Or I'd keep the Redden/Havlat package together and send them to Vancouver for Bertuzzi.

Ottawa homers aren't going to like that one.


One more thing, keep Jokinen away from Ottawa.

Ofcourse, he can also make plays. Havlat and Jokinen would compliment each other well.

Both are excellent choices. Both would be valuable addition to the 2nd PP unit. But Jokinen is a step above at this point.
I'd take the the player with more playoff experience (quite successful playoff experience to boot) over the inexpereinced player, I don't think Jokinen has every tasted post season hockey. This team has Heater, Alf, and Havlat as goal scorers - another "setup" man like Weight would really help the 2nd line, Havlat especially.

Because it is a terrible trade.

1. Solves the cap situation.
2. Brings in a player that will instantly step into top duties. (no picks or prospects....waiting game).
3. Plays a Muckler brand of hockey.

Luongo has already stated he wants more money than any Sens player. I don't see how that's a good trade really.

Don't like the trade, but I couldn't agree with you more on the Jokinen subject. If we are getting a #2 guy, I want someone who I know has had playoff success. I've been witness to too many unexperienced (playoffwise) players folding under the pressure of the big lights. Not a gamble I want to make, unless it is for a 3rd round pick - but we know that ain't happening.


Ps. I'd like the trade if it was Redden/Havlat/pick for Ohlund/Bertuzzi, but I doubt Vancouver does that.

I just wanted to throw it out there, I mean what are the odds of that actually happening? I would put my money on closer to zero. I figure it would start some interesting discussion though. And it really does matter about the whole money situation, maybe Luongo would take less money to play for a major contender (I think we all believe Ottawa will be a top team next year too).

Like the other person said, depending on the money I thought it could maybe help our Salary Cap situation. I've always put really really high value in goaltenders, thats why I offered up so much for a calibre player like Luongo.

Luongo looked fairly normal against the Sens Saturday night, Hasek and Emery seem to be playing very well and IMO Hasek will probably be back next year. Unless Hasek gets a season ending injury I don't see the Sens picking up a goalie at all and I don't think that Florida is looking to ship Luongo out without significantly improving their team like a Peter Forsberg for Luongo and that's not going to happen. We don't need him, we have Hasek argueably the best goalie in NHL history and Emery has already made the jump frpm the AHL to the NHL and done well, he can only get better.
