Total Rumours, But This Ottawa Senators Fan Likes Them!

Pete BarrContributor INovember 15, 2008

I normally don't write about rumours, but these two I had to share. They are not from a substantiated source, but I got pretty excited at the chance they were for real.

Trade No. 1

To Ottawa, from Florida: Jay Bouwmeester and Nathan Horton

To Florida, from Ottawa: Mike Fisher, Antoine Vermette, and a 2009 first-round pick

Trade No. 2

To Ottawa, from Atlanta: Ilya Kovalchuk, Matthieu Schneider, and 2009 first-round pick

To Atlanta, from Ottawa: Jason Spezza, Brian Lee

At first glance, I thought the Thrashers and Panthers were crazy, but consider that Bouwmeester and Kovalchuk are both UFA's at the end of the season. I love these moves as an Ottawa fan, as long as at least one of the new additions signs in Ottawa.

What do you think?
