Does anyone else think Ottawa won the Hoffman and Karlsson trades? I know it's early and things will 100% change but I've actually liked Boedker's game thus far. Despite him not scoring a goal yet, he's come close and he's able to play well in all three zones.
Karlsson has looked completely out of place in San Jose and I really can't picture him re-signing there. Meanwhile Tierney and De Melo have been good, Norris is still projected to be a good prospect, we have some picks, and Balcers also projects to be a good player.
Add a d-man or two to a young core of Lajoie, Chabot, Wolanin, get Stone and Duchene signed and scoring, and all of a sudden the Sens are looking pretty good.
