    Where was it ever said that they were’nt talking? Dorian said they’d make an offer as soon as they could, July 1st, obviously they are talking, but, common sense would dictate that EK would want the Hoffman situation resolved before committing to a contract, and the best time to trade Hoffman would at or near the draft.

    EK has asked for a trade apparently. Few people have brought it up this evening.

    Guess you didn't read what I said. Dorion said he'd make an offer July 1st that is correct. But as soon as he could? Well no, because OEL has already agreed to terms and he's in the same situation. And July 1st is after the draft. Dorion needs to know before the draft.

    I did read what you said, you said they weren’t talking as well, which I said doesn’t make much sense. Of course they have spoken. You can’t expect an OEL type deal to be made before hand when EK doesn’t want to be on the same team as Hoffman.

    My point is, and it seems like this happens every year, that just because we do’t get constant updates doesn’t mean people aren’t talking to each other.

    A few people, or the media? Would like to read that. If that’s the case I guess it really dosn’t matter what management wants to do.

    Is there anywhere more reliable than that one tweet that started it all?

    A glorious franchise this never was, but things weren't ever this grim. Even during Bryden days we had hope on the shoulders of skilled young players/prospects.

    If it's true, nobody can blame Karlsson. Wish I didn't love the team so much, this feels like being caught in a tsunami. No hope.

    And even Ferraro was saying he has been misquoted somewhere along the line. If the rumour claims to be from Ferraro, then it's bunk.

    The rumour doesn't claim to be from Ferraro.

    The romour is probably bunk, while probably being realistic at the same time.

    Not sure why the other thread was locked about Karlsson requesting a trade...

    Some of you were saying "Some guy named Alberga" well he is not a random guy, he is on the NHL Channel on Sirius/XM

    Not saying it is true, but just saying it is not like he is an anonymous troller like Eklund

    Ray Ferraro was cited, Ray Ferraro denied ever saying that. (Edit: Ferraro was cited by another person on twitter, not Nick Alberga. My bad)

    Ferraro did have a radio spot on TSN Vancouver talking about the Sens yesterday, never once did he mention Karlsson requesting a trade.

    Why does it seem like the team's best plan for moving forward is 'scorched earth'?

    I know everyone says Hoffman's value is garbage now, but I doubt it.

    Hoffman + Gaborik for Klefbom + Lucic

    Some still spell Melnyk with a C and the Erik in Karlsson's name with a C.

    And don't even get me started on people who can't spell Sidorkiewicz. They've had 26 years to learn!

    Honestly, I'm starting to think it is. A full-on tear down to basically an expansion team.

    I don't know if the team could survive the lost revenue as ticket sales are already down as is. Melnyk doesn't seem to want to absorb anymore losses. The preference may be to ice a cheap team that could squeak into the playoffs. Given the negativity about the team, fans may not turn out for that anyway.

    From a person who is not financially invested in the team - the team doesn't have a budget to realistically compete with and key players about to hit UFA. I don't know why anyone would re-sign in Ottawa right now unless they have been with the team a along time and have some misguided sense of loyalty.

    I'd deal the top of the roster off for young (22 and under) players, picks and prospects. Keep some middle of the road guys (Pageau, Smith, Ceci) for some veteran presence. I don't think you can deal guys like Ryan or Anderson, so they are on the team until the end of their contracts. Taking from Vegas, I would look to have a very fast team. If you can skate and work hard, you can compete. The current Sens are a slow team.

    That first round pick next year is a sunk cost. Given the state of the team now, does one more big mistake even matter? Toronto made a horrible move with Kessel but people aren't that upset at Seguin etc. now, given the team is good.

    I'll also add that a miracle run by a young and cheap team is about the only hope this team has any chance of doing anything. There's not enough money to field a team that too many established players.

    Or spelling Matt Duchene like he's related to Steve Duschesne.
