    Last thread was at 1000 posts, so here we go with the next iteration.

    FWIW: still taking ideas for the thread title, but had to lean toward something involving Gritty initially because what's not to like?

    Oops this isn't the like thread. Well, I hope we don't sign Zach Smith.

    Zack Smith waived by OTT. Canes need a center and here is a veteran option, albeit not a great one. Problem is, he is owed a lot of money over the next 3 years for what he brings. He also struggled badly last year so no idea if he has anything left so would need @Sens1Canes2 to weigh in on that.

    Doubt Canes would claim him at that salary, but maybe if he clears (and has something in the tank), they could investigate a trade with retention.

    You pretty much summed up my thoughts.

    Thought he might be a fit even though he'd struggled last year. Saw the contract. Figured it was trade with big retention or nothing.

    I do think if we make a trade it will be more along these lines than a Duchene, or maybe a waiver claim.

    Sateri's one of those Quad A type goalies I wouldn't mind us snagging. Isn't as young as Dansk or Lyon but IMHO may be better than Sparks.

    I think we've moved beyond the 'claim trash off the waiver wire' stage.

    We've never even been at the stage where we claim expensive trash. :laugh:

    Really don't see us claiming one of these goalies. I think we'll run with what we had and see what happens. I don't think there will be any problem acquiring a goalie of that caliber if needed in season. And it's an awful idea to go with three goalies while waiting to see if one or both of our guys fails.

    Agree. If the goalies had been terrible so far in camp/pre-season, that would be one thing, but they haven't been as far as I can tell.

    Well, let's hold that thought until we see how the baby Canes and Darling do against a pretty NHL talent heavy Preds team. We may want to revisit this statement tonight at 11 pm and before the waiver deadline expires.

    Why? Are you really going to judge a goalie when he has a mostly AHL team in front of him against a top NHL team with all their starters who are using this game as an NHL tune up?

    EDIT: Just curious, are there a lot of NHL goalies out there that were picked up off of waivers that amounted to something? (serious question as I don't know).

    Forget Smith, how do we convince Ottawa to give us Duchene?

    Sens wisened up to that already and had protection in the Karlsson trade to keep him out of the East this season.

    We will offer Roy, Gauthier, and a 1st.

    He will get traded to Dallas for Gurianov and a 3rd.

    Since it's clear they won't compete anytime soon, they might as well deal him to a team that will give them the beat-down for a coupla/few years and get those sweet, sweet draft picks.
