Too early for playoff talk. But I must say, the team is looking ready for a playoff push.

Our goal tending is actually one of the reasons I think we can go far in the playoffs. Andy has shown he is capable of going on a hot streak that can last a while, the last half of the season and the season he carried Colorado into the playoffs. Couple a good playing Andy with our offense and defense and I say Buckle Up

Ottawa was expected to finish low in the standings and PM has frequently said Ottawa is in a rebuild process and they're doing it the right way - about 5 years away from stability/competitiveness. I think Ottawa is 1 year away.

Not only is Ottawa doing fantastic w/ their youthful roster, but look how deep they are in prospects: Silfverberg, ZJ, DaCosta, JOB, Petersson, Hoffman, Stone, Caporusso, Prince, Cannone, DD...and that's just the forwards. This team is stacked!

I don't expect Murray to move any of these guys this deadline, but I think Ottawa will be even better next season and with Alfie in (what I assume) will be his last season I think Murray is going to take a shot and unload some of these guys for cup-contending roster additions next season or at the deadline. There simply isn't any room for all these promising players to play in Ottawa and Murray will do the right thing and give some of them a chance to play elsewhere when they are packaged for a big name deal.

I'm not saying ALL of these prospects, but maybe 1/3rd to half by next deadline in order to have a contending roster. I guarantee he has plans for what that roster would be, how he's going to assemble it, and contingency plans if those players are taken or don't become available. He's already struck with the Turris deal.

I was very excited at the season start, and I got depressed and down on the team like everyone else as they'd lose a few games, but I think at the very least they'll finish 8th and have a solid playoff run on which to build. I think Murray has sufficiently stocked Bingo and Elmira and I'm very happy with what I've seen so far.

Look at the defence we have in the wings - Gryba, Schira, Weirdcock, and Borocop - what an upgrade they'll be over Phillips, Gonchar, Kuba and Carkner. I love Phillips and I respect Carkners work to get an NHL contract, Kuba has been playing lights out, but they're probably gone very soon and I'm very happy about the replacements coming in.
I agree with a few of the prospects being traded. I can see Puempel and Da Costa being traded. Those two together, maybe add a pick, could land Perry from Anaheim. Tell me if the value is way off

Way off.

Unless the pick is a first rounder.

And another first rounder.

They'll want a proven NHL young commodity, plus a top pick, plus a prospect or two.

Well, for all the possible subtractions we'll have to have replenishment. How many picks is Ottawa in line for this year? Of the prospect mentioned on hockeysfuture, which ones do we really want to part with while still giving another team some fair value?

I personally would love to give up nothing in return for the best talent...but that's just me.

well he might have been if he can play a game without being unlucky hurt , some people are just prone to injuries and bad luck.. and no one wants to take the chance with him and being so fragile

I think if Murray has the right opportunity to trade for who he thinks is the right guy then he will make a move & use whatever assets are at his disposal. I'm not sure now if he will move any current roster player though the way they are playing but there is still a lot of games before the deadline. It will be interesting to watch what he does or does not do in the next month or so.

Do you Believe? Do you believe that Senderella is trying on the slippers?
