We'll go into next season with Anderson and Lehner and if we have O'Connor then they'll trade Lehner as soon as O'Connor feels he's ready for the NHL.

    I don't know about any one else, but I'm about this concerned about Hammond walking.

    He's 27 and this might be the only contract he gets if he flops. I wouldn't blame Hammond one bit if he went where he could find the most money. If Ottawa were to trade Anderson then Ottawa would be able to match any potential offer elsewhere.

    I can see MAYBE a team like the Yotes doing to just to get above the cap floor as a backup but that's really about it.

    As for Hammond, we'll see how much he really wants to be here if he's offered a 1 way deal.

    GMs do some pretty stupid things on July 1st. He's got a masterton nomination, and likely wins it. Just adding to his appeal as a feel-good locker room guy who also went an insane 20-1-3.

    Phoenix, Florida, Buffalo, Edmonton, I could see any of these teams offering hammond a 2-3 year contract.

    I just mean that keeping Anderson and Lehner are higher priorities for me. Hammond was amazing and I totally understand if he needs to cash in here... but short term, Andy is a better goalie, and long term, Lehner has the higher ceiling. I'm not ungrateful for the work he did, but those are the realities.

    Except we've seen that having Lehner and Anderson both here probably isn't the ideal situation....especially for Lehner.

    Again, in terms of priorities with my goalies, Hammond comes in at #3 on my list. Hence my original post.

    Well, it would seem, that Ottawa's priority is to sign Hammond and move one of Lehner or Anderson. I hope it's Anderson that gets moved for a few reasons.

    Yeah, I think it'd be wise to take a shot on having Hammond as the backup. If not Hammond as the backup, someone else not named Anderson or Lehner.

    It's fair to assume Greening gets moved, bought out, or very well paid to score 0.5 PPG in Btown. What about Condra? Is he gone?

    Probably. Room has to be made for whoever gets picked in the 1st round.

    management seems keen to keep him. hes a good guy to have on your 4rth line but honestly i could do without if it means giving one of your guys a chance to take that spot. condra could be the 13th forward coming out of camp.

    If the Sens make enough moves to clear up some roster space then why not keep Greening as the 13th, 14th forward? If you could choose a guy to play that roll it's probably Greening. That said I think he is bought out when the time comes.

    You don't want your 13th forward making that much money

    I'd rather someone like Robinson as a 13th forward but it all depends on what moves are made this summer.
