Tkachuk and TkaCHUNK

Created by: TCMonkey
Initial Creation Date: Oct. 6, 2021
Published: Oct. 6, 2021
Team: 2021-22 Ottawa Senators
Team Explanation
This team will be absolutely HORRIBLE until Eichel has surgery, recovers, gets game ready and joins the line up. This mean Ottawa is all but guaranteed a top 5 pick in 2022. BUT THE MOVES HERE should show Tkachuk that the team is committed.
At the deadline we trade Kessel, Tierney, Sanford, Holden, J Brown then just plug the holes until next season when we ice a killer team:
Stützle - Eichel - Batherson
Tkachuk - Norris - Sokolov
Formenton - Wright/Lambert - C Brown
Paul - Greig - Watson

Chabot - Zub
Sanderson - Zaitsev
Mete - JBD
MDZ

*Any BUF fan who screams "this isn't even close" hasn't been watching Shane Pinto.

At this point let’s hold on to Pinto and see what he does.

I don't disagree with you, Pinto could be challenging Norris for that first line before too long. But something of actual value would need to be going the other way and I feel like our 2022 1st would be a very stupid thing to give up right now.

I might be crazy but I’m sending Tkachuk. I’d rather have Eichel at 10 than Brady over 8 tbh. At least we are filling the top centre spot

Don't the Sens need Tkachuck to sign to get them over the low salary cap ceiling ? Or else.

I'm not doing this deal proposed in the OP

In theory, it's 3 first round picks and 3 second round picks, which is already a lot for Eichel in the current context.

However Pinto is worth a lot more than a 1st round pick, he is an untouchable for me.

Yes, with how the off-season played out and now the injury to White and Tkachuk missing training camp, the season might not go really well... I mean, we got rid of Dadonov, acquired Sanford and signed Del Zotto. That's just a terrible off-season. So yeah, no way we should trade our 1st round pick for 2022

Then low ceiling is what is know as "the floor" and the mere addition of Ennis would get them over that. This is not a concern at all.

If Dorion said "We've got a deal in place that sends you to Buffalo for Eichel." it might get Brady to sign quicker than adding bonus money!!
