Over-Stocked & Ready To Deal?
Just had an interesting conversation with a contact in the league, western based NHL team, NOT the team involved in the rumour!
Seems the Sens are being targeted as being “over-stocked” in defensive prospect talent, but lacking in offensive prospect talent.
Wow, what a news flash captain obvious.
But that’s not where it stopped.
It seems there is a lot of discussion going on between Ottawa and a western team deep in offensive prospect talent, and light in defensive talent, both at the ready and prospect level.
Apparently this team is willing to make a move, and Murray is game, bt it’s coming down to, you guessed it, money.
The Sens are tight to the cap, and can’t take on extra salary without a BIG pay off.
Then, in the middle of the discussion, Hale goes on waivers, clearing some space.
A smoke signal? Dunno.
Here’s exactly what was said.
“Edmonton wants help on their blueline, now, and can’t get anything done with Souray. The think is that Souray will be made available on re-call, and if the Sens take him on, at half price, Edmonton gets Kuba and a high end prospect D in exchange for a 2nd rnd pick and a top end offensive prospect.”
Interesting. BUT, just a RUMOUR!
