***Warning, opening up of old thread to see how we predicted ***

I thought this exchange came close:

Last year playoffs were 6gp, 4g, 2a, 6pts +2. A hard player to shut down, and a "knows-what-it-takes" veteran who would still like the ring, so the type of playoff scorer that Mucks would look for to fill the #1 LW spot. I expect cost would be either a 1 pick and a so-so prospect, or a good prospect and a mid pick, although I do hope it is cheaper for the Sens.

Note that he is a UFA2B, so he can return to Washington if he and they wish it whenever NHL hockey resumes after this season.
Note that I was wrong on the latter he has an option year.

Some less than accurate:

Same kind of rumors had Jagr traded yesterday.

But...Bondra has the best power play one timer in the NHL. Potted his 10th ppg last night under pressure.

But, there is no deal here.
