Matt Duchene, obtained from the Colorado Avalanche in a block agreement in November 2017, has been traded by the Ottawa Parliamentaries.
Its destination – across the hall.
The Senators sent center number 1 to the Columbus Columbus Jackets – who they are playing on Friday night in Canada Tire Center – for a yet confirmed package.
It is believed that the Senators also go back at least one first round option (together with a conditional process first) and also share the Swedish defender game Julius Bergman, a piece that I got back in the trade field Mike Hoffman, who has be a healthy scratch in Belleville.
Abramov was a third round (65 in general) of Columbus in 2016. The old Olympics Gatineau is only 5ft 9 and 171 pounds. Now 20, she has 12 goals and 10 assistants in 52 games to the Cleveland Hockey League Cleveland Cushions.
Davidson, 5ft 11, 185 pounder, was the sixth round of Blue Jackets (170 in general) in the 2017 entry draft.
He is currently in the Swedish Hockey League, where he has 10 goals and 10 assistants in 35 games for Djurgardens IF.
For those who do not like what Senators have back to Duchene, does it make it easier to look at it as the return to Kyle Turris, Andrew Hammond, Shane Bowers's first round collection, together with choosing a first round (possibly in general) choosing a third round in 2019?
Of course, the Senators gave that package to Duchene on 5 November, 2017, thinking that he would help to become a last season competitor.
That was not the case. With Duchene in the round over the last 15 months, the Senators had a boring record 39-69-10.
Duchenne's contributions to the effort were not trivial. Over the span of 118 games, he had 107 points with 50 goals and 57 assistants.
Duchene's losing leaves a breathtaking hole in the center of the center, where the only NHL is truly experienced at Jean-Gabriel Pageua, Chris Tierney and Zack Smith.
The Senators will hope that the center, Colin White, with 13 goals and 32 points in the 53 first games of the war season will continue.
But the bottom line is, after giving them the best to get Duchene, they needed to re-sign. Where the debates broke down, no one will confirm.
But Duchene did not have the chance to say how much he liked to be living in Ottawa – driving three hours away from his own home, Haliburton – and how great he enjoyed his Senate team friends.
And even last season, when the team finished the second final in the general situations – while refusing to use the word "rebuilding" – he spoke how confident he was in the team's direction. Duchene wanted to be part of the future.
He also said that money would be a factor in his next step.
If he had lost faith in the manager or in fact he did not like the financial terms of the motion to be unclear at the moment. All it is certainly known is that the Senators have only traded one of the best abusive centers that the franchise has ever had.
More to come.
