    AA is definitely more valuable than Tierney. How is that even being argued?

    It depends on team needs too, right? Ottawa felt Foligno was expendable I guess because they had some decent forwards to replace some of the minutes Foligno gave them, but they really needed a LD because they were thin at that spot.

    It kind of reminds me of the Salo for Schaefer deal that went down ten years earlier. I liked that deal from Ottawa’s POV as well.

    Trading Tierney opens up room for White, L.Brown and Norris to get legit playing time. Team speed is a legit need, and I think AA rediscovers his offence with us.

    This trade has to many Moving pieces. It’s either AA or Kassian for Tierney. No picks on either side.

    This depends if Ott needs speed or toughness. I understand they are trying to create room for center prospects, but this may be disputed by other Sens fans than the ones I talked to.

    No need to move Tierney to do that. Those guys should be eating into Anisimovs minutes, Namestnikovs minutes, Ennis's minutes, Pageau's minutes, plus the already available minutes that come from being a bad team. In fact, by bringing in a guy like AA, who needs to be insulated and needs to play in the top 6, you're doing much much more to block those guys (and others) from getting the ice they need than you are by keeping Tierney.

    I’m looking at the UFA market for RHD, and the only name I see being a fit is Bogosian. Maybe we go that direction. If not, I look at Benning, and see a DeMelo like player with more offence. I’d trade Tierney for DeMelo every time.

    Centre depth as follows currently:

    Tierney
    White
    Norris/L.Brown
    Anisimov.

    Moving Tierney facilitates all three being on the team. Pageau moving was a start. Ennis and Namestnikov don’t count due to being wingers. Anisimov should be 4th line.

    OP must be Pierre Dorion's shadow account, because he's got picks on the wrong side of the deal for absolutely no reason.

    Tierney is a guy who looks good when playing with offensively competent wingers, and extremely pedestrian on any team with good centre depth, due to often limited options on the wings. He’s still quite responsible and smart, but won’t engage physically, and isn’t a good skater.

    I don’t see him capable of sliding up into the #4 spot if need be. Many disagree that Benning can do that either, but our opinions differ there.

    As mentioned, I take AA for Tierney and run for the hills. Tierney for Kassian seems quite lateral to me.

    Because of a poor 13 game stretch on AA’s part, to finish the year. It’s insane to me.

    I’m not sure Ottawa even needs a RD to tell you the truth. Assuming Hainsey doesn’t come back we have Zaitsev, Jaros, Zub. Not ideal, but next year will be similar to this one I think. We aren’t ready to compete yet, so just stay the course and let some young guys get more playing time.

    I think the move from a RW to a Center is good for the Oilers as 3c is a huge hole.

    What’s your read on Jaros? I don’t know that DJ is all that high on playing him, due to questionable decisions with the puck. Has great tools though.

    Riley Sheahan should not be there by any means imo.

    Yeah, I feel D.J. might not be his biggest fan. I liked what I saw from him in 18-19 though. Capable bottom pairing guy to me. He’s 24 though now I think, so I think it’s now or never to make the team and stick.

    I saw you take your coat off, so figured I’d point you to the couch.

    He was a stop gap but now it’s time to upgrade.
