    While I agree that it was a poor signing, he still could have signed elsewhere but he chose to stay in Edmonton. With Edmonton supposedly not being a contender for years, why would he choose to stay? If he has the power to leave, is he really going to stay in Edmonton for a few million dollars more over a chance to win?

    So the argument goes from "nobody wants to play in Edmonton" to now becoming "nobody wants to play in Edmonton unless they are overpaid".

    To claim "nobody wants to play in Edmonton" is making a huge and false generalization.

    Also, you have to realize some teams have to overpay to simply reach the cap floor. Some teams have to offer 35+ year olds longer terms to sign with them (Ottawa). It's not like top free agents are lining up to sign with them either.

    Hmmm... Montreal could trade down, add some picks/prospects, draft M. Subban, trade Price for a huge package...

    I don't get the reference. It's because his first name is Malcolm right?

    and he is black. And MAlcolm X was a black rights activist. And X is the roman numeral for 10, and Subban is now in the top 10 on Craig Button's list.

    That's almost as offensive as someone tweeting as "PK Subban's Nostrils."

    Thanks for clearing that up. I knew it'd be you or Prags.

    So where will the Sens be drafting?

    Any interest in Brendan Gaunce (C) or Matt Finn (D) for the Sens?

    I think we draft 15th?

    Griffin Reinhart, FTW! http://thehockeywriters.com/griffin-reinhart-the-next-ones-2012-nhl-draft-prospect-profile/

    Doubt he falls to 15 though.

    Given that most of us want the Sens to draft a d-man in the first round, their could be any one of the following available:

    Morgan Rielly, Cody Ceci, Reinhart, Olli Maatta, Matt Finn, Slater Koekkoek, and Derrick Pouliot.

    Really like Maatta the more I read about him.

    Pouliot and Cecil might be gone at 15.

    No Swedish forward? Colbert and Aberg are the 2 I think.

    We'll see...

    Central Scouting has Maatta ranked ahead of Trouba, Reinhart, Dumba, and Pouliot...so the scouts would agree with you, SD!

    Reinhart won't get past the top 10. Too much to like about him.

    I agree, I don't see him falling outside the top 10. Maybe Ottawa will trade up for him!!! Or maybe there's so many D on the table in the first round that we'll be content with any number of them at pick #15.

    I'll assume Murray finds the sleeper again and either trades up to get the guy or trades down because he's a true sleeper. Either way, Ottawa will be picking up a D man.
