    Not complaining. But that Hoffman attempt should have been a trip. Lehner missed the puck and went for the skates

    I don't understand why you're allowed to trip people in the shootout

    So you think Smith gets moved at the draft or the summer? I bet it's after January next yr. Pageau played 4th line centre once upon a time & now he's their defacto 2nd line centre. Stuff happens. So did Couturier & he's their #1 centre, it's happened before even here in Ottawa.

    He is significantly better. Andy is middle of the pack, Lehner is as bad as it gets.

    I don’t think you understand how bad Lehner really is in the shootout.

    Nice win by him tonight though.

    Smith has no future in Ottawa. Maybe if he was getting paid 4th line money, but at that price they absolutely need to fool another GM into snagging him. We need that money for the better players and we should absolutely have White playing that position instead next year.

    To put it into perspective, Lehner had 2 saves tonight. In the 16 attempts prior to tonight, he had 3 saves,

    Andy has a career .676sv%, Lehner .528sv%

    Of the 127 goaltenders who have faced a minimum of 20 attempts, Lehner ranks 124th.

    I did not say White should play C ... I think White can play 3rd line RW no problem. I said White can bring what Smith can bring. and more. I believe that. Smith has regressed from his best days for what ever reason. He handles the puck like a grenade. He is hit and miss defensively. Smith has experience and can take face-offs and is a bigger body .. that is it in terms of pluses. I Do think they will trade Smith if they can get a 2nd for him absolutely. Probably if they get a 3rd for him. They moved Brassard... Why not move Smith if they are trying to get rid of salary.

    Smith had a bad game. He doesn't bring anything now except good PK. I'm hoping he's moved before his stock fall way too low to trade him.

    I'm hoping there just wasn't any sort of decent offer for him at the deadline and that's why he's still here, because otherwise Dorion will just find it harder and harder to find a trading partner for Smith. I would have gladly accepted a 3rd pick for him.

    With no 2nd or 3rd this year .. they need to get picks somewhere .. Smith is an obvious target

    Yes, but they have two firsts. I guess we'll see if they move him at the draft & what the return would be but I think Smith will be more valuable at the deadline more so than the draft. Smith still has three more yrs on his contract, it won't be that easy to move, I don't think. I think PD will have his hands full this summer re-signing Stone & Ceci & with whatever they decide on Karlsson & probably Ryan & then there's re-signing Duchene? I guess we'll see eventually what happens.

    Pretty sure he's talking about Burrows but on further examination we are actually using 3 players nobody would take for free on the PP.

    numbers say otherwise.

    eye test, which admittedly is only watching Lehner again Ottawa, definitely says otherwise

    Lehner gave them 920 goaltending last year. We'd be in the playoff race with 920 goaltending
