But if we could swing a Zibanejad (+) for Duchene I think that makes us contenders.
Agreed, upgrading top 2 centres (Turris through health, Zib through trade) makes us a true contender for the division next year.  Still a couple of years away from a Cup contender IMO.


"A couple of years away" and then you are probably missing a top goaltender.  Andy will be, what, 37?  Who knows where O'Connor will be by then, but likely not a #1 for a contender.  I think if we can upgrade at C we have to go for it next year.
I'm not worried about goaltending.  It's relatively easy to pick one up when you compare it to top end skaters.   Besides, Crawford, Niemi, Giguere, Thomas, Osgood all have Cups while Price, Lundquist don't.   Right now a team could get Jimmy Howard for and a pick for future considerations if they wanted to.

I think Detroit would be more than happy to let him go for nothing. Open up cap space and let Mrazek take over officially.

Though SpezD already posted this, I thought I'd move it to the correct location.

$1.5Mx 1 year for Neil. Good final deal. Money is fine, and if he ends up on the bench for portions of the year, that's ok too. I like the deal.

Nice work.

Solid add for the Sens.

Your boy cole schneider is gone. Only name I recognize coming back is Aekeson. Interesting trade, wonder if they're prepping to ship a depth guy (chiasson or prince)

I just saw that. Seems like. Bunch of guys that were unlikely to make the NHL. I don't see anything I recognize coming back

Trade included Guptill, so if Chiasson is moved or not qualified then all we have left from the Spezza trade would be Paul and Gagne (Gagne was the NJ pick that Ottawa got for Dallas' pick that was part of the Spezza deal).

Turris shut down. "For a while". High ankle sprain. About time.

So none of our existing centers will replace 2014-15 Turris, but right now I'd easily go with Lazar/Paul in the 3C/4C, keeping Smith at wing.

Yeah, sounds good. Lazar is good at D, Paul is huge and capable of the ocd goal....Smith can still sub in on the draw....let's do it.

Wonder which center -- Pageau or Zibanejad -- needs the most help with taking draws.
