At this point, I have a hard time seeing Stone being traded. Especially after seeing the Maloney interview on TSN.

I mean, Melnyk sucks, so maybe they do something stupid at 2:59, but there really shouldn’t be any desperation on their part to trade him.

Yeah losing a top-tier elite player for nothing and a 1st overall pick in the same year wouldn't be anything to worry about

Zuccarello is out for a month btw. Talk about a trade probably not working out.

I don’t think he’s gonna leave.

In fact I can see them doing the extension today. A friend of mine who’s a huge Sens fan seems to think the only issue is front loaded money. Well, and Melnyk.

Forgot Vegas is in the mix for Stone now. They could, I guess, cough up Glass or Brannstrom.

Jordan Weal is headed to Montreal, while Michael Chaput is going to Arizona.

He's an idiot if he doesn't, at least, take the UFA meeting period to meet with other teams. I think your friend is wrong.

Stone would be nuts to want to re-sign with this team. Sens should take the best offer.
- ses111

I agree, but apparently he doesn’t really want to go.

The way the Jets jumped at Hayes, tells me they don’t see Stone getting traded.

He could be. My buddy lives in Ottawa so I mean he’s inundated by their media and goes to their games regularly but that’s what he was telling me. Lol, he despises Melnyk.

With Stone, it could be the classic case of being a giant fish in a small pond. He apparently loves the city. He’s a fan favorite for sure.

I saw that. He mentioned Lou does not want to mess with the chemistry though. When Leo is with Barzal you can shove chemistry.

I would run so far away from that owner. He makes some of the Isles former owners look good.

There's a lot to despise about Melnyk. I learned, the hard way, last year that nobody in the media really has a clue about what pending UFA's are going to do. I do know that, for any human, jumping at the first deal offered without being able to hear other offers is fiscally irresponsible.

Unless OTT meets every ask that Stone's camp was initially looking for, I think he'd be smart to hear what other teams offer in the interview period before July 1st. Not like there would be anything precluding him from being able to sign back in OTT if that's where he really wanted to be.

I agree with your standpoint completely. Why stay with that team when they’re seemingly going nowhere with a blowhard dunce as an owner? This isn’t baseball, he isnt Bryce Harper. Stone will get paid on July 1st whether it’s the Sens or somewhere else.

It's either now or the summer but Lou better find a way to get a star winger for Barzal. Lou and Barry have to be able to attract real talent.

I mean I guess it's possible that he likes it there so much that he doesn't care about other offers or more money. Everyone's got their own motivating factors and they're all different. Maybe he surprises everyone and re-signs today, it just seems highly unlikely.

Even if that's the case though, I'd still take the free pass to go get a run at the playoffs with a successful team and then just go sign back there July 1

I would be happy with a even half way decent legit NHL player. The bar has been lowered.😂
