I like tater. He's a favorite and only just turned 27. I think we need to ride it out.. maybe more youth comes up next year and sign a FA or two (as long as they're not 35 - and another draft. You trade younger for older we just get older. It's not like we'll get a superstar for him.

Nashville tends to have high quality D.


If Detroit could steal a Fabbro I wouldn't mind.

I like Tatar (plus my Slav bias), but he's already peaked offensively. $5+ mil is a lot to pay a guy getting under 50 points a year. He's actually scoring at a lower rate than Weiss in his final season.

Think its time we acknowledge that Nyquist/Tatar didn't develop into the replacements for Datsyuk/Zetterberg which they showed the promise of when first coming into the league.


If Detroit can get a D or high D prospect for Tatar or Nyquist I wouldn't mind it. The current D corps if pretty bad.

It still amazes me a .220 hitter with no power in MLB gets more than that. I'm all for getting younger but Tater for Fabbro isn't a deal I see them taking.

I don't see Holland taking many logical deals. But a deal for a top defensive prospect over a capped out middle 6 forward would be a win going forward.

Problem is Poille has a habit of fleecing other GMs.

No doubt but why would the Predators take it.

Forwards are their weak point and they are in a win now mentality.

To Ottawa:
Marian Gaborik
Nick Shore

To LA:
Dioan Phaneuf (Ottawa retains salary)
Nate Thompson

https://www.tsn.ca/senators-trade-ph...shore-1.998261

Salary dump by Senators, with nothing to improve in the future. I think Melnyk is trying to make Ottawa a salary floor team again.

Are you willing to lend Kenny your cellphone?

Look at the 4 trades Kenny pulled off last season.

Jurco out of league (Petruzelli via 3rd rounder)
Smith recently out of league with chance to return (Gallant via 3rd round and 2nd round 2018)
Ott retired (6th rounder 2018)
Vanek went to new team still surprisingly effective (Kotkansalo via 3rd rounder plus AHLer McIlrath)

Kenny did pretty well robbing other teams last deadline.

5 Forward, 5 Defenceman, and 1 Goalie drafted in 2017.
