Senators News: June 24th

-Here’s my look at the draft through the lens of prognostication as well as a look at Ottawa’s draft.  The Sens weren’t able to make any trades during the festivities, but many transactions occurred around the league with more to come.  It’s pretty clear GM’s and owners aren’t concerned about the upcoming CBA given the transactions and re-signings.

-I thought the best reaction to the Sens draft was from Scott when the Sens drafted Cody Ceci, “At the very least the Ottawa Sun will be psyched.”  That goes for most of the selections given the Ottawa media’s proclivities.

-Some trivia about new Sens draft pick Francois Brassard: his father Marc is the sports editor at Le Droit.

Allen Panzeri stated the obvious regarding the Rick Nash rumours: he does not want to come to Ottawa (something I mentioned back when the rumours started to circulate).  My feeling has been that Columbus GM Scott Howson is using Ottawa to try and jack up the price for Nash, which is going to be relatively low (as Lyle Richardson discusses) given that this is essentially a Dany Heatley situation where the player dictates where he is going.
