Appears like a weird trade... are these guys under contract next year? Does Ottawa still think they can make the playoffs? Giving up a 1st when seemingly under reconstruction is a little odd to me.

I have a feeling Murray is setting up something else... maybe has a feeling that he can package comrie with kuba to land a specific player he is targeting, or a more valuable pick/prospect than the one he sent in that deal.

otherwise WTF? Ottawa has almost no chance to make the playoffs, especially with alfredsson out for at least the next 10 days. Comrie does not change that...

if he does end up turning around and moving Comrie for a better return, Snow will once again look like a fool...

Honestly, I think the other teams are focusing in our lack of toughness on the backend, and pressuring the d so hard, its killing us.

Build a soft blueline, like BG has, and the opposition attacks it. It took 25 games or so, but the other teams figured it out. Soft forwards + Soft Defense = turnovers and scoring chances.

Jarvis is trying to fix it by having 5 back, but soon as they get out of position the other teams are beating the **** out of us down low.

We can't establish a forecheck because of this team he assembled, and it comes back to haunt us.

Too small, not enough grit/toughness ... = getting destroyed.

Campoli makes a third of what Bouillon does, and contributes more. He's not a bad pickup for a team that needs as many value players as they can get to offset the big 3. Comrie's a good little player, overpaid but his contract is off the books at seasons end. Plus he can always be flipped 10 days down the road.

A late first is still quite steep, I was thinking a third and fourth rounder on top of Mccammond.

Comrie nor McAmmond are under contract next year.

Uhmm... Ottawa traded with the Islanders, not the Sharks.

I didn't realize it was SJ's 1st. If thats the case then I think this trade is somewhat balanced. Islanders get another 1st which is huge, and Ott gets a talented 2ndline center, and a top 4 D, potential top pairing D.

This makes no sense at all. How does Ottawa trading away a 1st when they're not going to make the playoffs make the Schneider trade look bad?

I don't think it's that bad as far as a Sens perspective ( well If I'd be a Sens fan, I'd be pissed to see a 1st rounder gone...) but at least it sends a message that you're doing everything you can this year. You add some more secondary scoring. So it's Comrie for McAmmond and Campoli for a late 1st. I always like Campoli, but as late as it is, it is a big price to pay.

Not as dramatic, unless Comrie suddenly wakes up and sign there long term which nobody expects at this point.

Doubtful. Burke is only letting him go if some team severely overpays.
