- Playoff Team
- Young and up and coming
- A spot waiting for him in the top 4
- An offensive style of play that suits his style from everything I've read
- Good track record with college kids
- An even better track record with developing elite level dmen

Very few teams in the league can offer what Ottawa can offer him, imo.
Karlsson at , would have to play behind him.

It will most likely be tomorrow since the development camp starts on Wednesday.

You understand how hockey works, right? Karlsson can't play 60 minutes a game.

They're probably just making sure they get the right guy. Apparently Crawford has been interviewed twice but Ralph Krueger is still the front runner.

Like me, you personally have no idea what goes on in the mind of a professional athlete, making judgment calls for them is how do you say, Delusional.
i think its better for Edmonton to have a Coach then not have one but that will not discourage him signing with them one bit. Hearing what the GM has to say its important but its probably as important to hear what Coach says because he is the one that gonna play him.

In the end of the day though, its not that big of a deal but an extra bit of selling they are missing.

Did I say I knew where he was signing? Actually, even though I personally have never played professional sports, I have close friends and relatives that have that I talk to on a regular basis (and no I'm not telling some anonymous person on the internet who they are). Stop being intentionally obtuse. Unless they have a HC in place he's not signing there. That is not making a judgement call nor do I need to be inside the athlete's head to figure that one out.

Why not? If he deserves to play then he will play. It's not like this UFA crop is loaded with defensive talent. Why not take a gamble on a young defensemen from college?

I agree. He only has to sign a 2 year ELC. He is going to pick the situation that is best for him. Besides, its not like they are going to sign someone that is a huge 'tard or something, and risk pissing of / stunting the development of Hall, RNH, Eberle, Yak etc. I am a Wings fan, but if I were a 21 year old sought after offensive D-man, it would be near impossible to pass up an opportunity to play with those four young players. Think of the possibilities....

You're saying that he is not gonna sign with Ottawa because they have a Norris Trophy winning defensemen?

What if they want to crush everyone elses offers, and let him pick his own coach?

Considering their strategy when pursuing Heatley...I wouldn't be surprised if they did

Ryan Rishaug said he fully expects the Oilers to tell him "We picked Yakupov because we felt that with you we didn't need Murray".

Also, I never gave any reasons why I think he should sign with my favorite team.

Several times you clearly state what he will or won't do, sort of runs counter to your argument.

However completely unsubstantiated claims by a different unknown random internet poster should be taken by the rest of us as carved in stone?

the kids have a saying "I" have seen frequently on these boards....

cool story bro.

Jeez, so many random assertions going on about what'll make Justin choose which city. Guess what, I heard Justin Schultz took a really good dump once at a rest stop outside saskatoon so now he wants to go be a Saskatchewan Roughrider instead.

I think with the Sens (mostly Bryan Murray's past) tremendous track record of UFA's coming in and being successful has obviously kept us in the mix.
And now even the GM's are getting into it.

nay on the confirmation.

Quote:
I believe we have a shot, Senators assistant GM Tim Murray told The Team 1200 Monday. I believe its down to 3-5 teams, and I believe were one of those teams.
It's extremely doubtful that the Senators or any team has had any meaningful discussions with his agent on the first day he's allowed to talk to teams. Schultz wasn't even supposed to meet with his agent on Monday.

Sounds like the Sens just want to drum up some interest for their fans.

Ottawa could easily fall into the same fate as Colorado who looked good, young up and coming and then missed the playoffs the following season. It's not like the Sens made it easily either.

They're a bubble playoff team.

The Canucks, Oilers and Leafs all play an offensive style. He could fit into the Top 4 of all 3 of these specific teams as well.

You're bang on about elite level dmen as they've done that with Chara and Karlsson now.

Track record with College kids? I believe every team has a few of those.

In addition, im sure fans of each team could provide a couple of extra things that the others couldnt.

I dont see a frontrunner personally but I've going by what I've seen from the Usual TSN guys who stated that Canada is his preference.

I really don't care if you believe what I posted or not. You said that I don't know what goes thru the mind of a professional athlete and I mentioned that I know a few so I have more of an idea than most. All I said was that he wouldn't sign if there was no HC in place and supposedly one will be hired by Wednesday so the point is moot.
