Our prospect pool is deeper than yours?

Considering the sens have no reason to trade Hoffman and hes nearly or is NHL ready. Yes.

Also how prospects are ranked by team depth is meaningless.

With the injuries and the wealth of offensive players and the wealth of D we have, there's no reason to not witness a trade go down amongst our two teams.

Robert Bortuzzo for Hoffman?

Or

Hoffman / Gonchar for ????

The reason is simple, injuries and lack of d.

Actually the Sens do not lack defenseman. We are missing 1 top 4 dman and have multiple players that can play on the bottom pairing. Sens do not need bottom pairing dmen.

Why would Ottawa do this?

Strait is NHL ready and he'll likely be a steady contributor somewhere, if not Pittsburgh, but Lovejoy has little to no value. With Ottawa being depleted on the blueline as it is, they're not going to move one of their better defensemen for a potential 5/6 and a 7th.

If they waited a little while, they could just claim Lovejoy off of waivers.

Trade talk dies pretty quick when it starts with a proposal like that.

That doesn't mean he's not NHL caliber. The Pens just have a ton of defensemen, it doesn't mean he's crap, he's been a victim of the numbers game here.

He's been NHL ready, it's just matter of who he'll be playing for.

Yes but we have multiple players who have top 4 potential.

Lovejoy is borderline top 4.













Top 4 defensemen named Ben who were born in February, went to Dartmouth and have been paired with Joey Mormina.

It's a tough list to crack.

Sens need Gonchar, ask again at the deadline. If we're out of the playoff race then the asking price should be pretty low. Not sure what teams would offer but i'd settle for something as low as a 3rd or 4th round pick.

I doubt the Sens will be trading Gonchar this season until the trade deadline & only then if they are out of the playoff race. If not, they will likely keep him & let him walk at the end of the season when his contract is up.

Yes.

Hoffman will be a regular on the Sens at some point this season and will see more time than Zibanejad, Stone, and anyone else in Bingo.

True, but I wasn't the one who suggested that asinine proposal with strait or lovejoy.
