    Karlsson deserves better than that. Plain and simple. So does Tavares, and I hope to see them both move on.

    Say what you will about the Flames Ownership but at least they treat their players with respect, sometimes even too much. Hopefully enough respect to build them a new building soon.

    It's just incredible how fast things hit rock bottom for them. Before the season there was talk of them being the best team in Canada, with a young, good core to build around. Now they're doing a full blown tear it down rebuild? Holy ****.

    Melnyk's gotta kick rocks, sell the team, he's an embarrassment to the NHL.

    They never should have even been in the discussion for best team in Ontario, let alone best in Canada. They had a long Cinderella that took them to the Conference finals and barely got them in the playoffs. Fans are far too quick to label a team good because of a fluke run.

    Obviously this is an over simplification, but if Anderson returns 1 day later from his time away from his personal leave, he doesn't shut out the Isles 3-0 in his return and the Islanders get the final playoff spot and the Senators are on the outside. I don't know how anyone thought they would be that good again when they needed a miracle run just to sneak into the postseason.

    I do agree, the talk was premature, but imo they did indeed have a solid foundation to build on, centered around a Franchise player. Hard fall either way

    I think they were always a bit of a paper tiger.

    After Karlsson that defense was pretty bad. Phaneuf is fine as the 3/4 and Ceci has shown flashes but outside of that it is pretty terrible. Up front Stone-Turris-Hoffman are ok guys but not a great 1st line and other than Brassard a whole lot of meh.

    Eh. IMO, that team is Karlsson, Stone and a whole **** load of meh. They also lost Methot and never replaced him. They were clearly worse on paper than the previous season.

    So if Ottawa's really going full rebuild I have to wonder whether Stone actually ends up on the table...

    That doesn't make sense, but what's being reported out of Ottawa doesn't either.

    So... Stone and Karlsson for Monahan and Hamilton. Go.

    Ottawa's goal was deemed offside after video review. Same kind of goal as Calgary's 4th goal in Vegas game.

    I fully support video review, but this is getting really ridiculous, Sens players skate was maybe half an inch above the ice so no goal

    My issue is with the lapse in time between the offside and the goal.

    The simplest change I can think of is making the offside only reviewable if it happened within 10 seconds of the goal.2

    They need to change the offside rule to better suit the speed of the game, plain and simple.

    I don't think there is any advantage to changing the rule. Players will adjust to the rule and there will always be contentious plays. But the reviews should go away.

    He can't get traded to another team fast enough.

    My concern with all the Kane rumours is that like Hickey maybe the Flames feel they can’t sign Fox so dealing him isn’t that big a hit but he still has a ton of value to teams that think they can sign him making him a great trade piece.

    Likely just paranoia from too much Kane talk, I just am terrified he will be traded to us.

    Rumor has it as the Bruins first and Zach Senyshyn, the player they drafted with the first rounder they got for Dougie Hamilton

    How did that work? 0 points +1 1 shot in 10mins of ice time. It doesnt sound too impressive tbh, was it a really solid 10mins or something?

    Scorched-earth rebuild. What's the core group of players they're going to build around, Stone and Ceci?
