Hotstove tonight summary

Senators

Kevin weekes: Spoke to Melnyk and Murray and said the Karlsson injury has significant impact. They are open to and will investigate a trade. In terms of business it impacts them big as there feature attraction is not playing.

Friedman: Team will not make a short term deal for the sake of making a short term deal

Stock: Gotta trade Alfie as they should be building for next year. They gottamove him

Healy: Wait until closer to trade deadline to move him

O Reilly

Freidman: Avalanche and Rangers went down this week on what a deal would work. Basically the offer was dman and oreilley for Del Zotto plus. Avs wanted more. They are targeting certain teams

.

Healy: Price is too high. As a result, teams are thinking of an offer sheet and structuring it in a way where Avs will not match.

Stock: Not sure where the value for him comes from. Last year he had 55 points 2 yrs before under 30 and not even a ppg guy in juniors.4

Olympics

Healy: IOC and IIHF have said they are willing to give media access to NHL/etc but problem is rights holders such as CBC paid huge for these rights. Also stated PA has major concerns with the hotel for players which would be really close to the Georgian border (safety issues)

Injuries

Weekes: Believes league needs to make it mandatory for players to protect themselves from certain injuries

Healy: Over 200 million a day right now is being lost by injured players. Start doing what Rangers do. Put a pad on glove to block shots/etc.

Stock: Why not wear the socks that are going to protect against laceration?

The O'Reilly talk is what I found most interesting. Del Zotto by himself should be enough to get that deal done, I can't believe the Avs would be asking for more. He's put up 55 points ONCE, he's not worth the rumoured 4 mil + or the potential 2 roster players + prospect to acquire him.

Stock wears diapers

Healy is a red Charlie Sheen

Weekes is useless (like his hockey play)

Worst panel

I do enjoy Friedman's and LeBrun's insights.

Even though their season is ruined I think it's good Ottawa don't make some panic trades. They need to think long term. I could see them possibly looking to trade for O'Reilly depending on what they would have to give up. I'm not sure about him being a #1 center but him as their #2 behind Spezza could work pretty well.

The injuries segment was incomplete. Are there more or less injuries this season? there are lots of injuries every year that's just part of playing in the NHL. I think eventually the hockey socks that are part of the uniform will be made with kevlar.

With his goalie demonstrations yea, it's close - but not as bad as when Strachan was still there.

O'Reilly does a lot more than get points, though.

He does faceoffs, plays responsible defence (anad against better opponents than Duchene) and is a good leader.

He was going to be the captain.

O'Reilly is definitely worth the price he is asking for. If the Jets had an opportunity to acquire him, I'd be absolutely pumped. We are incredibly weak at centre.
