    If Vancouver was going to do that, they would have done it already. My guess is they either ride it out, or buy him out next year.

    Not trying to be THAT guy. But in what world is money ball Ottawa taking on a bad contract for a prospect.

    I don't see the Ottawa ownership doing that.

    Jake Virtanen is a just turned 24 year-old physical RW who scored 18 goals in 69 games last year playing most of his 13:05 minutes of average ice time on the third line, only 53 seconds of which was with the PP2.

    Canucks also have plenty of short term terrible contracts that we could package with him to lower or eliminate the return.

    Unfortunately as others have said, if this was possible it probably would have already happened.

    One who makes the little red light go on when he shoots at that net thingy. But not just once in a while, like pretty often.

    What exactly are you offering in return? Just taking bad contracts?

    also In the same signing they can pick up the terrible 3 year contract the OP is looking for by signing Hoffman to a 3 year deal and get his girlfriend back too as a sweetener .

    Eriksson + Virtanen always made sense to me, but now we're getting into a position where theres not a lot of room for Virtanen. I would just try to bring back Duke on a 1yr deal.

    Duclair would make lots of sense now. But did he burn a bridge?

    Dorion says they are still interested in signing him, but he would need to “understand his role”. I interpret that as meaning he is going to be behind several other wingers... and that Dadonov will be the guy on PP1.

    I’d offer him 2 years at 3.5 per season. Take it or leave it.

    Do you have a link to that interview or quote? I didnt see that

    I wouldnt offer him beyond 1 yr, unless we dont plan on extending Brown beyond this upcoming year (which I think would be a big mistake). He lost long-term job security when Dadonov signed.

    Last 2 paragraphs.

    "Out of respect for Anthony, we gave him a head's up of what was going on yesterday morning [with the signing of fellow winger Dadonov]. We really like Anthony. He had a great season for us last year. We offered him a substantial raise ... he chose not to accept it, wanted to test the free agency waters.

    We've kept great contact, talked almost every second or third day since the process started. He chose to go, and we're always keeping the door open, but he would have to understand what his role would be. But we do like him as a human being and a hockey player."

    Senators GM Dorion talks top prospects, adding grit, expanding Chabot's role

    Yeah there is no way the Sens add in a second rounder, and one protected pick isn't even enough. Like Ottawa would be better off overpaying Granlund themselves on a one year deal, and then retaining and trading him at the deadline for a 1st. In fact, they could do that 3 years in a row and get 3 firsts instead of having to have Neal. Which puts the value of Ottawa taking Neal at around 3 1st rounders

    Legit question if Sens would take a swing at Laine?

    Certainly have the assets and cap space.

    Get one of the Bolts that are on the block e.g., Killorn, Gourde. You'd probably get a pick from TBL along with the player. Get TBL to retain as well if desired.

    But, I'd think Ottawa would prefer to add a center.

    Step 1, offer sheet Sergachev and Cirelli for deals that Tampa has to match but can't right now. Something affordable.

    Then, knowing that they won't solve their cap situation within a week, offer to take Johnson and Gourde off their hands, with quite a bit of retention and a sweetener attached.

    Watch Tampa match the offer sheets.

    Go full heel turn and immediately offer sheet Cernak.

    Sens have a lot of prospects. You don't need the 1st round pick.

    Best we can do is yellow starbursts and not protection on the pick.

    If Hoffman wasn't a cyber bully we could just sign him.
