Alex should plug into our second or third pairing for the remainder of the season. We'll see how he fits into Maurice's "system."

Best of luck in Ottawa, Matt!

Great deal! Anybody got a scouting report on Picard? I don't know a whole lot about him, but I've heard good things.

Haha I was just about to post something like that. Guess there's a new meme.

Also, new Dennis Seidenberg?!??!

Love this deal. Absolutely LOVE it.

From forecaster/THN: http://forecaster.thehockeynews.com/...layer.cgi?3496

Quote:
ASSETS: Skates and moves the puck well. Has poise and maturity with and without the puck. Can be a factor in all three zones and usually displays consistency in his overall play.
FLAWS: Needs to do a better job of keeping opposing forwards honest with more physical play, since he doesn't use his 6-2, 210 frame enough. Also lacks consistency on offense.
CAREER POTENTIAL: Puck-moving defenseman.
He reminds me a lot of Seidenberg when we first got him to be honest. He'll plug in on our 2nd pairing for the remainder of the season (IMO) and likely plays there next year as well. Only 800K cap hit as well, and either 2 or 3 more years of RFA left for him.

Picard is much better puck-mover than Seids. He's deal on Powerplay .

So our defense for next season seems to be starting to form...

Pitkanen - Gleason
Picard - Corvo? McBain? JML?
Carson - Alberts

Nice return. I was thinking we would just get a pick for Cullen, but I guess with Moore getting a 2nd it upped the anty.

Don't know much about Picard, thought the scouting report on him sounds good.

So now we have 7 D and from what I can tell, the team still doesn't want to send Carson down. What's next.

I'm confused... Sens fans are thrilled to be rid of Picard and we are thrilled to have him??? Something doesn't add up...

I wouldn't count out that 2nd pairing spot being Fowler/Gormley/Gudbransson at this point either. Absolutely frightening to have a defense that young if that's what we go with though.

Anyone think Whitney has a deal in place but won't be moved until the last day so he has more time in Raleigh before he moves for a few months?

To be perfectly honest, he's been brutal for us this year.

Picard is new Flyers-drafted defenseman to play with Pitkanen. He will play 25 minutes/game next season and go -34.

Picard has skills, especially on the PP, but for whatever reason he struggled in Ottawa (this year moreso than last year).

He has a lot of potential though, and I think he'll thrive in Carolina. He was the main piece Murray wanted when he traded Meszaros to Tampa Bay.

A defensman that the Sens are happy to ship out of town???? boy that sounds familiar

I think this buys McBain another season in Albany unless he pulls a Sutter in camp

Picard has never had a season with a positive +/- in his NHL career.

So how should Ottawa feel about Cullen? You guys seem pretty happy with the deal, is that because he's bad? :/
