    If I am Ottawa this is how I would rank the top ten picks based on what I perceive as organizational need:

    Dhalin, Zadina, Svechnikov, Bouchard, Tkachuk, Boqvist, Dobson, Wahlstrom, Farabee, Hughes

    Are you saying if Ottawa ends up with the 6th or 7th pick in this years draft, you would give it to Colorado? If that is true, what are you doing with Karlsson this off-season? Are you trading him and that is why you think Ottawa will be worse than drafting 6 or 7th next year? The 2018 draft class is widely considered to be deeper than 2019, so that is another reason I wonder why you want to give away this years, if you do?

    For me itís not about Karlsson being traded, itís that I donít want the org to be making poor long term decisions trying to finish higher.

    Interesting. Thank you. Do you think they need to make many changes to finish higher next year? I donít. I just think they need Anderson on his good year and our internal youthful injection. Boucher can leave too please.

    Definitely need a philosophical change. Passive hockey is unsustainable, and if Boucher canít adjust he should go. Gaborik and Burrows need to be jettisoned and we will need better goaltending. Unfortunately we are short a 2nd line centre and a top3 D. Getting Dahlen solves one issue but no one is ready to take on the 2nd line centre role. I expect we will miss the playoffs with the potential to really be bad if goaltending doesnít improve.

    I am not sure we're that far off. I say we're back in the playoffs in another 2 years.

    Offer Calvin de Haan (local guy) a fair contract and have him play with Karlsson. I'd be moving on from Ceci and finding someone for Chabot to play with (stay-at-home type). I'd then re-sign Wideman (two year deal) and pair him with Boro. Carry Harpur as the extra, trade Claesson. Pokka, Englund, Jaros as the call-ups

    As for forwards, I've seen more out of Chlapik than I have Smith. Brown and White will come in eager prove they belong, Formenton may make the team, etc, Maybe there is smoke on a Hoffman for Nuge deal after all? Max Domi has been rumored to be available. Paul Stastny? Patrick Berglund?

    But we're not competing for the playoffs next year. I see next year as a means of off-setting more salary, securing our top guys, and a year of development for our prospects.

    Ceci is a much better player than DeHaan. If Ceci played on the island and we had DeHaan you would be drooling over the potential of swapping Calvin for Ceci.

    I still think weíre losing karlsson this summer but Iím wondering why people think thatís changed?

    The org is pushing the rebuild line, why would they change now?†
    I personally believe that we could easily make this team better if we could manage to keep karlsson by adding a few players via FA and trade. I donít see Melnyk having the stomach (pockets) for that line of reasoning. I wish I was wrong. Weíll soon enough.†

    But In my scenario A, i give Colorado anything 7 or higher. In scenario B I keep this years pick

    Ottawa will never be a free agent destination. Itís through the draft and trades.

    Iím not saying you get the top free agent out there but itís entirely possible we can get a top 4 Dman on the market or a top 6 winger.

    Another perfect night for the tank 2/3 of the way through. Ottawa loses, Detroit wins and I have a feeling Vancouver will beat Anaheim in the late game.

    I think you are either forgetting about Wolanin or havenít been watching him. Iíve said it all along, him and Wideman will make a fantastic bottom pairing.

    There it is. Another perfect tank night. Ottawa loses, Detroit wins (beating our 2nd 1st round selection) and Vancouver won again too.

    A couple days ago I couldn't imagine being in this spot...and now here we are, tied for 30th. Well done, Sens!
