    This is exactly what it looks like to me. And obviously a lie as well.

    Didn't Vermette do this? Traded to Chicago, went back to Arizona the next season>?

    So they don't want to pay him what he wants now... But somehow they're going to be able to pay him what he wants in the summer, outbidding a field of suitors, while no longer being able to offer the 8th year. Okay then.

    Tomas Plekanec this year, even though his contract was later canceled.

    Pros:
    Ottawa is one of the best NHL cities to live in once you're married and have children, amazing place to raise a family.
    From nearby Haliburton, extremely close to his family. Probably likes winter.

    Cons:
    Melnyk
    Losing
    Melnyk
    Aging arena / facilities
    Melnyk
    Cold winter
    Melnyk
    Higher taxes than US
    Melnyk

    It's basically City vs. Team.

    Imagine being Duchene and getting traded to a team like Nashville. A great team, a great city, a well run organization, a likely Stanley Cup push. Then in July after all that goodness he’s like “yeah I’m going to move back to Kanata and play for Eugene and the Senators. I miss Bobby Ryan so much”.

    Lol.

    Not that I’m putting much hope in this report and I’ve already said my piece about it but a serious contender like Nashville for example would be in tough to meet his financial demands.

    Is that the same brain that used our 1st to acquire Duchene, knowing he was going to trade Duch, EK, Stone and likely end up last.

    Lets be honest, the only loading up he's going to be doing after a rebuild is with alcohol, on his liver.

    Happened just a few years ago with Matt Moulson and the Sabres. And the Sabres then were probably worse than the Sens are now, albeit with less drama/negative PR surrounding the team/ownership.

    If that's true then he has basically no value on the trade market . Ottawa might get 1st rd pick that's in the late 20's and c level prospects but that's all.

    He'll be worth as much (more) than Stastny last season who went as a straight up rental considering he's much better than Stastny.

    No team is filling Ottawa's prospect depth with elite talent if they feel a deal is already in place for Duchene to return to Ottawa .

    You mean to say that Hall, Omark, Paajarvi and Eberle is not enough?

    Nashville could move Turris or Bonino to make a deal work. They’re not excessively overpaid and remain productive. Preds can also consider Subban at $9M as well.

    Duchene can be signed for $8M -$9M per and with no state taxes, it’ll be impossible for the Sens or most teams to match.

    Are they cleaning house of their coaching staff?

    Did Duchene tell this to Johnston in an Uber ?

    Is Melnyk also going to pull a Kevin Costner Draft Day coup and trick Colorado into trading their first overall back to Ottawa, while re-signing Duchene and then offer sheeting Rantanen or something? 5 year plan!

    I like how you speak on behalf of the NHL, you have no idea if that is the case or not.

    Really don't think the team or player can do anything about someone taking the words, " I love it in Ottawa" and adding his own rampant conjecture to it. They really can't do anything about that.

    This Vancouver fan disagrees. A team like Winnipeg would love him for a playoff run and can't re-sign him anyway. Rental Duchene has plenty of value.

    This would be classic. Sens undervalue Duchene at the TDL, he goes on a deep run with a contender, then the Sens overpay him on 7 year deal.
