Carolina appears to be a likely partner. They do not nee do to use their 3 slots for Dmen. They have good young Dmen and would like to add experience with all their young guys. Phaneuf or Methot might be a great fit

except they have 4 better dmen.

It makes a difference when you already have the very best Dman on the planet in your lineup. The Sens have 4 D prospects that are close to NHL ready.

And while Phaneuf’s decision to not waive his no-trade clause has made life more challenging for Dorion, he says he was ready for this scenario to unfold several months ago.
“I feel pretty good," Dorion said. "We’ve been prepared for this for over a year. We’ve looked at every possible scenario and we haven’t had a surprise yet. We’re not going to show our cards."

I am a strong believer in the Shanaplan and think the Leaves are headed in the right direction. But they are a long way from being a contender and their fans are somwwhat paranoid.

"I’m spoiled in L.A.,where I walk anywhere I want and not one person’s going to recognize me. If, say, I did for some reason play for the Leafs, I don’t know if I could get used to (the attention) or not. I think that’s the problem why guys don’t sign here.”


Read this as doughty actually saying, I have no interest in ever playing in TORONTO ugh!

No I think it I should just Toronto. Ottawa has a a good share of local players. Brossard, pageau, Ceci, Methot, Borowiecki

From the Toronto SUN

But don’t expect Drew Doughty in Toronto colours or to land anywhere else before his final two seasons with the Los Angeles Kings are up. Even then, Doughty says there are difficulties playing in Toronto that he and many other NHLers believe would preclude them from coming here.

Not true, he talked openly about this over a month ago.

But, he decided no to to disrupt team. Did you miss seeing that the SENs went to game 7 of the ECF

from what I hear, a lot of Sens fans missed their team's performance, because they were waiting for CFL pre-season tickets.

He makes a good point. Very logical. All the players he mentioned signed there. It's not like they were drafted or traded for and had no other choice.

Okay, and since you think that these guys are in such great demand, care to tell us what you think they'll get in return?

Ceci - would you like to state you think Drouin is in the ballpark?

Phaneuf - well?

Methot?

The only one I'd consider trading for is Methot, and I wouldn't trade much to get him.

Leaf fans are crazy. Ottawa will be a force next year. That playoff run was no fluke. It's not like the Sens were minus in goal differential and the only playoff team to give up more goals against than goals for. Oh wait....they were.

Drouin for Sergachev. Sens would not move on Chabot.

Tampa would not take player that had to be protected.

Very smart move by Montreal. Drouin will be a huge star in Montreal.

tampa likely did not want to part with a 1st round pick as well since they would have had to add with that deal. they took the smaller deal instead

Ottawa will lose Methot exactly in the same way as Tampa was destined to lose a high quality player unless the moved Drouin or another player from their protected list.
