 From TSN.ca "The Senators traded Dion Phaneuf and Nate Thompson to the Kings on Tuesday in exchange for oft-injured Marian Gaborik and Nick Shore"

 

My guess is that they got Gaborik so Ryan has someone to talk to when he's injured. 


HA! 


So between the two of them we have a top-6 winger.

Ryan - bad hands

Gaborik- bad knee/groin

 

Where’s Viktor Frankenstein when you need him?


 The Sens should just put Gaborik on the injury list for the rest of the year. During the summer they can try and trade him, buy him out, see if he retires. If they can't get rid of him, at least he should be healthy enough to possibly contribute next year. Play Shore on the 4th line for the rest of the year and see if he's worth keeping around.

More from guys who follow Kings:

"Kings got the better end of this deal. You get a second pair D, open a spot at center where the team is the deepest, and get rid of a player who isn't good enough anymore (Gaborik) to play top six minutes and one (Shore) who doesn't fit what you want in your bottom six."

Ringing endorsements for the guys joining the Sens for sure, Second pair D is a stretch IMO

 Yeah, they may want to re-evaluate that 2nd pairing thing in a few weeks.

Now Dion plays again for a team that is one of my favorite teams biggest rival, I go back to hating Dion all over again. Leafs and now Kings sheesh.


 I never really stopped disliking his play. I liked his nastiness, but that’s about it.

Plus Dion gone means no more NMC for the upcoming Seattle expansion draft. Key with Karlsson, Chabot, and Ceci/trade target/Jaros.

Phaneuf will play against the Penguins as a member of the Kings on Thursday. "My equipment is staying here and I am too," he told reporters #Senators

I think this is pretty funny for some reason.

So Phaneuf didn't want to leave so we ended losing Methot. Now they are both gone and we still have 25% of Phaneufs salary. I'm going back to curling.


 pretty much, yep.

but you can still blame melnyk for insisting we keep ceci and wideman over methot. all about the $$$$.


 Ceci was protected, not Wideman.  And yes you protect Ceci over Methot 10 times out of 10.


Probably means Ceci will be traded, but I think especially now with Dion gone Ceci is in Ottawa's long range plans.

 I still blame Phaneuf for not waiving his no trade clause. I don't think Vegas would have touched him.


 that was a certainty, Dion didn't waive because he didn't want to be embarrassed that not even an expansion team would touch him.  It was a pride thing I'd bet.

"Gaborik gave them more from the stands than on ice. Addition by subtraction."

This from a LA guy who covers the Kings about Marion, he's certainly a buyout candidate

 

But, he'll certainly fit in to this years team with that ringing endorsement.  Maybe he can drive a tank??
