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

Oh, Goober, u eat crow yet AGAIN! 'Mccabe bonehead school of defence', huh? that scool got Corvo an assist and a raod win with Canes last night, Comodore was a -2 in a 5-1 loss. not slamming Comodore, but sens need a powerplay guy to replase corvo (rob blake? or mcabe --- put him on good taem and watch him shine

Sens fans envy Leaf Nation?

Yup, we really wish the Sens were more like the Leafs. Yup, it sucks to have the most exciting line in hockey. yup, it sucks to make the playoffs year after year.

Dangit, why can't the Sens be more like the Leafs?

Ya see Einstein, we don't envy Leaf Nation.....we loathe Leaf Nation.

What is it with you pitiful Sens fans? Do you have so much envy for the Leafs Nation's status that you feel you must bash the Leafs at every turn? The question was whether or not the Sens would be better after the trade, not what snide comments can you throw in about the Leafs. Well the rest of the Sens sure looked like crap against the Sabres last night!!!!!!!!!!! HA HA HA!!!

Great trade for both sides. Stillman and Commodore will add some grit, scoring(from Stillman) and most importantly, Stanley Cup wins and Ottawa needs some guys who have been to the promised land.

It seems like a good trade but they will need better goal tending from the players available. They are a better team now and it would be nice to see the cup back here where it belongs in CANADA.

Last comment to all those Sens fans who have to mouth off. It doesn't matter how long ago another team won the cup you have never done it yet and second don't count worth squat. Playoff hockey is where it all counts the rest of the year is irrelevant. Having said that go Sens go you look like the best Canadian hope once again.

Nobody knows if they are better until the playoofs are done and if they finish worse than last year is that because the Pens are better, or the Flyers, or whoever, or does it mean that as seems to be the casre that pick-ups at the deadline are not usually good idea!

Stillman has all of 8 points in 2008 and Red is Red...this could either be really good for the Sens of a clear mistep toward the future! Nobody knows!

I love the addition. Sens have moved in the right direction while the pitiful leafs move in the opposite direction.

Jimbo you suck! like your team.
unclerickie, 2008-02-12 14:07:44

Yup. Good trade. Although, Patrick Eaves has a lot of upside. Corvo, while a likeable guy, obviously went to the "Bryan McCabe Bonehead School of Defence".

I agree with George that McGrattan, given the chance could develop into a "power forward". I also believe that young Cody Bass, when healthy, will provide some more hairy-assed aggressiveness.

Ahh poor Jimbo. Still living in the past. Leaf Nation seems to have a little envy problem with the Senators success. Get used to it Jimbo.......you will have many more headaches & sleepless nights to look forward to.


Goober, 2008-02-12 12:59:28

To answer the question, perhaps. Commodore is a better defencive defenceman than Corvo, but if you are forced to ride public transit with a bunch of Sens fans, you'd think that this trade has made every other team in the NHL perrenial golfers. Break out the parade route and plan on every June for the next 10 years....a dynasty has just been created!!!!!
Blue in the Valley, 2008-02-12 11:34:14

yea they are better but not with the goaltending.. they need to do something there or they are done like dinner.....
