At best #6 defender. Maybe Ottawa gets more out of him like they did with Reilly, but it doesn't look good right now.

Could've probably just got him on a two-way deal. Don't love it for the Sens.

Price is a bit steep, but that’s probably the price to play for Ottawa. Reminds me of Mike Reilly last year - find some depth guy who might have more to give

Delsaster is 3 years older though, a guy on the wrong side of 30 doesn't usually have "more to give".

Anaheim and Columbus have been paying Del Zotto league minimum for the last two seasons basically.

I voted no.

Ottawa needs space for their young players. Del Zotto is fine but this doesn't make much sense.

The drastically overpaid a guy the Don't even need. Don't get this move at all, and it kind of makes me fear that the Sens Don't see Mete or Brannstrom as NHL regulars.

Gonna have an opening lineup of

Chabot-Zaitsev
Del Zotto-Zub
Holden-J.Brown

I don't believe overpaying Del Zotto is the end of the story.

The only way this makes any sense is if we are packaging Brannstrom/Mete together in order to make a big trade for someone.

I wonder who it could be smile

I'm calling it will be an obscene overpay for someone like Ryan Strome.

We gave up Mark Stone for Brannstrom.

I'm hoping that if we move out Brannstrom, we get back somebody very special at the very least.



I also hope that special somebody signs a long-term extension in Ottawa.

Because we deserve players that want to be here smile

I'm hoping for that as well, but I'm preparing to be extremely underwhelmed and saddened by the deal.

I would also recommend preparing yourself for joy and happiness.


We needed to trade out Dadonov and many people on this site thought we wouldn't get much for him.

Pierre Dorion did well on that front.


Keep the faith smile

I dont know if they needed him, but if he plays regularily..hes fine, but struggles when he is in and out of the line up.

Pairing Del Zotto with Zub should be better than Mete and Zub, and for those wondering what about Brannstrom, the offseason isn't over yet.

$2MM isn't a lot of money, and it's back loaded a bit giving the Sens a cheap first season and a deadline trade option not on an expiring contract.

So they sign him, boost his value with Zub, and then move him at the TDL for another 2022 asset.
