Agree 100%. That Zucker trade was a hockey trade - not a rental trade. I don't think you can compare the two. But I am a little upset that Rutherford made that trade. He's one of the few GMs that have no problem parting ways with 1sts and I thought Pageau would be a good fit there.

And I agree that Norris can fit into Pageau's role as a 2C/3C with Tierney playing the opposite. Not a huge Tierney fan but he certainly has a use on this team. The question really becomes if Brown can transition into a 1C or 2C and push these guys down the lineup.  

Let’s first see if Brown can ever be a top 6 C.
I’m not sure he’s got the speed or drive for the nhl.

Jay Bouwmeester had a cardiac incident on the bench last night during the first period. Game will be rescheduled

It's all been said already. If Pageau is not our 3LC in 2 years the rebuild has failed. And if he is our 3LC in 2 years we can't be paying him $4.5M.

But if they manage to sign him for $4.5x2 I'd be very tempted.

Maurice with the extension in the peg.
IMO he’s one of the better coaches around. Always expected to make miracles with subpar teams.
Fully deserved

Yeah, I've always liked Maurice. Winnipeg was in a slump earlier in the year, and he really stuck up for his players instead of saying things like they need to be better. Winnipeg got shafted pretty hard between Trouba not wanting to play there and the weird Byfuglien situation.

I wasn't clear. I was arguing that *if* we keep Pageau he would have to be our 3LC in 2 years or the rebuild was a bust. And if we did keep him and he's our 3LC, the he has to be below $4.

Oh...yeah, you weren't clear but now I get it. Yeah, Pageau is the ideal 3rd line centre. Also, with the cap continuously going up, I think you could get away with paying a 3rd line player $4.5M or whatever, especially in our situation where some of our top players will be on ELCs or bridge contracts.

My predictions/comments:

Both our #1 picks this year will be on the roster. I'll say one centre, one winger (oh I guess you have that too)

Don't see Chlapik making it long term.

Logan Brown will either stick around next year or be traded.

Pinto will be on that roster.

Bruce Boudreau fired by the Wild. Guess that answers the question "Who will last longer in Minny: Boudreau or Galchenyuk?"

- Yupp. But I don't think Pinto makes the jump until 2 most likely 3 years out.
- Apparently Max Veronneau is being shopped around. Probably as a sweetener in a deal.
- Maybe not in-season but I can see Brown added to a 2nd rd pick to move into the 1st rd this summer.

Oh boy I was just looking at Duchesne’s stats for this year. I know the press aren’t doing so well this year but this is atrocious. 11G and 35p. I bet this is the last time they touch an senators C in a while.

Can't wait to see what the draft lottery fairy brings us this year.

Probably both picks slide 4 spots and we won't have any top 5 picks.
