    Duchene and Senators Haven’t Gotten to Numbers

    TSN’s Pierre LeBrun is reporting that while speculation is that Matt Duchene has been offered a deal worth $8 million per season over 8 years, no firm contract numbers have actually been exchanged between the Ottawa Senators and Duchene.

    What the heck does Dorion even have to do during his all star break time besides this, and he can't even manage it?? What are we waiting for? Might as well just trade him now if we're not even going to offer him a contract.

    There's no money to offer him. The owner simply can't afford it. You can't get blood from a stone.

    Dorion probably made the offer in Melnyk Bucks

    It's possible during the meeting Pat told Pierre that Duchene will not resign hence no offer?

    Brisson at the asg said he met Dorion two time. Have good talk and said for finish the sens go in good direction and have good young coming not in 6 month but one two year. Sound for me Duchene agreed to be part of a rebuild

    This to me sounds like Brisson saying ‘Duch likes it in Ottawa but the rebuild isn’t moving along fast enough and Matt’s not going to wait 2 years to see how it works out’

    Duchene has said all along his #1 priority is to play playoff hockey and waiting until you are 30-31 for a maybe in Ottawa just doesn’t make sense.

    False. Slowly drain Stones plasma while he sleeps and sell it for cash to pay for Duchene.

    Dorion is working overtime to draft a motivational quote to put under Nick Bonino's face in a bus shelter for after we get him in a Duchene trade.

    Guys. This is just negotiations. In negotiations, one side presents their offer, and the other side will come in lower than that until they both mutually agree on something.

    All low volume noise at this point. No info is being leaked. I don't buy any of these reports to date. Dorion/Melnyk have put this team between a rock and a hard place. Look how well we are doing with Stone, Duchene and Dzingel in the lineup, Chabot having a great breakout year, and Bobby Ryan making a positive contribution with some consistency. If we keep Stone and Duchene ; they need to add to get to borderline respectability; Looks like they will subtract to afford them. If they can sell a plan to respectability to either Stone or Duchene I will be surprised . The road they have embarked on is a long hard one. We were not ready to compete when Dorion went all in on Duchene and we are not ready for a serious rebuild when they decided to move Karlsson.

    Pittsburgh has apparently inquired.

    More goalie prospects? They have a good track record on that front.

    Honesty I don't think that the total number of dollars will be the hard part in this negotiation. Both sides know the approximate numbers, and the exact numbers would depend on the everything else that may be harder to agree on. Signing bonus, front or back loaded deal, lock-out protection. The details of the no-movement type clause (how long, any windows, total or player gets to block certain team, etc). Term (the Sens may not offer 8 off the bat, even if they know they'll probably have to go there eventually).

    I know weve shown interest in Jarry in the past he was apparently the initial target before we went with Gustafson

    Could be a third team involved and Pittsburg sending Brassard to let’s say Winnipeg and us getting a prospect and pick from WPG as well.
