    Silly Season - who will go where?

    Post by PTFlea on Tue Jun 30, 2015 10:41 am

    Silly season...who will give out the worst contract tomorrow and to who?

    and who goes where?

    My vote for the worst is: Matt Belesky. Don't go near him as he's already laughed at a 4 X 4 offer from the Ducks.

    Out of that group I'm afraid the sens might throw some money at Stewart and parenteau. Both RW so hopefully we are safe. I could live with us throwing some money at vermette(if he knows he's coming in on the LW) and obviously Williams.
    On D ehrhoff would be good but that would involve us getting rid of some of our players in a separate deal.

    I don't think the Sens will be throwing money anywhere other than a clear upgrade. Right now they still have too many bodies, still have too much tied up in 13th forwards and #8 D men.

    I don't think the Sens will get anyone at all personally.

    Wonder who will give Belesky his $$? Someone dumb...so...Deputy Dbag?

    I didn't realize that Nick Paul is 6'3" and 220 lbs. He's got an NHL-sized body. And he's a left-hand shot. Intriguing possibility. He's fully committed to trying to make the roster (heard that on TSN1200 today). Given our lack of depth at left-wing he actually could have a chance, especially if we don't get anything via a trade or the free agent market. At the very least he'll be in Bingo and be available for a callup.

    Justin Williams gets way too much on a contract that is way too long. Guy has played so many playoff games that he is like a regular 36/37 year old.

    Here's an idea: let the prospects play in the AHL and leave them there for awhile.

    1.MacArthur
    2.Michalek
    3.Hoffman
    4.Puempel
    5.Prince

    Then why is everyone always complaining that we don't have any left-hand shots? Or is that just at center? I'm confused.

    But in any case, 6'3" (they actually said "almost 6'4" last year) and 220 lbs. Of the other players you mentioned only Michalek comes close to that but his wheels aren't what they used to be.

    And how about this quote:

    "I liked that he was really hard on me, I like when coaches are hard on me," he said. "That's the best way to learn, I find."

    Sure, but if they are ready physically and mentally then what's the problem? Lazar was still a teenager, Paul is 20. Still young but if he's not immature then he could be ready.

    Everyone is different.

    Left handed C. And Paul is one of the best faceoff guys in the OHL, so he might be able to take left handed draws when he's up in Ottawa.

    I like the sound of Paul a lot, I think he has a legit chance to be a big part of Ottawa. And now you add in Lazar and White with Pageau as well and you have a filthy bottom 6 coming.

    Anyhow, I'm not pushing for Paul to be in Ottawa come October, just saying, wow, I didn't realize he was already that big and there's actually a possibility he could contribute earlier than I thought possible.

    What happened to Zibanejad?!?! Laughing3

    I thought this kind of talk would only start after the Dev Camp scrimmage.

    More trades need to be made in Ottawa. I wonder if Chris Neil might be trade bait. Could see Calgary taking a run at him.
