  • Hoffman signed for 1yr $2M

    Pretty good deal for the Sens. It gives them an extra year to see if Hoffman is the real deal.

    The Sens have been getting away with some seriously good deals this offseason. That's a great award from our perspective.

      I think the sens had this day in mind from the start of when Hoffmans offensive play started to get better. They Knew if they put him on the power play he could of easily had 30-35 goals and would most likely get a hefty raise. You can only award based on the numbers you have and not what you would've gotten if given better ice time. Chiasson to a lesser extent but could of produced more if given a larger role. Murray had a plan and it worked perfectly for the organization.

        That's a really good point. If the Sens did indeed change his usage in order to get a cheaper deal, do you think it will cause some bad blood between him and the organization?

          We had to win pretty much all of our last 30 games to make the playoffs, and we had a bottom 10 PP in the league. While I think it's certainly an approach teams would take with players (perhaps even the Sens have), I'm not sure they'd risk it all just to lower his contract.

            It sure would seem counterproductive, but with the budget issues, who knows?

              Just like how the organization kept Spezza with crappy linemates helped with the justification of moving him in the end. Keeping Hoffman off the PP was a way to keep the expectaions down for a rookie who on most other teams would have been overpaid. It seems like Murray wants the core of this team moving forward at the same pace be it production wise, expectation wise, and contract wise. The whole playoff push just happened. Not having Hoffamn on the PP worked but if we didn't make it I doubt there would have been much out cry about it.

              Lehner was probably on thin ice before the injury. I think his concussion issues were over before the season ended but the Murray chose to shut him down, again, staying with what was working.
