    Winnink signed with the Leafs 2 UFA periods in a row, and he was traded at both deadlines for 2nds each time

    Actually, if the sens do decide to move on, now is the time to spend big on a marquee coach. If you're going to be a cap floor team (as the COO suggests), then spending a few million on a top notch coaching staff to teach the young players is a positive story line and something to sell. It would also be logical which is why I'm afraid that it won't happen in Ottawa.

    So it's possible even though Winnik is no Stone or Duchene

    That Dorion will trade them for a 2nd? Yeah, that is possible. Lol

    Plekanec was traded last deadline and signed back with the Habs in July.

    That's promising. I just don't like the lack of guarantee that he re-signs.

    I have no expectations for our guys to re-sign, I think it's like a 1/1000 type scenario.

    You don’t see it happen with big name players who can probably command the entire market. Who knows what Duchene is thinking and as exciting as it would be, I wouldn’t take the risk

    The conspiracy theorist in me would go as far as to suggest this was a little play by the media who so loves Ottawa to fail, in a tactic to slightly lower the price by suggesting there is more likelihood he wouldn't re-sign with his new team. This of course could and is likely due to internal incompetence but it seems anytime in the past we had a seemingly valuable asset for trade, inevitably all the issues are exposed, discussed daily and openly in the media 2 months out.

    Why would the media try to sabotage the sens? What's their beef with them?

    Zero factual confirmation, simply a conspiracy theory that's mostly joking. The basis for it would be the few media folks coming out on the record or off of it stating they dislike Ottawa in general and team. Add in the Toronto NHL media center and Government of Canada factor, not many outside our city look fondly on it imo.

    It’s just disappointing that none of them are signed yet. I thought for sure at least one of our free agents would be signed by now.

    i somehow think that they either both go, or they both stay...right now I'm leaning towards both going.
    I really don't think it has to do with money(though it wouldn't surprise me). I think players have no faith in this ownership/management/coaching staff.

    There needs to be a "maybe" option in this poll.

    Duchene is mentally fragile (see his country performances, a man in full control does not need to do this, he just walks around town all Smoove B and people know it) so I see him re-signing here. Stone is cock of the walk, doubt he wants to come back. We'll see.

    Probably going to the game tonight, the snow thing is pure bull****, not a snowflake out there.
