Matt Carkner to Binghamton

Mirtle confirmed it. Assume its a conditioning stint. Very smart move, no need to rush him back to the NHL.

Not for conditioning stints. I believe the Sens have the option to keep him down there for two weeks. Briere has done a conditioning stint before for sure.

They have a 3 in 3 weekend so it's a good time for the assignment.

Really have to put Brian Lee trade watch on now. They need room for Carkner.

They don't need to trade anyone, they have the roster space to handle all of them.

If Murray makes a trade it will be on his terms not just because Carkner is close to ready.

Kuba cranked his head/neck/upper back into the boards pretty hard the other day. That means that right now, they only have 6 healthy dmen in Ottawa. They'll want to carry 7 and rotate Rundblad, Lee and Carkner through the lineup as the 7th Ds.

No real issue until Kuba is back from injury and by that time, somebody else will probably be injured.

Is there not roster limitations on amount of guys we can carry though? Having(eventually) 8 guys up and ready on D seems excessive.

Carkner being ready could be Murray's terms.

Rundblad/Carkner/Lee for the last spot.

If they get an offer they could set him free.

I believe the roster size is 23 players not including injured players & of course you can dress 20 players. 8 defencemen + 14 forwards + 2 goalies = 24 players. However, Neil, Carkner, Kuba & Regin are injured. If they ever get a full roster keep in mind that they can still send Daugavins or Filatov or Rundblad down to Bingo, they are waiver exempt, to reduce the roster.

Its good to have 8-9 NHL quality defenders in case things like this happen.

Yeah, although no surprise there, the guy would do anything for the team.

Good move, gives them some time and allows him a chance to jump back in to the pro game at a slower level.

I believe Winchester did the same thing last year or the year before that.

Why do people always want to rush our depth out the door?

Anyways, I'm looking forward to Carkner coming back.

Matt Carkner says the plan is to play two of three this weekend, then probably stick around for one more game (Wednesday).

What i'm loving about carkner being in bingamton momentarily is the leadership he'll bring to that dressing room. He has the ability to turn the attitude around over there....even if just for a few games, he can make the environment a lot less toxic. Plus i assume he'll be a top shut down pairing guy over there and provide toughness for the smaller skilled guys. I see him playing 20 minutes a night...maybe not in his first game, but definitely by the time he's played his last.
