<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Brian2016</b></div><div>And CBJ might not even make the playoffs! Big gamble! This was a good deal for OTT, but everyone keeps thinking about the original Duchene trade last season which was a downright horrible idea. The longer they waited to trade him this season, the less the return.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Brian2016</b></div><div>OTT also has a better shot at a higher draft pick from CBJ than they'd have w/ a team like WPG or CGY. CBJ will likely lose in the 1st round and the pick will end up being a mid-1st.</div></div>

But lets assume Ottawa just traded Turris directly to Nashville (they definitely had that option).

<strong>Here's what Ottawa gave up for Duchene (pick values):</strong>

1. <strong>1st </strong>round pick | <strong>001 </strong>overall - 2019 | <strong>Jack Hughes???</strong>
2. <strong>1st </strong>round pick | <strong>028 </strong>overall - 2017 | Shane Bowers
3. <strong>2nd </strong>round pick | <strong>042 </strong>overall - 2014 | Vlad Kamenev
4. <strong>2nd </strong>round pick | <strong>047 </strong>overall - 2016 | Samuel Girard
5. <strong>2nd </strong>round pick | <strong>058</strong> overall - 2018 | Filip Hållander
6. <strong>3rd </strong>round pick | <strong>063 </strong>overall - 2019 | To Be Determined
7. <strong>6th </strong>round pick | <strong>150 </strong>overall - 2018 | Hammond's Trade Value

<strong>And if that pick becomes Jack Hughes .... it's worth three Duchene's on it's own.</strong>

I won't even discuss the Hoffman and Karlsson trades ....

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CrustyPieMan</b></div><div>Ottawa salvages a pretty good return. Jarmo putting all his chips at the center of the poker table. Bold move for a team that isn’t even in a playoff spot as of now and has no primer on what will happen with Bob and Bread Man.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>OvisBabes</b></div><div>All that for a 1st round exit? smh I guess Kekalainen doesn't have much of a choice</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>friedberg7</b></div><div>Duchene isn't worth all of this. Columbus would be foolish to resign him after this season</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>DSZ</b></div><div>If Columbus resigns Duchene then Columbus wins the trade but if he doesnt then that was a massive payment for a rental , Columbus better make it far in the playoffs their time is almost up</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Brian2016</b></div><div>Huge win for OTT. CBJ is all in w/ Panarin and Duchene. Even bigger win for OTT if Duchene re-signs w/ OTT, but that probably won't happen.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>rangersandislesfan</b></div><div>I'll say Ottawa wins but Columbus might, too. I get that he might be a rental, but the goal is to win the Stanley cup. Still though, risky move from CBJ.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>DSZ</b></div><div>Could be 2 Firsts if he resigns (finally read and understood the conditions) so it does change my opinion a bit</div></div>

<strong>Columbus overpaid .... come on guys?</strong>

1. <strong>Bergman </strong>(a 2nd) = <strong>Abramov </strong>(a 3rd)
2. <strong>Davidsson</strong> = an overage 6th
3. <strong>None </strong>of them project to be an NHL player.

Columbus gave up a mid-late 1st and a 6th round pick for Duchene.
