If Duchene sticks around, thatís probably a good thing you like him more than Karlsson based on Bobby Ryanís latest quote that went public.

Me too. I see there being a difference between someone you can build a franchise around and someone who is an elite talent.

Karlsson is an elite talent but I am not convinced he is someone you want to build a franchise around. Duchene seems to wear his heart on his sleeve and be an active member in the community. He seems like a true role model and a player that Ottawa has needed for a long time (since Fisher, Neil, and Alfie).

I'm probably going to be berated for this, but it's like comparing the personalities of Spezza and Alfredsson. Spezza had more talent than Alfie but was a plug off the ice. Alfredsson was a legend both on and off the ice. Duchene seems like he airs more on the side of Alfie than Karlsson.

The one about him and Karlsson being shipped out to the western conference?

I didn't think that was new intel. They were talking about how close they were at the deadline. Vegas thought they had a deal and ended up moving a lot of what they were offering for Tatar. Vegas and Tampa may potentially be off the market after the moves they've made at the deadline.

If Philly doesn't make the playoffs they could be players in a Karlsson/Ryan trade for sure. There is the obvious Clarke/Ryan linkage and Philly needs to do something to compete with Pitt, Wash, and Columbus.

They have a lot of interesting prospects in Frost, Konecny, Nolan, Provorov, Sanheim, Morin, Hart , Vorobyov, and a lot of cap space coming up over the next two years.

It is absolutely new intel to me because I am under no obligation to blindly believe media propoganda. Nobody knew anything concrete until today in my opinion. Even still, Brennan could be full of Dung too.

To hear a quote like this from a player means something. If it is a real quote it is factual. A player would only know this from their agent. Agents know. Agents also are slimy and have agendaís themselves. Either way, in this specific case, I chose to believe Brennan because I hate Melnyk.

Brennan is a lazy "reporter". Saying Ryan is a Buyout candidate is idiotic. Ryan is owed 30M over the next 4 years, his buyout would cost 22.66M due to the signing bonuses. No one, not even the Leafs would spend 22.66M to save 7.34M. Just ridiculous.

Does Ryan say where he heard it from? It sounds like he didn't hear it from Dorion and his agent said it was a possibility. For all we know Ryan heard it on Twitter which he admitted to following prior to the trade deadline.

Weíll never know most likely. Doesnít matter anyway. The entire organization is a joke on and off the ice right now. The amount of negativity and information that gets leaked out by Sens isnít conducive to success in my opinion.

I don't think this was a matter of information getting leaked, but I definitely understand your frustration. Thing is most 'leaked' information is speculative or intentional. Rarely does information get leaked by mistake. Dorion has too big a mouth to let anything leak.

Wolanin, knowing the Sens prospects like himself, takes one look at the Sens lineup tonight and sees Burgdoerfer in the lineup over his legit NHL prospects like himself and calls his agent. Sign me up as a UFA please.

I canít remember the organization being in anything close to a mess as this. This is next level, laughing stock of the league. The whole thing is crumbling and is the direct result of years of a broke meddling owner that held on to the team too long because heís trying to maximize his profits and the sale of the team at the detriment of a chance to compete and to maintain a decent team.

I hope it all blows up in his face
