Time to move Anderson..
« on: February 14, 2013, 09:28:44 AM »
His value has never been higher than it is right now.   With Spezza gone for the year and Karlsson gone for the year we may as well get a good draft pick for Andy now and bring Lehner  up next season as the #1 going forward.   Bishop can shoulder the load for the rest of this season.
 
Thanks for curb stomping our season Cooke.   Ya lousy piece of $h!t  :icon_angry2:   :icon_banghead:   :paddle:   :crier:

Actually alot of people are saying this....
Sadly it makes sense... We DO have to trade Bishop (likely), but we wouldn't really get much for him.
If we re-sign Anderson then it'll be a harder sell to Lehner that he should also re-sign as Andersons backup.

Dont get me wrong, I love Anderson.   That being said he was always a "stop gap" while we wait for Lehner to be ready.   How many years can you keep Lehner in Binghamton?   Either you trade Anderson, or you trade Lehner (he may demand a trade if you leave him in Bingo any longer).
 
If you really believe Lehner is the future in net for the Sens then the time to move Anderson is right now, the season is shot...as well as he's playing he can't score for us too.

...or he may demand a trade if he realizes he is signing on to be an NHL backup.
He has already stated his unhappiness in Bingo to the media and how he feels he is ready and capable of being an NHL goalie...

With their two best players out Ottawa's goal tending is going to get shelled for the next while.  Leave Lehner in Bingo for now and let a veteran who won't get their confidence shattered by that shelling take the brunt of it. 


The time to move a goalie is at the deadline or at the draft.   I expect that will either be Bishop (if he is not going to sign his qualifying offer) or Anderson.  Either way I expect Lehner will be in Ottawa next year looking to prove that he deserves a one way deal for his next contract.


Wanting to make a knee jerk trade because of the Karlsson and Spezza injuries is not dealing from a position of strength.  No matter which goalie they try to deal, other GM's will not make top offers for these guys right now if they think Murray is make a deal out of desperation.


The Senators finally have solid goal tending and depth at the position, let's not mess up a good thing that Senators fans have waited so long to be able to say.
