Are the Sens better with Stillman and Commodore?
Mon, February 11, 2008

The Ottawa Senators have shaken things up.

Ottawa acquired forward Cory Stillman and defenceman Mike Commodore from the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday for forward Patrick Eaves and defenceman Joe Corvo.

The Senators lead the Eastern Conference and have made very few changes from the team that lost to Anaheim in last year's Stanley Cup.

Does this deal address problems in the Senators lineup? Are the Sens a better team following the four-player trade? Have your say in our forum.

Sens pull off a big deal

This is getting very lame. Listening to all of these pundits discuss how the "no-movement clauses" in the contracts of certain Leafs is hampering Cliff Fletcher.

Gimme a break. Nobody wants Tucker at $3 million. Nobody wants McCabe at +5 million. You couldn't trade these slugs even if they would go.

Why Trade Kaberle? He is a good player who is a bargain. Keep Sundin. Because he's got a couple of good years left and he has some class. Something this organization is lacking.

They'll finish last for a few years and will get some top picks and can build from there.

Goober...you so smart.

You are very much like Leafs management Pete - you simply do not get it. I have never said no one else can have an "opinion" and when they do express one I certainly don't assume it should match mine. That is the basis for argument. Very few issues do not ultimately boil down to one opinion or another. And when it does, regardless of the way you or I feel, it does not make one of us absolutely right - or absolutely wrong either. Just different.

What you don't do is throw insults at the other in attempting to get your point across. I don't resort to that - unless someone else fires the first shot. Then, I believe, I can more than hold my own. I don't like taking that rout, but then again I won't back down either.

No George, your not asinine, your opinion is always correct and god forbid anyone else should have one.
Pete, 2008-02-22 07:06:56

'ignoramus' might be a little extreme.... 'uninformed' fits better. stick to the habs george, talking about other teams you don't follow is asking for criticizm.

OK everyone, It;s now official, I'm "asinine" and an "ignoramus." It must be so because Pete says it's so.

You just have to love those whose tactic to refute another's viewpoint is to throw insults at them - or SHOUT them down as they would if it were a bar room conversation. Last and loudest wins.

Pete, I will always cherish the initial misconceptions I had about you.
George O'Leary, 2008-02-21 14:54:43

Just to clarify, YES apparently there are 2 Pete's here.

George, I have read many of your muses over the past months. You normally seem like a knowledgable sports fan but please an enforcer is an enforcer. at 525k annually he is a bargain. The sens are paying six times that for Muckler who doesn't have a seat anywhere near the rink let alone the bench. Lets be honest here, to suggest McGratton is on the team of any reason other than enforcer is just ignorance. Further to suggest McGratton and Neil in the same sentence with regard to hockey skills is just plain assinine.
Pete, 2008-02-21 10:44:29

I won't argue strenuously on the point Pete - but then it seems kind of foolish to keep a roster spot tied up with McGrattan, not to mention the $525,000. Not a huge amount by any means, but then probably better spent as part of another contract coming up for renewal this summer.

Maybe after he does go elsewhere if they don't offer him a contract (he's a RFA) we'll find out if he can develop.
George O'Leary, 2008-02-20 16:51:58

George, all I can say to your Neil vs. McGrattan argument is that I see it quite differently than you do. I would suggest that Brian Murray, John Paddock, and the majority of the fans and media who watch the Sens game in and game out see it quite differently than you do as well. If McGrattan is secretly talented it is certainly news to the coaches who see him every day, otherwise he'd play more than the 1 - 3 shifts he gets on nights he's not a healthy scratch. Have you ever seen McGrattan with the puck? He cannot do anything with it, let alone score. His stats don't lie.

On the other hand, although Chris Neil does take his share of dumb penalties he works hard and has the ability to create legitimate offence. He can do much more than punch people and sit for long periods of time.
