<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>PLDGEY</b></div><div>Sorry can someone explain why OTT would even want Dumba?

1. He is having an incredibly off year.

2. He will have 3 more years on his contract, so he will be up for a huge new contract right when we are looking to sign Lafreniere/Byfield/Stutzle to their big contracts

3. Were not looking to compete, why would we be giving our 1/2C and a 1st for a guy who might not be on the team when we ARE looking to make a playoff run

4. Dumba is an offensive D (who btw isnt producing as such). He is a negative CF% player. We need defensively responsible RHD to pair with our offensively gifted LHD Chabot and Brannstrom

------------------

In conclusion... I would 100% not make the Dumba trade.

Cool with everything else though</div></div>

Totally respect where you're coming from re Dumba. I'm a fan of his. Admittedly he's having an off year this year. But he was on pace for a career year last year and put up 50 pts the year before. He's only 25 and his $6 mil cap hit is very doable for the Sens. Even with Chabot's contract kicking in next year and Tkachuk not far behind, the Sens are a few years away from being an upper cap team. I'm not sold on Logan Brown - hope I'm wrong on that one. We have a defensively sound right-handed dman coming in soon in Bernard-Docker and based on his play at the WJC, I couldn't be more excited to see him as a cornerstone of the Sens for years to come.

Anyway, I think we can all agree that there are bright days ahead for the Sens. We might even give Dorion credit in a few years for crafting a competitive team. Cheers.
