He sure likes to bash the Sens...
Almost more than talk about the team he's supposed to cover!

The point is to move the team to Quebec.

I’ve said this before, but it’s like the movie Major League. The owner has been vocal about wanting to move the team out of Ottawa (followed by insincere back-pedaling) and it just seems like he’s looking to make these guys as bad as possible.

It’s one thing to enter a full rebuild, but it’s another to continually make terrible moves. Moving Karlsson isn’t a bad decision. The move he made for him was terrible.

I guess we wouldn't have a chance to trade for Karlsson even if we traded Schultz and Rust in the package...Ottawa is a mess.

Nope, that would have been too much. Apparently we would have only had to give them Rust, Adam Johnson, Trotman, Bellrive, a 1st and 2nd.

Anyone excited to see Matt Cullen and Jack Johnson play their 1st game for us? I sure am.😄

Ryan and some of us other writers on this site were friends with Travis Yost during his time on HB. That's one of the reasons.

This is a crazy situation and not wrong to examine it.

No doubt the situation was misread heading into the Duchene trade. Not that they couldn't compete for a championship. They just weren't ready to consistently compete. Bad decisions made left and right and the result is chaos. A bad owner pulls the strings of his GM and there you are.

Just a reminder that it doesn't matter how good the individual players or coaching is if the management and ownership isn't at least solid. Need top to bottom sensibility in an organization.

This reminds me of the Kovalchuk trade or even the Hossa trade. EK could have landed a 1st top prospect + at the deadline. Instead they will get a later 1st and some dudes. Duchess and Stone will be gone soon as well.

The Pittsburgh Pirates make the Sens look like a model franchise.

Gotta love when a blogger/fan of another team looks down on organizations. I mean, you are fortunate enough to be a fan of a good team, through no effort of your own. Unless you’re a bandwagon jumper ( Blackhawk fans) the lowest form of life in the sports world.
