From a usually reliable message board source with deal breaking success in his past:

“Basically Melnyk gave the green light to PD to negotiate a deal just for Karlsson. They agreed with Tampa late yesterday on a deal that would send 2 NHLers plus two prospects (no picks) to Ottawa and info went out that the deal was done. Then Melnyk changed his mind and went back to wanting to attach Ryan, PD had to go back to Tampa and say no deal, Tampa got pissed and retracted their offer and playing hard ball now.”

What in the actual....bleh

 

He retracted it, but the Millard statement about moving goal posts leads me to believe that this deal is royally Melnyked.

 Tampa Bay has no cap space. Ryan will not be going to TB.


 Melnyked. That's a keeper.

I don't doubt it. They should try to move Ryan separately or buy out his contract. Trying to package EK with an overpaid injury-prone player like Ryan will make hammering out a deal too difficult. 

What will we get in return for Ryan anyway? Most likely some other team's bad contract that they're desperate to unload and we'll be back where we started.

Anybody laughing at the irony that the conspiracy theory is that the league rejected the trade ala Bettman nixing the Plekanec/Pacioretty, Price, Subban deal for Lecavalier because of the Barrie/Kroules ownership spat?

I just want it over with at this point. I don't even care any more. Just trade him so I can be done with wondering.

It's really hard to talk hockey. Everyone in Canada knows Sens are blowing up and it sucks. For me I felt the same when Spezza left but it's so much worse because no one is ever going to want to play here. My only hope is being at our lowest we can only go up from here right? It almost feels like a terrible break-up and trying to put a good face on it isn't working. Just please Erik, anywhere but Vegas.


That's another thing, if EK wants out of here and seems like every few years there are big problems in the dressing room what free agent will want to sign here?  Probably worse now as the problems all point to Melnyk. The only FA who'll sign here are players who couldn't find another team to sign with and don't want to go to Europe.

Haha the irony would be sending Methot and Spezza back. ...that would cheer me up a bit actually.

 Hey, cheer up. We might end up with Jezza back here again!
