    Anderson has been fine, some nights he has had an AHL level defence in front of him

    Not as a slight to Anderson, but wouldn’t he be the perfect backup for a young starter?

    I still don't see a fit for him out there honestly. I think the odds are better he's bought out than traded. Guy hasn't won a game since December 12th, he's either toast or completely checked out (wouldn't blame him, but that's not a great look either).

    I wouldn't pay to move his contract given where the Senators are at in the rebuild, but I'd sure as heck move him for just about anything in the way of positive assets (mid/late pick, D prospect with limited NHL upside, ect).

    Gotta be a better backup than Sparks....and having an Andersen/Anderson goalie tandem sounds nice.

    What is Ottawa going to do in net? Do you have a better alternative? He’s down to 1 year left?

    Dont even remember writing that quote honestly. I feel like that was after a night of drinking and watching the Sens loose.

    Anyways we are kinda ****ed now. We should have got rid of him before the tdl when his value was as high as it would be. Didn't really make any sence to keep him.

    Extend Nilsson as a stop gap until Gus can come up and have Condon as backup is what I would have done.

    Retain him 50% and I think there will be a couple of suitors at next years TDL. That would also allow Ottawa 3/4's of a season to see if Hogberg could cut it as a backup in the NHL. If he treads water on what will be a team just as bad as this year, then move Anderson. Gustavsson is still probably 2 more years out.

    Next years TDL:
    Retain + trade Anderson for a ~3rd-4th
    See what you have in Hogberg
    Maybe get an AHL starter / filler to play some games and ease the load on the Hog.

    I think he returns. Sens defence is terrible and after getting bombarded all season, he was expected to regress after a strong start. There are not too many options for UFAs willing to play in this environment. Keep him for his final season or maybe next TDL he might return something from a playoff team seeking a backup goalie.

    Hard to shine in nets when you have 8 rookies in the lineup, many on the blueline.

    I think he's worth his contract on a more put together contender team or one with a sound D corps. I bet some of them would love him, even as a backup, on the team.

    There aren't a lot of good UFA options in goal. Teams know they need depth in net.

    Anderson will get a 3rd round pick from someone if the Sens move him at the draft.
