Bos-Nas-Ott

How bout something based around this.....

Bos- Hornqvist (young 30g winger)

Ott- Savard (one of the few teams he'd be willing to waive his NTC for)

Nas- Fisher (gets to live in the same city as his new wife)

...Obviously not straight up, but maybe as a starting point?

Nashville fans are going to love that rationale.

Seems like the sens aren't giving up enough. Boston also needs to add a little.

Do the Sens even clear enough cap?

Nashville probably needs a first rounder with that as well. Actually on second thought let's jsut take Hornqvist out all together and put a different Pred in, like Legwand or Dumont.

Boston can't afford Legwand and they don't need another center. Dumont wouldn't be bad but it hardly saves us any cap space and by hardly I mean it saves us 7k.

I think Boston would preferably snag a PMD or PMD prospect in the deal.

As far as Nashville goes though, if they want to bring in a center they have to ship one out as well (Legwand, Lombardi, and Wilson I think are pretty set down the middle). I don't see a Fisher to Nashville trade happening period, but if it does it will include a center probably.

Not a bad trade proposal in terms of core players involved but for sure some added pieces are required to even things out... especially going to Nashville.

Ottawa would probably need to give Nashville a good draft pick or a prospect and Boston would need to give up a little something too to Ottawa for helping them clear some huge cap space. Boston might need to give a draft pick or prospect to Nashville as well.

To Ottawa:
Savard
Hunwick

To Nashville:
Fisher
Campoli

To Boston:
Suter

First off, I don't want the Bruins to trade Savard, but these proposals are mostly for ****s and giggles anyway so here's something I would consider.

Ottawa gets one of the best ppg centers in the league since the lockout and a young offensive defensemen.

Nashville gets a young d-man and a 20 goal forward to help their offense.

Boston gets a huge upgrade on the Backend.

Alternatively, if Nashville would like a more expirienced blueliner coming back, Campoli and Hunwick could be factored out, and Boston could send Ference to Nashville. Maybe throw a pick there with him.

Suter isn't going anywhere, especially for Fischer and Campoli.

Ottawa has to be part of the deal simply because Savard dictates where he wants to go and Ottawa is on his short list.

Whether it really matters or not, the Fisher/Nashville link has been made ever since Carrie Underwood entered the picture.

This is really a non-starter, Fisher isn't going anywhere, not even Nashville.

Yeah, leave Suter out of this unless you want to add Toronto's pick and and a good prospect (Colborne, Caron) to whatever you had Ottawa sending Nashville.

But about the original proposal, Ottawa says yes, Nashville says no, and I think Boston also says no. Hornqvist isn't really a Chiarelli/Neely type player and you don't trade a number one center unless you're rebuilding or you know you have another number one (which Krejci and Seguin are not yet, and Bergy is more of a shutdown center now).

Actually, Ottawa I think would also say no, it was reported that we could have picked up Savard for a soft trade, and we didn't. I don't see us turning that down and trading a core player instead. Yes, the salary cap is an issue that I have to take into account, but so is Fishers NMC which I don't think he would waive anyways.

Yeah, I just don't really believe the rumors that the Bruins were willing to trade Savvy in a "soft deal." It really made no sense. There are better ways to make cap space, he's on one of the best contracts in the league, and appears to have recovered from the concussion. There's always the issue of what happens if he gets another concussion, but that's no reason to trade him in a soft deal.

change Hornqvist to Blum

To Ottawa:
Savard

To Boston:
Blum+Ottawa 3rd

To Nashville:
Fisher+Shannon


This is of course contingent on Fisher waiving his ****** NTC and Savard passing a physical

I believe Murray said although he had some interests in Savard, he didn't have the cap space to make it work. That's because the soft trade scenario put forth by Boston was intended to give them cap space so what they really wanted in return was draft picks/prospects. Ottawa couldn't take on 4M without sending the same the other way. So BOS - OTT alone did not make good trading partners.

All Sens' fans love Mike Fisher but most of us agree that his 4.2M cap hit is too high when you factor in his offense production. I wasn't willing to trade Spezza for Savard but for Mike Fisher? Most definitely! Gritty players are easier to replace than offensive gifted ones. I do think he would wave his NMC if it was in Carrie's best interest.

Yes please! Would Boston and Nashville would do this too?

We upgrade in centre, and save $1mill off the cap.

1) Nashville currently has for center.

Lombardi, Wilson, Legwand, Smithson, Goc, O'Reilly, Lundmark.

We do not need another center.

Fisher is arguably better than any center here

hey I agree that this isnt a very workable trade (mainly for Nashville) but I was just trying to work around the premise that the OP set out. If this were to really work (it never would) the deal would need to be something like this:

To Dallas:
Legwand
Dumont
Shannon
Ottawa 3rd


To Nashville:
Richards
Fisher

To Ottawa:
Savard

To Boston:
Blum
Ward


Like this issue is basically impossible to work through (as seen in this **** storm of a post) although its a very good idea
