Kelly is such a perfect 4th liner. I really think he'll make the team

Especially if the PK continues to struggle.

I also think Boedker is waived at the end of camp

Waived and not claimed and put back on Ottawa's roster.

Well, at least he won't get an 'A'.

That Swartz major hurt. Not just the 2 goals but it screwed up the lines. And he took another minute before that so 7 minutes of the first 12 were shorthanded. Out best PKers were not dressed (Pageau and Brown) and the ones who did play got tired out quickly.

And our PP went 0 for 5 without the top line.

I'd say if our top lineup was out there we would a different outcome.

Maybe Anaheim would be interested?

Makes that Hoffman trade even worse.

7 PK goals against in the last 2 games.

It looks bad if Dorion buries him after the Hoffman deal so yes I agree that it is the most likely outcome. But it wouldn't hurt to have him in the minors. But there is a small chance that someone like San Jose or Arizona pick him up.

He's not that bad, it's not like he's a horrible, lumbering, Lucic-style player. He's okay, but unfortunately that's absolutely all he is. When he first came over, I liked what I saw, then he regressed into a blah player.

Still, he'll be fine here. We've got a heck of a bad team, but with a lot of spirit. We'll be last in the league and we'll trade him for a 4th or something at the deadline and call it a day.

I still think he's more useful as a buyout and cap hit over two years

Not if we utilized the money on a FA that might help this team(note that I didn’t say star FA, no one amazing is coming here in a hurry).

I think we bring in players via trade. There is too much organizational depth to be signing mediocre FAs long-term. We're better off trading some players and acquiring someone more elite.

Chlapik, Lajoie, Paul, Tychonik, Gruden, Abramov, Davidsson, Veronneau, Rodewald, Carcone, Alsing probably don't have a future here. If we're looking at upgrading the RHD spot, I would add Jaros to that list too. Then we have Pageau, Anisimov, Tierney, Duclair, Ryan, Boedker, Ennis, Hainsey that could be added as well - some worth more than others. 2 1st rd picks, 3 2nds. If a good player with term is made available at the deadline, Ottawa should inquire. But until then, they should stay the course and hope for a top 5 pick.

The number of players with some sort of trade clause limiting who we can acquire via trade and only the bottom talent players willing to sign with Ottawa, the only way we can improve until Melnyk and Dorion are gone is through prospect development.

I don't think we need to do anything for at least a year, probably 2.

What an absolutely boneheaded hit from behind by Tierney on Boeser - who is hurt.

What are you doing?

Disagree. I think by locking up White and Chabot it sends a message to the rest of the league on where Ottawa is headed. I also don't think Dorion is a problem. I don't like him but he's not the reason why people won't sign here.

Plus we don't need to be bringing people in.
