This does not leave room for an impact forward with Barzal. I'm fine with MDC on a 3rd line with a better center. If Isles bring back Nelson as 2C, they need to bring in a Panarin for Barzal. Going to real tough for the Isles to get to the next level without another big time offensive player.

If we resign Nelson I think he will be in Filpula's spot next year. He is NOT a 1 or 2 C in my opinion. I think if Lou gets a swing at Duchene in open market he is going to get it done.

Unless this team goes on a huge run, it's not a good idea to bring back basically the same team. Duchene or Panarin needs to be brought in. I'm not sure the team brings in both Duchene and Nelson? You still need the wing for Barzal.

Nelson chasing Money. Some stupid GM will give him a huge contract.
Koivula will be our #3 center. This guy is getting better with every game.

Im in support of what Lou did. For starters we are in 1st place and unlike other years, i am a believer if it aint broke dont try to fix.

Lou went for players that were major upgrades and lost. Cant overpay for UFAs.
Thanks Vegas for signing Stone to 9.5M year b/c Lee's price tag just went up.

These salary increases are validation that we are headed for another lockout in few years.

i dont think Nelson will be on this team next year. Agree with you, he isnt a 1 or 2C.
Im not paying someone 6-7M a year to be our 3C either. thats is what Nelson looking for.

I also think Nelson's best spot is 3C. Isles need to get Duchene or Panarin. No idea what they do if this miss out on both?

Nelson isn't looking for 6-7M with a career high of 45pts

Or, since the team is in 1ST fuucking place, Lou didn't want to upset the chemistry or mortgage the future for a rental that may or may not have signed an extension. I don't know what the hell you're crying about. No they have not been playing great lately but I think that'll turn around quickly. We don't know what offers were sent out or what the asking price from Lou was. So why don't you just sit back and let the rest of the season play out. Enjoy the fact that our team is doing well and the future looks bright.

Need 2 points tonight. Can't look past Calgary. Worry about Toronto on Thursday.
- chazpet

After the relative beating we took last week, there’s no way Trotz or the team itself will overlook this game. That was the soundest another team has played against us this calendar year.

I'd rather use some of Eberle's money towards signing Panarin.

I'm not a big fan of Eberle and where does he play if the Isles sign Panarin and Bailey is still on the team?

I have a pretty strong feeling that they'll end up keeping Lee/Nelson and Eberle is a goner. I like him but he's more of a passenger than he is a driver and they need someone more dynamic.

No irate #Senators fans bothered Pierre Dorion at Navan Arena last night, where he was watching his son play. Of course, he was also accompanied by two police officers and two security guards, who heard him tell #TSN1200 listeners, "if anybody is mad at me, be made at me there."

I agree chief. I'm good with Lee/Nelson and bringing in Panarin. Eberle does not move this team forward.

I wouldn’t sign him for what he’s making now the way he has played this season. Maybe he’ll turn it around for the rest of the season he is streaky but I have a feeling Lameriello agrees with that sentiment.

Streaky and not exactly what hockey folks would call a "two-way player"

As good a coach as Barry is, Isles are going to need to upgrade the talent on this team and Eberle is playing a position in need of upgrade.

McPhee has some set of balls on him, what a scumbag

“So my understanding is they agree, essentially, to terms on the trade around 2:15 Eastern, Ottawa and Vegas,” began LeBrun. “But then Vegas says to Pierre Dorion, ‘We don’t have a trade unless we sign Mark Stone.’ So then, in the next half-hour as Pierre Dorion is frantically sitting at his office saying, ‘This better not fall apart on me,’ Vegas is negotiating with Newport Sports on an extension for Mark Stone. Vegas is not making this trade without the agreement in place, right.
