Just when I heard a few experts say Pittsburgh was out of the sweepstakes... Scary team. Would make for a nice second round match up!
Wow, Pittsburgh are banking the future on a cup won this year
Broken all down, in order to get
Jarome IginlaDouglas Murray Brenden Morrow 3rd-Round Pick (2013) (Dallas)

The three players they acquired are all UFAs at the end of the year and Pittsburgh have 16 players signed next year at $53.7M and have $10.6M left in cap space.
Note to self: cancel appointment with Aaron Ward's stock broker.
I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I still wouldn't make that dumbass trade. #JayFleecedster

is Rutherford insane Russell?
in about a year, the owner of the Canes will be down in Rutherford's office, kneeling over him and slapping him like a girl #semincontract
I don't think it'll take a year for that to happen.
Maybe Rutherford will have Semin on hand to defend him, bongo drum style.
It just occurred to be that Shero on the Bruins may be the ultimate chimp on frog.
..........did anyone see Jagr just went to the Bruins?
Don't do it Jaromir! It's a trap!
Diving Derek Roy goes to the Canucks (who have a great diving team).
And now Clowe is gone to NYR in exchange for 3 picks, none of which are a 1st rounder (and one is dependent on him re-signing with NYR or NYR winning two playoff series).
Breaking news---the Senators are listening to offers on Ben Bishop!!!!!!!!
More breaking news later............
So how has TSN been able to keep up with all the trade activity so far?
lots of speculation about Bishop. If I'm Murray, i don't trade him for less than a 1st and a player/prospect. seems high but considering we got him for a second when he was an AHL'er, now he pretty much looks like a quality NHL starter, his value is waaayyyyy up. if i couldn't get that, I'd just keep him.
Am of the same opinion, Russ, but I'm getting called a "homer" for it by other Sens fans who think it's unrealistic (no offence to the real Homer :)Buy low, sell high. But for most Sens fans they want to buy low and sell realistically.
Plenty of teams out there that need stable goaltending...
...And how crazy is it that here we are talking about trading AWAY solid goaltending?!?! Hats off to Murray.
No offense taken.
I say no trade unless it's a really good deal. If the best offer is a 2nd rounder, then keep him and make a trade this summer as we can probably get a 2nd rounder at that time anyway. He'd be more valuable to us for the run to the playoffs than trading him for the sake of making a trade. I'd rather get a player in return as we have lot's of prospects. There could be a 3-way deal where one team gets Bishop, the other prospect/pick and we get a roster player that can help us right away and maybe a draft pick..
Bishop to Tampa. I called that last week!
Is Andy good to go?
It better be for Lecavalier or St-Louis or both...
you didn't let me finish... :P
F Cory Conacher 4th-Round Pick (2013)
9G 15A 24PTS in 35 Games this season23 years old, $925,000 this and next year, then RFA
I guess we can now officially welcome Lehner to the NHL?
they did a great feature on one of the networks when he was red hot earlier this year-- so there's that going for us
I hate it!!! Bishop is a hell of a goalie. I would have kept him and traded Anderson over the summer. Anderson would get us a lot more in return because Bishop is still unproven. But I think the Sens would have been just fine with both Bishop and Lehner next year.
Now we're going into the playoffs with an injured goalie and 2 young goalies with no playoff experience.
Mark my words, we will regret this trade once we see what Bishop will do with Tampa over the next couple of years.
