Need more scoring bad. Struggled to score and trading Roy doesn't help. He had some big goals this past season.

Great deal for you guys, I'd take Ott on my team over Roy 10 times out of 10.

FTR Ott isn't a center, he's a winger who takes a lot of faceoffs.

I like the fact that the team is looking to get tougher, but I am not a huge fan of this trade. I'm in the minority that really liked Roy and felt he was worth more on our roster than selling him below what I feel his value to be.

Kings fan here, just saying thanks for taking Ott out from the West, that is a guy you love when he is on your team and is a pain in the ass to play against.

If the Ducks want a defenseman AND a 2nd line center, it'll be impossible to pull off - unless somehow Murray told Regier that he wanted Ott and not Roy but didn't have what Dallas wanted. Regier trades Ott and Sekera for Ryan - which more or less would end up being Roy + Sekera from Sabres' end but the Ducks would be taking on only $5M in cap space with Ott/ Sekera.

I know....far-fetched.
The Sabres wouldn't turn around and deal Ott I don't think. I'd have to think Ott was a guy the Sabres have wanted for some time (if you believe the rumors that the deal was being worked on since February), and Ott tweeting about becoming a Sabre would mean he didn't know about it, and that doesn't seem likely...if he was being flipped, he probably would have been informed.

Pardy? I wonder if they're moving a defenseman in another deal shortly.

Eh, we'll see. Ruff/Regeir will pretty much try anyone at center.

But if they don't bring in another center, they must really really like Grigorenko. Even then, a Hodgson/Ennis/Grigs top 9 would be scary. Ooozes potential, but so, so young.

This will make them harder to play against. Better gear up the powerplay with Ott, Gerbe, and Kaleta on the same team.....

If the rumors of what Howson has been demanding are true, they wouldn't want Vanek. They'd probably demand Ennis, Foligno, Armia and McNabb and a 1st round pick.

Aside from the foolishness of selling the farm to get Nash when Ryan is a better option, who really thinks Nash has Buffalo on his list of teams?

Don't worry he will be competing in the diving even in the London Olympics. Might go just to heckle him.

This is true, as much as we **** on Roy (which is a lot), he made some big plays for us this season. Alas, more chance for the youngins to step into a bigger role.

I like the idea of Ott on wing in the top-six and bringing in another center. That pushes the FES line down to third line, which takes the pressure off them and allows to them devour bottom-pair D. Also, Ott can bang in 20 on the wing and take the body. He's not exactly Bobby Ryan, but he's an upgrade over Tropper...

So if they do plan to play Ott at wing, I expect a move for a center. Either a Jokinen signing or an off-the-map Marleau deal.

Ott was mainly used with Benn because Benn was playing his first season as a center and they used Otter as the faceoff guy many times because Jamie just isn't as good at them. Ott should not be in your top 6 full time, but he can do well there if he keeps his antics in check and actually plays the game.

Off the ice he'll quickly be a fan favorite if he continues the kind of work he did here in Dallas. He's one of those guys who is great to fans and their kids, remembers that the fans are what make him able to play the game.

Yeah, I thought at first they would bury him, but I can't imagine they took on 2M in salary to bury just to get rid of Roy...
