    Dont know about you guys but I'm getting a bit anxious. This is a critical piece of the FYOUS puzzle, is it not?

    I have re-upped my season tix this year and while I expect to be in an empty building most of the time, I was also looking forward to watching the younger Sens players develop.

    I am hoping that Chabot gets signed soon to a meaningful (5 x 5, 6 x 6, etc) contract. I would take this as a sign of faith that this franchise is trying to go in the right direction.

    Chabot is worth 8x8 with good signing bonus money

    It’s a contract Melnyk can’t afford

    I think you’ll see Chabot dealt by the draft in Montreal

    Why is anyone surprised. They couldn’t extend EK or Stone or Duchene or Alfie.

    Melnyck can’t even afford good players, elite players are a non starter

    That's fair however it would be a way to demonstrate that the team is serious about rebuilding, especially since the team has been pillaged over the past 2 years

    FYOUS

    They are sitting on money from the Duchene and Stone extensions

    Re-invest that money into the club
    Give the fan base hope?

    They only have White as a RFA now
    They’ve been putting money in Melnyks pocket all summer

    I know I’m not buying any tickets until I see the club invest some of that saved money into the club

    I’m still waiting for a President of Hockey... what happened to that ?

    It does not depend on your desire. Negotiations will be long and difficult. And you can buy tickets when you want.

    We simply can't afford the high salary bonus laden contract he'll command. This will be his last season in Ottawa.

    So....wait another year when the cap is higher and he'll demand even more? Doesn't sound like a great plan, to me.

    But hey, I can think for myself. I don't need the organization to tell me what to think about everything. :)

    It's still early, not time to panic yet. As Hun pointed out, a lot of competent teams with money still haven't signed their RFAs for this year. It would be very hopeful thinking to get a Chabot deal done this summer. And with the teams track record you're obviously worried about what will happen next summer.

    It really is going to be telling what happens with Colin White. It's the first chance to give out, not big money, but significant money; and to show that they'll actually re-up with these young guys for term once they show something.

    Plus on the other side of things, would Chabot even want to sign here long term? A long term commitment to a team like ours or Arizona right now may not be in the interests of a young ambitious player that wants to win.

    There is almost 0 reason for Chabot to sign an extension before next year.

    All he can do is improve is stock over the next season. Even if he had a season ending injury, he wouldn’t be any worse off than if he signed an extension this year.

    I actually think it could affect him negatively. He is now more well-known among the league and won't likely have the leverage and space he had last year. Plus, Ottawa is so weak I think he's an easy mark for opposing teams. Thus from a Chabot perspective he may want to lock in now, as has been the trend for good players coming out of an ELC.

    What the hell do I know though? Just pointing that there may be reasons to do this from both player and management perspective. Since dollars prevail, it would make sense to try to lock him in cheaper and for longer term.

    His value at 5 + years is too much for Melnyk to swallow. I think next summer they try to qualify him using their hope for the best strategy.
