I think I'll prepare to get flamed now.
Crazy is right, go put on your straight jacket. This deal in no way puts Ottawa any closer to bringing the cup back to Canada. You do this deal and all of a sudden our forward depth is gone, Ottawa strives off of rolling 4 good solid lines, this would desimate it. The only way havlat goes to dallas is if Morrow comes back, not going to happen. Our defence is fine, quite good actually and will have no problem when the playoffs roll around. I think that you would be hard pressed to find a sens fan willing to give Vermette and a 1st for Zubov, he is worth it, but Vermette has been lights out this year and is our only good young LW (a weakness in our organization). The only thing I can say about this deal is "terrible".
