Chabot underwhelms

2015 first round draft pick (18 overall) Thomas Chabot seems to have assistant general manager Randy Lee disappointed with what he had at the Senators Development camp.

“I thought Thomas should have been a bit more intense, I thought Thomas should have dominated”

“I think Thomas should look at the landscape and see we’ve got six signed defencemen (to NHL contracts) … Thomas and I have talked about it.”

Curious case of Mike Hoffman

Don Brennan, of the Ottawa Sun, wrote a good article about Senators forward Mike Hoffman. The lightning-rod restricted free agent still need to show what hes got (as crazy as that sounds.)

Before they give him $25 million over five seasons, or $20 million over four, or whatever the ask is, they want to make sure Hoffman is more than just a first three-quarters of the season wonder.

Hoffman has also decided to file for Salary Arbitration. Salary arbitration hearings will be held in Toronto from July 20 to Aug. 4.

Chiasson on the move? – Updated

Besides getting deals for Mike Hoffman and Cody Ceci done this summer, the Ottawa Senators also needed to decide what to do with defenseman Patrick Wiercioch (good as gone?) and forward Alex Chiasson.

Renaud Lavoie of TVA tweeted out this earlier today:

Drafted in the second round (38 overall) of the 2009 NHL entry draft by the Dallas Stars, Chiasson -with Alex Guptill, Nicholas Paul, and a 2015 second round pick (Gabriel Gagne) for star forward Jason Spezza, and Ludwig Karlsson.

At 6’3” and 202 pounds, the right handed shooting winger has played 153 NHL games with the Senators. He’s scored 19 goals and has had 21 helpers over that period of time – hardly becoming the player they had hoped he would turn out to be…well for any significant amount of time.

Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel has reported that the Florida Panthers are currently seeking a 3rd line winger.

Chiasson certainly has the build the Panthers have been adding to their team, he’s also a winger, could something be done here?

UPDATE

5:45pm

The Ottawa Senators have traded Alex Chiasson to the Calgary Flames for defenseman Pat Sieloff.
