I’ve been saying giving up an Eberle or Bailey in different trade scenarios recently but after watching the last ten games or so I honestly don’t think we can. This team is beyond desperate for offensive depth.
- Cptmjl

Swapping Stone for Bailey makes this team better. They literally can't add anyone without making a roster move. Ladd is coming back whether anyone likes it or not, that'll push Spoonboggle out. Then you've got:

Lee-Nelson-Eberle
Ladd-Barzal-Bailey
Beau-Filppula-Komarov
Martin-Casey-Cal
Dunegroggle

Someone's gotta go unless you plan on dressing 5 D and 13 forwards

I'm not dying to send Beau to the AHL, because that's about the only other move that is plausible and would create space on the roster for another forward.

We need Stone I don’t care if we give up wahlstrom, Dobson, Wilde, and three firsts.

Yeah I get that but I would rather just throw in kuhnackl into any trade to create a roster spot then a player who actually contributes goals or assists to the team😂.

Yeah but you're removing Moonroggle to make room for Ladd. His movement has already been accounted for. Since we're, for all intents and purposes, "acquiring" Ladd at the deadline then you'd have to make two corresponding moves to accommodate Ladd and hypothetical-new-forward.

Bridgeport has called up G Evan Buitenhuis from Worcester. I don't think there's trade or injury involved. Informed suspicion: Good news by noon.


.....does Thomas Greiss have trade value...?

Also, you still have Bailey in that line up even though we “traded” him😂😂😂
Remove him then you’ll see what I’m talking about😂

I've been on the Stone for Bailey package for a while. His contract is not outrageous and the Sens will need vets that will not give them bad press.

I would say he definitely does but I can’t imagine we would trade him. Didn’t Lameriello hear Tanner say our goaltending is the only reason we’re winning?

Dump or jettisone lower end talent with picks/prospects if we’re making a trade. Kuhnackl would be the odd man out Komarov and Johnston would actually hurt the trade because of their contracts.

I mean the guy said he's got an "informed suspicion" that there's good news, even though he doesn't think it's a trade?

If he comes back and tweets that one of the Bridgeport goalies' wives gave birth to a kid or something I'm driving to Bridgeport this afternoon and kicking that guy right square in the dick.

I hope a couple contending teams nab other wingers and the Sens get stuck holding the bag when Lameriello is the only dude left when the music stops.😂

Not sure who is more stupid? The Sens for thinking they can sign Stone or Stone for even considering it.😂

The asking price for Stone is reportedly two firsts and a young NHL-ready player/prospect.

That'd probably be: 2019 1st, conditional 2020 1st (if he signs) and Beauvillier. Would you do that? I'd honestly have a hard time saying no.

Stone seemed to have genuine interest in staying. I don't get the feeling he's a "loves the spotlight" kinda guy, which may be something that works in our favor.

I’m slowly becoming less a fan of Beau by the day but I don’t hate him before someone jumps down my throat. With that said even I have a hard time giving up consecutive firsts but I probably would do this... Maybe they would bite on an Aho instead of Beau? Kid is NHL ready and has a decent ceiling...

That team is going to continue being a tire fire for years to come. There’s literally zero positivity from any angle connected to that team now or in the foreseeable future. I can’t see anyone willingly signing up for that...

Maybe, that'd probably be the sticking point in the negotiations. Picks are picks, but the real debate is on who's NHL ready and how high guys' ceilings are.

Here, based on what you added to your post before...

https://www.sportsnet.ca/...nators-high-asking-price/

“The market is drying up on Mark Stone for the Ottawa Senators, for no other reason than because they’re ask is so high,” Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos reported Saturday on Hockey Night in Canada‘s ‘Headlines’ segment. “They’d love to mirror the pieces that they got with Duchene. The difference is the prospects out of Columbus are regarded as maybe Bs and Cs, and what they’re looking for for Stone is grade-A — guys that actually can step in and play right away.

“And right now, there doesn’t seem to be any teams biting, including the Winnipeg Jets.”


Maybe they ultimately take something like 19 1st, 20 conditional 1st, Aho and Bellows. Still a hefty price, but it'd allow us to keep Beauvillier in the fold.

Chabot is a hell of a bright spot. He's having an unreal year. But yea....that's about it. The rest is a disaster.

The future of that franchise between Karlsson leaving, Melnyk, Dorion, losing what could be Hughes in the next draft, etc is so (frank)ing bleak Stone would be a (frank)ing moron to stay there. Sorry get over whatever bizarre attachment you have to that craptastic city or team😂
