Josh Clipperton:

Kyle Turris speaking in Vancouver on the end of his time in Ottawa:
“It’s tough because I think management did want to sign me,
but I think that the owner didn’t. And that was his decision.”
Turris was their lil engine that could, after they lost him and brought in Duchene they haven't been the same.

Now Karlsson might have to be dealt thanks to thin pockets in Sens land.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Go back to the middle of May and who would have thought this franchise could be in such a whole lot of hurt
this quick.

Given the new look 'round these parts, I figured it was time for a change.

Man that would not go over well for the fickle fan base in Vancouver, but it kind of reminds me of the Shanahan for Pronger deal.

Boeser ain't Shanny and Dahlin ain't Pronger obviously, but if Dahlin is the next Karlsson this team would be foolish to not accept, the team could use a top-tier scoring dman, as Hutton, Stecher, MDZ & Pouliot ain't getting it done scoring wise & Juolevi projects to be a smart, two-way, big minute dman but won't score a ton.

Still I hella prefer this team get more picks and prospects from now till trade deadline, yes even with Baertschi and Sutter nearing return which should help a bit, it's not enough to make the playoffs. So I hope management is ready to continue the rebuild.

Team you'd think is due for some timely luck at the lotto *crosses fingers*

Bennett - Ritchie - Stalwart

Bennett at 4th pick overall and Dal Colle at 5th pick overall is one thing but WTF is with the 2nd overall pick - Reinhart? Another typical Canadian bust

Maybe you would like to legitimize your list by providing ice time or teams that are severely underachieving due to injuries or poor play etc. It’s a team sport , not that cycling would provide any sort of perspective for a guy . For instance considering Anaheim has missed Kesler and Getzkaf for a combined 60 odd games just might have an effect on some of their wingers production or the fact that Bennett has played in the bottom six all year.

Yeah no Bubbles, they need to own it instead of passing the blame. Stalwart - Bennett 4th overall pick, Reinhart - 2nd overall pick, Ritchie - 10th overall pick - Bubbles favourites

Yes I can see why you wouldn’t want to include any more details in your scatterbrained scatter gunned post. It’s lije when you go home with the grocery bill and show the wife the price that’s coming out of the account but neglect to tell her you pissed half the amount away on booze and drugs
