Yeah maybe eh?

Maybe weíll just try the huntman dealers or walk from the Sensplex. If weíre lucky it might still be warm. Itís not December yet

Zero degrees and snowing/raining this Saturday. Enjoy.

Poor Methot. Out 4-6 weeks with a knee problem. Zero points (not that that's his game anyway). Playing on a mediocre team going nowhere. I feel bad for the guy who legitimately did not want to leave Ottawa.

From TSN:

The Anaheim Ducks have acquired centres Adam Henrique and Joseph Blandisi along with a 2018 third-round draft pick from the New Jersey Devils for defenceman Sami Vatanen and a conditional draft pick.
------

Nice upgrade for the Devils' blueline. Nice add for the Ducks who have injuries up front. The old "hockey trade".

Wow. Thatís a nice big trade. NJ addressing an area of need. Letís just hope the loss of Henrique doesnít hurt them the way loosing Turris did.

Who in all honesty thinks that weíd be suffering a 7 game loss had Turris stayed here?
Not blaming this really on Duchene but this has definitely hurt the chemistry that the team had. Itís also sad that the teamís chemistry can be hurt so easily. This team is fragile.

There's literally no way of answering this,and if you say "we wouldn't have loss 7 straight with Turris, then it's a ridiculous statement. IMO Turris didn't even have much chemistry with most forwards.

This trade wasn't meant for the short-term (as in three weeks) anyway.

i agree. It was made to help us resign karlsson and win in the playoffs this and next year and hopefully fir a few years to come.
My problem is Iím not sure was that great at being a Center. I think heís more productive at wing playing with another great centre. Heís shown some great noved over the last 7 games but more often than not they are individual plays so can/does his wingers benefit from playing with him? Iím not sure. I think Turris might have been better in that respect. I hope we manage to keep both latís And duchene but the sooner duche moves to the wing (playing with a great C)the better weíll be I think.
As for winning now... well that ainít working.

Brown and White are both projected at centre. †I imagine we'll see Brass and Brown at centre with Duch on a wing in a couple years. If White has enough offence he might be moved to top 6 winger, if not he replaces JGP.

Yeah but thatís exactly it. Brown might be a number 2 C in a couple of years. I have white being a top 6 RW if heís a top 6 or as you say maybe a 3rd line C. Some are calling him a Patrice Bergeron lite center so who knows. But itís still a few years ago. I think the time to win is now. (And in a few years)

Brown won't be 2LC in two years. He's in Junior the rest of this season and will start in Belleville next October. With that large frame when he bulks up he'll need more time to get his speed up to NHL levels. His upside is huge but it is going to take a while getting there.

White is a lot closer, but more likely a 3LC.

Let's make a bet right now. †Brown, barring more injuries, is in the top 6 in 2 years.

Another Saturday without a Sens evening game. We've had one Saturday night since we played the Leafs October 21. That's 1 out of 6.

It depends on how he trains this off season, but I could see brown centering Duchene in 2 years

Just look at the contracts. Year 2 for Stone, Duch, EK, Brass on new deals. †It's all setup for Brown as the 2LC.

Got our puppy, finally. Was supposed to be 2 weeks ago but with Bobby scoring last night I guess it worked out. Took her to the pet store to get fitted for a collar and harness and ran into Ian Mendes and his whole crew. My daughter was geeking out.
