    Looks like a good time to pick up Landeskog to me.

    Fine, if you want to be a pessimist.

    If a couple of these guys go on LTIR does this open up the opportunity for Ottawa to take any heavy cap hit expiring contracts in exchange for picks? Other teams looking for cap space at the deadline might be interested in this... maybe?

    If Stone/Ryan/Hoffman/Wingels are all done for the year I see it as pointless trying to bring in vets.

    Well he is right, first of all this team isnt winning anything if Stone is out long term, if his career is in jeoprady management will have to take a long hard look at the direction of this franchise moving forward. So its the last time the sens should be moving futures for immediate help.

    Especially considering Hoffman and Ryan are out too.

    Its insane that going into the game last night were on one of the biggest high's of being sens fans in a while after a big win in Toronto, a 5 point night for Stone and a win away from being first in the division. To losing the best forward on the team, the best goal scorer on the team a top 6 forward and a depth forward in one night. Now it honestly doesnt look like playoffs are a real option.

    Not to be a huge pessimist but realistically when you look at this current healthy forward group they just cant compete for a playoff spot. Stone drives the offense and creates balance in the lines. With little to no NHL depth its hard for any roster to lose 3 of its top 6 forwards in one night.

    This is likely what the forward group looks like right now.

    Yup, if those three are done . . . probably best just to ride it out. One player isn't going to make much of a difference. Even if the team does squeak in, they won't have the scoring depth to do much.

    Lets just hope that Hoff and Stone aren't out long term

    God, if Boucher had trouble with the 4th line before, yikes. The new 4th line is going to be horrid.

    But hopefully we get some AHL boost like when Hamburglar went on his run. Some young guys might come up and play balls out for a few weeks and inject some energy.

    Ryan will be gone for a month most likely and back in time to gear up for the playoff
    should the Sens be able to hang on.
    If it is a re-aggravated groin injury you would think Hoffman wont be out any longer that a month .
    The year Karlssons achilles got sliced, Spezza was out for a long stretch but still they made the playoffs. This year there just don't seem to be any thing but retreads and nnder-performing prospects down at Bingo though.

    What bad luck this year-MacArthur gone for the year after after training camp, Anderson for a large part of the year and now this. .

    Akeson is on an AHL contract, he would need to be signed before called up.

    Would that help offset the loss of Mark Stone?? Not sure why this train of thought is even entertained. Even if someone went after Trouba, who cares, the damage is already done.

    I don't know.

    I would feel a little better if Trouba got his ass beat up.

    It's not so much an eye for an eye thing, it's more of an if we jump in and make Trouba pay a price then it may make teams think twice about playing that way against us in the future knowing there will be repercussions to face.

    While yes, maybe someone should have got after Trouba at some point, but we were trailing and losing healthy body's fast. The team couldn't afford to lose any other player for any reason.

    My biggest problem is with your second statement, do you really think players think this way.

    Do the Matt Cooke's and Jacob Trouba's off the world actually say to themselves:
    "uh-oh, we are playing the Ottawa Senators, I better make sure I don't knock someone out cold cause this team will make me accountable"

    It is the league's job to protect its players, so the suspensions will be what deters these hits, not the presence of a bunch of goons going after Trouba.

    The game is played at a fast pace, these hits will happen no matter the opposition, until the league steps in and makes players think twice.

    Ironically, when the league suspends Trouba, he won't be available for when the Jets play the leafs, which is actually doing Toronto a favour.

    Salt in the wound.

    I forget...who cut EK's Achilles? And what happened to the guy? Has the law suit been settled yet?! No? So now Stone is becoming Brian Little. Damaged goods
