That's a huge stretch. Murray never once says Kadri's name, just says "I'll flip you". For all we know he wanted Cowen all along. That's the point. Nobody but Murray and his staff knows. Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. Hell, maybe he wanted Scott Glennie and was trying to get in front of Dallas.

But the idea of getting their hands on Nazem Kadri and developing him themselves must still interest the Senators. Especially now that Kadri has shifted to the wing and can play either position.

It's just a matter of price. Maybe not for Spezza but to deny the fact that if available, Kadri would tempt Ottawa, is ridiculous.
Here's another example: Burke was visibly upset last year when Murray traded up to get in front of him and drafted Matt Puempel. That is "fact" according to the standard you've established.

So we'll be nice to you and trade you Puempel for Kessel... It's a fair deal since obviously Burke was really interested in Puempel at the time.

You can thank me later.
