I think it would take a little more to get the deal done, but just figured there would be something to get it going.
No it's not a start.
Strait is not NHL caliber and Lovejoy arguably isn't either.
If the Sens wanted crap players like that, they could sign just about anyone if free agency. A guy like Kent Huskins is better than those 2 players.
The Sens have equivalent or better d-man on their AHL team like Benoit, Borowiecki, Gryba and even Eckford. Horrible proposal.
You WILL have to give something of value, because Gonchar is valuable. There's no way around it.
