hmmm ... I just read the leafs are sending the sens a 1st rnd pick.  That does not make me happy.  i hope that turns out to be wrong.

Read where? There’s no way. I can’t believe that. Well, I don’t want to believe that!

"Deal is expected to be announced soon. It's Zaitsev, Brown and Carconne for Ceci, Harpur, Luchuk and a pick. #Sens"

Leafs come out ahead easily and the only player I’d semi miss is Carcone, but he’s an AAAA winger on our team at best.

Dubas squeezes a pick out of the dumping process.

So Ottawa has Columbus' 2nd and 3rd round pick in 2020 so I guess it's one of those two.

what do we know about Harpur? Seems like a big guy how physical is he?  Any chance of staying up?

The pick might be a 2nd or 3rd.  Ottawa has a 2nd and 3rd from Columbus.

I'm not hating this deal, yet. Depends on what happens with Ceci.

His possession numbers aren't very good and he's a left side guy so he's probably a long shot to get any real time here.

A quick glance at Harpur's numbers reveal that he's bad... very bad. Might just be the Ottawa effect but I doubt it. The trade as a whole seems fine: we had to get out of Zaitsev's contract and we didn't take any contracts with term back. If the Leafs can flip both Harpur and Ceci for positive assets it comes out as a pretty big win.

If they flip Ceci I would call it a big win too. If they sign him for 4.3 million for one year, then I guess it was the best they could do under the circumstances, not terrible. My fear is they sign him to a multi-year deal at 4+ million a year.

This is like the Phaneuf trade. Ottawa’s motivations are so obviously exploitable.

Ok, but one of the most obvious things that we have discussed is that A) Ceci is possibly a downgrade on Z and 2) He won't save us any $ and 3) We need cap space. Why would he sign Ceci to term? This seems like such an obvious outcome that he won't since we need the cap space pretty badly right now.
