Gotta Be Landeskog
Quick pick: I'm guessing Nick Foligno is the guy the Senators will be dangling to the Florida Panthers (along with their 6th overall pick) to move up and grab Gabriel Landeskog 3rd overall at the draft (as I mentioned in a previous post). You could probably throw in a prospect like Patrick Wiercioch as well.
To me, Landeskog is worth making a big move for. The guy is a future captain, and he wants to play here. Not getting him will be a disappointment, although there are some pretty good consolation prizes in Jonathan Huberdeau and Ryan Strome.
While I'm making half-assed predictions, I'll take the easy money and go with Paul Maclean as the next coach of the Senators. The connections run too deep and anytime you can add a quality individual from the Red Wings, the best run organization in the league for years, you take the opportunity.
Now, back to my cave....
