<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sensibleguy</b></div><div>Here it is in a nutshell, the OP wants Batherson, probably worried about the Marchand injury, which isn't really serious and should take about 6 months to get back to 100%. That's not 6 months of recovery, that's 6 months to 100%, sorry for repeating, but some people reading this might not get it at first. Marchand has a decent contract, considering all he does, but everyone gets old, and Ottawa has no use for him. Here's the kicker, most teams don't trade for players to trade away. It happens sometimes, but it's very rare, I can only think of Hoffman recently. Ian Cole was part of a package and wasn't the primary return. I'm sure there's a lot of animosity over that among the participating GM's, and ranks right up there with offer sheets in terms of bad blood.</div></div>
Nah the OP is quasi trolly and doesn’t know what he’s doing. He proposed the biggest gift for Ottawa of all time, and you seemed to turn it down. Someone handed you a 10K winning scratcher and you said, nahhh, I’d have to go cash it. No thanks.
Marchand probably won’t miss any time.
Moving on, because i can’t take you seriously.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sensibleguy</b></div><div>Ottawa doesn't need to trade Anisimov. They have more than enough cap space, and his salary is only $1.5MM this season.
Batherson is 10 years younger than Marchand, and fits into the Senators rebuild, and Marchand definitely doesn't fit into the Senators rebuild. Yes he has been a good player, for a lot of years, but Ottawa isn't competing this season, and maybe not next season, and when they are, Marchand will be 34, and Batherson 24.
Batherson isn't just the number one prospect in Ottawa, he's one of the best prospects on the league.
Ottawa easily rejects your offer</div></div>
Are you out of your mind? You’re getting an elite player for nothing. Turn around and flip him for multiple firsts.
