    I think Pageau gets more especially if Krieder resign with rangers and is off market. Other centers are a wasteland in this trade market. It only takes one desperate gm to give up a 1.

    Duclair can just flat out fly. If cost on him was a late second only as a rfa I would do it.

    Doesn't work like that. Sens get criticized for giving away an unexpected lottery pick but then don't get credit for getting an unexpected lottery pick?

    We gotta get a more consistent narrative.

    Those picks are currently #15 overall and #19 overall. I don't think there is any chance the Canes move a mid-1st for rentals. Adding Pageau + DeMelo to the Canes roster doesn't move the needle much. They would still have gaping holes at #1RHD, starting goalie, and #2C (IMO Pageau isn't a 2C on a contender).

    Except at the time Ottawa gave away an protected pick when they were not expected to be good. San Jose gave away an unprotected pick just removed from a Stanley cup final appearance. In addition to the team was a WCF team after the karlsson addition, surely the expectation wasn't that the 1st being given in that trade would immediately plummet from being a final four team to possibly being a top 5 pick

    Not quite the same

    What? San Jose gave away an unprotected pick after a finals appearance.

    Ottawa gave away an unprotected pick after a conference final game 7 double overtime game.

    Litterally a single goal separated what San Jose went through and what Ottawa went through.

    I get that, but the season that Ottawa traded for Duchene, they were a very bad team on paper and Duchene was far from the missing piece. Ottawa notably over achieved that prior season. Wheels came off pretty fast after that labeled "Cinderella season"

    Again, pretty widely noted that was a Cinderella season and on paper that team did not look like they would repeat that success, which of course they didn't and fell back down to earth pretty hard

    San Jose has built their roster to compete and win now, every season. Melnyk dismantles his team every time his concession stand expenses get too high

    JGP + 2nd for Islanders 1st.

    Out of all teams in a playoff position, the islanders have the worst PK %.
    Pageau excels on the PK.
    Ottawa upgrades their 2nd to a 1st

    Ottawa tried to resign Pageau in the offseason

    I'm not so sure the Canucks and Pageau are a great fit. JGP isn't passing Horvat and Pettersson on the depth chart, and would sort of lump into a 3rd line with Gaudette and Sutter who also play centre, unless that is what's intended. On top of that is Vancouver good with not having a 1st or 2nd this year?

    The prospects are also a tough choice, mostly based on positional need for the Sens. Not much point in asking for someone like Kole Lind because he would be thrown into a group of other forwards ready to make the jump as early as next year. If a D prospect was involved, I assume Olli Juolevi is still valued high enough in Van that he wouldn't be a part of a rental trade. Outside of him guys like Teves, Sautner, Chatfield, and even Rafferty aren't that appealing imo.

    As for salary, I think that can worked out in the summer. When Loui gets his signing bonus on July 1st, Ottawa would certainly be smart to look at trading for him.

    To me, Pageau gets a first for his strong two-way play, penalty killing, better than average faceoff percentage and overall playoff intensity moreso than the 21 goals he's scored this season.

    A perfect fit for a team looking for that unsung piece to put them over the top.

    San Jose is really old and a decline could have been expected. The days of jombo Jo getting 100 points are long gone.

    I can't comment on the team, but I feel we should go all in this year. A weak division and injuries to a lot of key rivals mean we could (could) push deep into the playoffs.

    As for position, I think Gaudette being used as a top six winger, alongside Horvat or Pettersson, would be a sound move. Pageau would/could be set with Roussel and Virtanen, or Boeser and Gaudette or Sutter, and give some defensive accumen to a depth scoring line, or some offense to our shutdown line.

    I'd be open to Juolevi, but he and a second round pick would be a big ask for Pageau. He's finally got a pro season that hasnt ended in December due to injury and is showing promise to...well not live up to his draft position, but to contribute. Would there be any other rentals or pieces that Ottawa fans like yourself would feel comfortable with including for Juolevi and our 2nd(presumably+)? Nothing huge, but cheap contract for an out of favour player, or something to fill our depth a little.

    As for salary, I was thinking more of Schaller as a cap dump, or Stecher as a piece of the return. Simply to balance our cap. Schaller is on expiring contracts, and Stecher is an RFA, if the Sens are looking for a short term, cost controlled RHD. I wouldn't presume to rehash Eriksson to Ottawa in a rental thread.

    So Ottawa is trading pick 34 and Pageau as of today to get pick 27? Not remotely close. Pageau and 3 for 1, I can at least see the logic.

    We also have the Columbus and Dallas 2nds. Whichever was worse I would include in the deal.

    The 2nd would be jumping like 20 spots

    Than
    Thank you for clarification. Still think you can do better but I see the logic behind the trade.

    Thanks! I think JGP fits the Islanders well and would make a huge difference for them in the playoffs. Special teams are crucial.

    I think the trade was very fair.

    I think one of Max Veronneau, Filip Chalpik, or Jonathan Davidsson fits that bill. Stecher would work, especially if Demelo is traded/not-resigned. Pageau + one of those guys for Juolevi + Stetcher + 2nd?

    Maybe you could get a 2nd+3rd for Pageau, but upgrading an end of 2nd to end of 1st is probably better odds of hitting than a late 2nd and 3rd.
    It's an interesting idea and it might be worth ot for Ottawa, since they have so many picks.

    Would Ottawa fans be willing to sell DeMelo to the Leafs for Bracco + 4th + 7th?

    Of the three, I think Chalpik would be our guy. Adding Stecher for one of the three makes it feel a little more lopsided however. We still value Stecher, and I meant for his inclusion to be more added value. Of we substitute Schaller, adding him to Juolevi and the second, I'd be alright with that return.

    Hard no. Would rather give up a lesser asset to move up if Pageau alone is not worth a first.

    But we can try and resign him in the offseason
