I wouldn't mind making a splash for a player with term left. Not really into the idea of a rental unless it costs us less than a 3rd rounder.
If by some miracle we made it past the 2nd round this, I would hope, would fill the pockets of Melnyk enough for him to say all in with acquiring the right players regardless of money for next season.
I bet a team in the hunt gives them a 1st for Hansen. Or a 2nd + decent prospect.
Very versatile though, he can play top line, all the way down. And an excellent two way player. I think he plays an excellent PK.
Condra plays an excellent PK. We should just get him...
Sens should not be looking to bolster their bottom six. That's why we got Wingels. I'd look to improve on Ceci and try to acquire a top-six forward with term. I am not saying get rid of Ceci, but I am not comfortable with him in my top-four right now. He's performing well below expectations IMO. As for a top-six, Dzingel and Ryan are not top-six players. Dzingel is over-performing and Ryan is greatly under-performing.
New Jersey has some interesting pieces and given the state of their team, a pick, prospect, and salary relief could go a long way. Palmieri makes a ton of sense to me if he's available. I'd even take a flyer on Henrique though he's a lefty.
