Which completely flies in the face of what Murray said the plan was for Lehner. He was very blunt about it, they want him in the AHL ASAP, and want him to stay there.

Me thinks this is Melnyk wanting to save money.....wish he would pass that on to the STHs who paid to watch NHL hockey. Dont get me wrong, I like that we are changing, but Im getting a little sick about hearing how Melnyk is cutting all costs he can when I spend about 250% of my leisure money on Sens season tickets.

Yeah I bet they'd be all over it.

Montoya's probably a better goalie at this point, and he is owed probably 1/10th of what Leclaire is set to make the rest of the season.

We probably don't re-sign him but maybe we get one Youtube moment out of him in the shootout before the season is over. At least we could send Locke back down.

Actually not a bad move. Assuming there is any sort of interest out there for Lecalire from a playoff team (let's not forget he was pretty good when healthy this year) they have to make a claim for him now and cannot wait for recall waivers since he would be claimed after the trade deadline, making him ineligible for the playoffs. Might be a slim chance a team out there takes the bait and save the Sens $1M or so. If a non playoff team is interested in him for whatever reason, then they can wait for the recall waiver. If nobody is interested, then he plays in the minors for the rest of the year or he can back-up Anderson and send Lehner down. Nothing to lose that isn't already lost.

The thing about Lehner in the AHL is that Brust is the clear number one there, I think Lehner would probably get more games up here in Ottawa than he would with Bingo, a team that is making a strong push for the top seed in the playoffs.

Yep thats what I'm thinking too but Murray doesn't seem to make many moves like that
He has decent point totals this year, I'm sure he could produce, but I think with Svatos he just becomes redundant. Even though he's better than Svatos by a decent amount.

Murray should do the same with Kuba put him on waive than send his ass to Binghamton. Please Murray do it, do it please.

I can see that, and it could be my attitude next season if I am not enjoyingh watching the games as much. HOWEVER I'd rather see a Lehner start than a Leclaire Start. We might win if Lehner starts the game. Lehner is better than Leclaire right now in my opinion even if Leclaire is healthy. So it is a sound hockey decision beyond the dollars and cents of it.

This. They should consider sending Kuba down as well & then recall the two of them to see if someone would grab them on re-entry at half the price. At this point they should be trying whatever they can to get rid of them. BTW can you still place guys on waivers after the deadline & recall them & can other teams still take them off waivers after the deadline or does the deadline pretty much determine a team's roster going forward? If they can still place guys on waivers I would wait until after the deadline of course.

Wow... I'm actually completely surprised by this considering the other day they were assigning him for a conditioning stint.
Putting him in Bingo doesn't save Eugene any money, and I don't think cap space is an issue anymore either. I can't see anyone else claiming him at this point - so unless they're hoping he gets healthy, plays well a few games in Bingo and then can get claimed on re-entry... but at that point usually you can get 7th rounder for the guy (as we've seen a few people pass through re-entry and then get traded for 6th/7ths plus scrubs).

I could see a team like Philly could get desperate and pick him up, he was fantastic last playoffs. How much of a cap hit will he have on a team.

A) He's inconsistent when healthy.
B) HE'S NEVER HEALTHY.

The guy played maybe 15 good periods in a span of two years, and that's all some people want to remember.

And so it ends

Who honestly didn't see this coming as soon as he got traded to Ottawa? Thank god for Lehner, he's the only thing preventing me from calling Murray a complete idiot for trading away Vermette for Leclaire!

To be honest, it's not that Leclaire is a bad goalie.
It's that he'll come off IR, just start to find his game, and then another injury hits/falls/flicks/taps him.

Not too fast nothing is done yet. Lots of teams are throwing excess baggage on the waiver to see if there are any takers.

If someone picks him up then great. If not it doesn't mean he won't be brought back for the rest of the year. What if L'éclaire has a NMC that would prevent them from leaving him in the AHL. Lets see how the dust settles.
