Looks like Ladd’s ready, Hickey’s not.

I know this isn’t a popular opinion but I’m happy Ladd is back. He’s a 3rd liner and I’m fine with that. He was actually ok before he got hurt.

Basically he is the best out of the bad batch we have and someone from the bad batch has to play

I know you’ll disagree but I would rather have MDC then Ladd. Thought he was playing pretty well. I get why MDC got sent packing but I’m not looking forward to seeing Ladd out there again. Hopefully he surprises everyone.

Yeah the irrational hate is really only for the fans. I'd rather not see a bunch of vindictive babies running around the ice hacking him and getting off their game. If someone has the chance to line him up and dummy him with a big, clean hit then great. But I'd rather deal with that PP as little as possible and suffocate them to death at ES.

Nashville makes sense but buying a condo before a deal is made or signed? Did he go shopping in-between his games?

Sounds like the guy who said JHS was late again and thats why he was sent down.

Amazing the shat people spew

More like they have to dump him due to him not wanting to sign there. With that said I’m not huge on the idea either. My one hang up is us having zero center depth and none in the pipe line besides Otto. I wouldn’t lose sleep if we didn’t get him or if we did. On the fence with it.

I think when you talk about chemistry, adding a big name center would have the biggest potential impact on that. It's definitely a need they have to address in the offseason, but it's riskier at the deadline in the middle of a good run.

Bringing in a left wing at the deadline to play with Barzal in place of Boonfrackl/Ladd/Dal Colle is one thing. But if you bring in, say, Duchene, you'd have bigger decisions to make. Do you sit Filppula and move Nelson to the third line? Do you put Nelson on the wing when he's been solid at center all season?

I think the center situation waits until after the season. If they do anything, I think it'll be at wing.

100%, that said Nashville does make sense as far as willing to go all in for the Cup as everyone has said. I think if Ottawa can get a sign and trade they will get a far better return. Just hard to get those done but seems possible.

The bold is my issue(albeit little)with passing on Duchene if we have a legit opportunity(I know sounds crazy because of what I just posted). Centers don’t exactly grow on trees and we have a legit need for one. Duchene fits the bill even though I have my reservations. We may have an opportunity to lock him up if thats not facilitated with the trade to begin with. Like I said I’m on the fence😂

He’ll be getting his players all riled up just as much as the fans like he did last game. Whatever it takes.

He doesn’t have to say anything. Aside from the obvious, it’s an important game standings-wise. Plus, the building is gonna be sick. It’s gonna be like the playoff series in ‘02 all over again.

I think Trotz loves when things get ugly. I mean, he gushes about Tom Wilson.

Personally speaking, I'd rather see another shutout than Tavares get abused all night.

That said, both would be pretty nice
