Team Explanation
I've often said that Ottawa is not a great destination for UFAs.


But if our UFAs for next year want to stick around, this is what I think they would sign for.

                      it somehow they can pull off a trade getting like 2 forwards on 2nd line and RD it would help alot. hopefully once the top teams sign whatever they can of ufa ottawa can always sign what is left over..short term of course. We have the asset (prospects/picks) that could be used to get help out front and rd

                      Love Connor Brown but for a 29 year old to get a five year contract at 6m per, seems pricey. You made a nice comparison with Pageau, though Pageau was younger, but looking at that deal now, I betcha the Isles think they overpaid for a third line centre..

                      Brown easily gets this in free agency but ottawa shouldn’t give it to him

                      I think you have it backwards on Brown/Pageau.

                      it's a 6 year contract at 5 million per.
