Dorion: One Scenario we don't like... what is it?

A month or 2 ago, Dorion said there was one scenario they thought would be bad. What could it be?

IMO, there are 2 potential responses.

1) The Sens have 5 guys they really like, and 5-6 is a drop off they note in their rankings

2) They have 4 forwards they like, then some defense. Those 4 forwards are gone, leaving 1-2 BPA guys being defensemen.

Dorion did say that the scenario is unlikely to happen though.

Any other ideas?

RNH, Huberdeau, Landeskog, Larsson and Strome gone in top 5. That's the scenario they don't like.

Well, if the rumors are true about the Sens not being too keen on Couturier, I'm guessing that scenario is Nugent-Hopkins, Larsson, Landeskog, Huberdeau and Strome all go in the top five.

I'd be happy with either...not sure why Couturier gets such a bad rap. He'd be a steal at 6

I think Zibby is going to be a beast in a few years(he's my favourite prospect).....I just think this team has their sights set on:Huberdeau,Strome, and Landeskog.

This. If this happen I'd say they poll teams below them to see how far they can trade down to pick zibanejad.

That could very well happen.

Go with the BPA if that happens or trade down

Zibanejad could already be a better player then Landeskog right now for all we know.

I think I missed the Couturier sucks memo, I wouldn't be upset if he was there to pick at 6

Listening to the Team, it seems that they aren't too keen on his work ethic and attitude.

Most likely this. If this happens they probably take Zbad. We know they don't like Couturier and if they trade down they run the risk of missing out on Zbad later and settling for a defenseman like Murphy.

I don't see couturier as a bad thing at all. In fact I'll agree with Rooverick, that would be great. I'm thinking the scenario they didn't like was huberdeau or zibanejad left. Personally I'd be happy with any of those guys. I just beleive that Strome or Couturier are the guys the sens want to be at 6 (realistically, although you never know)

That's my guess too. The playoffs catapulted Huberdeau from 6-8 to consensus top-4, but it is quite possible that the Sens still have him 6-8.

No. Murray has already made it clear he would love to snatch up Larsson if he were ever to drop (which he won't).

Maybe, but is it a 'scenerio we don't like'?, do you really think we need another dman who may be ready to jump in & play this year? I know it's a scenario that I don't like.

Adding Larsson would allow the Senators to trade some of the their D prospects to team that really need some. It would be a long process, because ideally you'd deal those at next year's draft, but it's still a good scenario considering Larsson is going to be great according to everyone.

Lets speculate for a moment that Larsson falls to #6 and the Sens take him. Most are saying that the Sens can now trade from an area of Depth, but WHO do you trade? The big 4 that have the most value are:

Cowen, Rundblad, Karlsson and Larsson.

The other in the org aren't going to get you much in return so lets ignore them, so again, which of those 4 are you ready to give up on, considering we've only seen one of them play!

I don't get all the love for Zibanejad. Has anyone here even seen him play?? Probably not. I would much prefer Couts with #6. Zibby's still a few years away, and we need somebody NOW!

If Larsson were to miraculously fall to 6th it would be a great scenario. If we didn't want him we could just trade down for a big return.
