i guess it's a waiting game now. right now he's not better than the rest but he could potentially get there by the end of the season.

He had 31 points in his last 27 games with Formenton and Brown. Now he gets DeBrincat and Giroux. Plus a full season at centre, where he was significantly better at both ends of the ice than when he was on the wing. 70 points is probably 90% likelihood. Wouldn’t be shocked if he hit 90.

Remember when he started the year on wing with Tierney and couldn’t buy a goal . Tierney is trash

Not sure why Florida picked him up. He’s regressed defensively and has no finishing ability at all.

He can finish off his body just not his stick

Kicking takes skill, scoring with your foot should be legal

yes but that realistically could just be a hot streak. also now with debrincat and giroux stutzle will have more competition for ice time and pp opportunities. 58 pts to 85+ pts is a big jump.

He should get like 50-55 assists . He just had guys that couldn’t finish

Dubas, can you please spare us the suspense and trade Kerfoot and Holl now please and thank you.


Kadri is stalling the market rn so teams arent wanting to trade or sign players as quickly

Its like Durant and the NBA until both are signed or in Durant's case traded not much movement gonna happen

Basically its a waiting game and everyone got their popcorn and drinks and are just waiting for the main event

Like I feel a deal for both is done but nobody wants to make a move until what I said above happens

Also I feel Sakic trying to move Girard to sign him but who knows

I don’t think a single Sens fan would be shocked if he put up 90pts this year. Not saying he’s gonna do it , just that there would be no shock


not saying it isn't possible but only 15 forwards scored 90 or more this season and not a single one of them were 21 or younger. looks like the youngest would be matthew tkachuk or matthews, both 24 and from the 2016 draft.

I see 2 things

1. He gets hit with the magic of Florida and goes off for a season. Remember when Accari scored 20 goals randomly

2. Goes on waivers

Hughes was on pace for 94 🤷‍♂️ I think Stutzle should hit 70 with ease next year, and I think he coulda got there this year if he’d started at centre. If him, DeBrincat, and Giroux click, look out.

Hughes is a lot better player than Stutzle IMO.

i see the 70's as a pretty realistic number. i think he signs an 8 year deal around 8mil. same with debrincat. i think he'll sign something that starts with an 8.

If that happens I’d be over the moon. I think both will strongly outperform anything that starts with an 8 over the lifetime of the contract.

Again Hughes has an extra year on Stutzle. I think Stutzle is going to be an elite point per game player

In that case, Kadri just sign already.
