Darcy Tucker in a Senators uniform? This was an actual possibility last season according to the Toronto Star (thanks to Battle Of Ontario for pointing this out).
While discussing the possibility of Tucker being bought out by the Toronto Maple Leafs, Mark Zwolinski suggested that Bryan Murray was asking about him before deciding to acquire Cory Stillman and Mike Commodore from the Hurricanes. That would have been a big contract to take on for Murray as Tucker has three full years left at $3 million per.
But does Murray revisit the idea if Tucker is bought out?
It makes you wonder what the hell is going on in Bytown. First it's the rumours about Pat Quinn coming to coach and now we have this.
How low will the organization stoop?
Low enough to accept past-their-prime castoffs from a Leaf organization that has stuck a knife in the Senators hearts year after year?
There is no doubt that these rumoured moves will play well with the meat-and-potatoes fans who are the same ones clamoring for all those "wussy" skill players to be shipped out of town (ie. Spezza, Meszaros, Redden, Emery and even Heatley).
But isn't there just something completely wrong with seeing either Quinn or Tucker part of a Senators team?
Is nothing sacred?
