How the hell is the General Manager of the Ottawa Senators, Bryan Murray, still have a job? If he re-signs even one of Chris Neil and Filip Kuba, I will officially hate him. He's really fucking ruining our club and thinks of his own job right now, not the future of this team. Steve Yzerman, anyone?
With the Trade deadline less than 24 hours away, you think it would be smart for Murray and Clouston to take out Kuba from the game, as it would destroy any chance of him getting injured, which if it happened, would me a momentual failure. No team would trade picks and prospects for a 33-year old, pending UFA and have him injured. And with his injury history, you've gotta watch out. But instead, alas, Muray makes another dumb choice.
About the goalie rumor here in the Nation's Capital, the Sens are pursuing LeClaire and Clemmensen now that Backstrom is off the market. Those rumors have colled down a bit amnd accoridng to a source, "The Sens will likely get their No.1 goalie in the offseason or stick with Elliott and Auld". We shall see Sens fans, we shall see(the light?!).
So here are now my final Trade Deadline Predictions:
Filip Kuba traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets for a 2nd round pick and Marc Methot
Chris Neil traded to the Boston Bruins for a 3rd round pick
Christoph Schubert is put on waivers to no avail
Brendan Bell picked on waivers up by the Carolina Hurricanes
Martin Gerber traded to the Calgary Flames for a 5th round pick
Hoping...Antoine Vermette and Kirill Lyamin traded to the New Jersey Devils for Scott Clemmensen and a 5th round pick
Thnaks For Reading and Enjoy The Game and the Follow-Up to Tomorrow!!!
