I live in Ottawa and it was heavily speculated that Murray was after Kadri as the team needed, and still needs a 2nd line centre. Fisher is best suited as a third line centre. Obviously they did not come out and say "we want Kadri this draft, and show their cards."

As well, if you watch the whole conversation Murray offers an undisclosed goaltender to Burke. Burke responded saying who are you taking, to see if Ottawa wanted Cowen or MSP... as soon as Murray told him, Burke said no thats who we are taking - no further conversation.

There is no real evidence whom the goaltender was, but Auld was traded that summer for pick. I would assume the offer was 7th for 9th + Auld. Wasn't a serious pitch, but it never got into discussion.

Ottawa didn't make an attempt to swap picks with Dallas, thus you have to assume they went with option #2.
