I really didnt think they needed him, but for this price and term- its a no brainer. They can lose Connor Brown and wont miss him- other than on the PK.

Fake news.


What do you mean? I haven’t seen a thing to criticize about his decisions since the Murray attempted trade.

Should be a great fit for player and team. The most value could be to the young sens players

Huh?


Why would Ottawa spend the 7th overall pick to dump Matt Murray on the Sabres instead of spending only a 3rd round pick to dump him on the Leafs?

And when we can spend the 7th overall pick on Alex DeBrincat instead?

Doesn't make any sense.



Darren Dreger et al. got played by Pierre Dorion.

Nothing else to it.

The Claude! Pretty exciting offseason. Coupled with new downtown arena news. Lots of positivity finally. Great time to be a sens fan

it's official, Ottawa's rebuild is over. Giroux gets to play for his hometown team and with not too much cap hit either, they'll be fun to watch this season.

Cries over being saddled with EK65's contract

Probably because Toronto got desperate for a goaltender and took a lesser return, also draft day deals much different then a normal deal like in FA

My point is that sometimes, teams will use the press as negotiating tactics against teams they are trading with.

The Buffalo Sabres did that against the Vegas Golden Knights by planting a story that Calgary offered Matthew Tkachuk for Jack Eichel.

Age is my only concern here. Solid win, even if he drops off a little. ... If he drops off a lot, LTIR.

unless Dorian/Adams deny that, which they haven’t, if they haven’t it probably means that there we’re actually talks to trade Murray to Buffalo. I
