Brown is a hard working guy and in the right scenario could be a good #3 RW but it's just a numbers game when a team comes up with Nylander, Marner and Kapanen in short order.

O'Neil: "I don't think Zaitsev can do anything great"

How can anyone argue that he can't sign a contract "great"?

I like the trade but sad to see CB go. Time to start thinking up a new moniker.
Can't be cheering for Connor Brown no more.

I was hoping Brown would get a shot with Tavares in Hyman's absence. I feel bad for him because of how much he wanted to play for the Leafs, but cap space is cap space.

Well enjoy Hyman while you can. He will be a casualty eventually too.

A project for the dev team, I.e. Ottawa sucks.

Yup. I think Ceci will be given a chance to play with a good partner.

Small wonder Melnyk has a bit of a complex about Toronto.

Can we sign Ceci to a 1yr 4.5 with a 3M signing bonus, and then move him back to Ottawa? Or Anaheim for a pick/prospect?

The fact that the contract hasn't been officially announced yet intrigues me.

From ESPN's winners and losers:

Quote
Pierre Dorion
Look, we don't want to pile on the beleaguered general manager of the Ottawa Senators. We even made Pierre Dorion one of the big winners at the trade deadline! But his acquisition of defenseman Nikita Zaitsev from the Toronto Maple Leafs goes down as one of the most stupefying in recent memory. Zaitsev is an underwhelming player with a contract that's valued at $4.5 million against the cap through 2024. For the honor of taking on this toxic contract, the Senators gave the Maple Leafs a third-round pick. That's not how this works. That's not how any of this works. -- Wyshynski

Spoiler: This wasn't in the Winners section.

I genuinely don't understand anyone disliking this deal from the Leafs POV.

Maybe he hasn't officially accepted the QO until he talks to the Leafs?
