Right out of central casting (though I like the move, just wholly expected).
Cheap... he’s a pretty meh player to me, but good depth for the injuries. Also Avs always get their guy.
Better than Jost
Unsurprising but I'm happy with this
Solid B+ move, but it goes to a C if that's all they do lol.
Definitely better than our entire 4th line right now.
Can't remember how much term he has.
He’s a UFA this summer.
Edit: f*** IT! What do you need me for now?!
E: The new censor doesn't register letter case.
Let's not forget that Vlad has shown to be able to perform with quality players in a top 6 role. Pretty versatile player that can play throughout the lineup
Thrilled with this. Good PK’er and solid third liner for a 4th.
Best part is he boots our AHLers out the lineup. Goodbye Jost, Dries and Tynan.
Cheap help for the PK.
Pair him with Vladislav Kamenev and Valeriladislav Nichushkin
Good depth add. We all saw it coming. Seems like exactly what we need in the bottom six.
Yay no more Dries or Kamenev once pieces come back! LOC can stay he's a decent spot fill in.
Are the Sens retaining salary? CapFriendly is showing it as a retained salary transaction, and his cap hit for the Avs (3.25M) is less than his AAV (4M)?
Off the top of my head right now..
Landeskog - MacK - Nuke
Nameste - JTC - Donskoi
Neato - PEB - Kaut
Kam - Jost - LOC
Like I said.. Dries down
At least he's better than Brassard
I’m fairly whelmed by this, especially if it’s our only move
Is Namestnikov center or wing? Hockey db says center
For the record, Namestnikov was only #15 on my list of wingers available at the trade deadline, but he was among the highest for bottom 6 wingers so it's not bad.
He's taken less than 40 faceoffs this year. He's a winger.
Called it. Very on-brand move for Sakic, he's quality depth and great on the PK, even if it's not a sexy or splashy acquisition.
The sens don’t retain
