What do you think the Senators could get for him?
A high 1st ++
For a rental? Not likely.
Colorado got better when they got rid of Duchene. Ottawa got worse when they got Duchene. Players like Duchene and Ryan OReilly are locker room killers and getting rid of them is addition by subtraction.
A late first or 2nd + prospect
And now we have stone cold evidence.
Duchene is a loser.
He's a cancer. You'll never win with him in the locker room.
Ryan O'Reilly? Yeah I disagree with that completely.
Remember when Taylor Hall was also a "locker room cancer".
For is a ppg+ right now.
San Jose, Anaheim, La, Chicago, and Boston are all places I could see Duchene being good fits, places that have leadership already built in.
What I'd rather see though is Ottawa get rid of all the non problem starters and build around the guys TMZ would love. Ho Sang, Tom Wilson, Duchene, Evander Kane, Galchenyuk, Yakupov... Get Torts to coach and hire Sean Avery as an assistant.
If it's really all about the money, screw even trying to win. Try to score as many goals as possible and make games exciting.
CBJ was rumored to be one of the top landing spots for Duchene prior to him being dealt to Ottawa.
I know he’s been getting heat within the past 24 hours, but he is the kind of center/player (on the ice) that the Jackets need badly.
Can you fill me in on Galch and Yak being included?
I'd give a 5th round pick... to NOT get him on my team. He's garbage.
Mmmmm do you know what happened in Ottawa between Karl and Hoff cause thats what happened tbh.
Duchene to NJD-Wood & 1st rd pick
Dunno much about Galchenyuk, but I'm guessing Yak is included because of the whole Rail-ordeal and blaming his non-existent success on the NHL and how russians are said to be viewed, and not onhimself.
There’s no chance we pay that high of a premium for a guy with serious issues.
Whatever little leverage Ottawa had, is now completely lost.
Eh, I still think that was a narrative contrived to justify that awful, braindead trade.
If you think that Duchene's value is down because of that Uber thing, you are wrong. Seriously, lmao. What is wrong with ya guys. He'll still get the 7-8 million he's asking for from a bad team. Probably going to sign with a team like Dallas for 6,75.
But he wants to compete for a Stanley Cup?
Some team that needs a centre for a playoff run. But I don't think any team that is an iffy playoff team.....Carolina/NJ would risk a first rounder on him. So does Winnipeg do a similar deal like they did for Stastny, a late first rounder.
There are so many teams already near the cap next season. IMO there won't be many teams willing to overpay him as a UFA. Strange, his best fit still might be in Ottawa at 8m
Apparently he needs more cash. Six NHL guys splitting the cost of a Uber?
Signed Duchene for Zacha, Gabriel, 1st
Think about what Karlsson got the Sens.......and then divide that by 10.
1C on your team...
