The Atlantic Division gets that much tougher.  Ottawa should compete for a playoff spot next season.

It’s crazy how a goalie’s stock can rise and fall,
depending on how many are available and how
hot each one has been recently. GMs know many
goalies have sudden peaks, dips, sometimes change teams
or tweak their games and get back to the top.
But it’s just as likely a 2-3 year peak is all you see, then mediocrity.
It’ll be really interesting to see what Murray can do behind a very young
- like extremely young - defense.

Wow.  It’s just so interesting how things can change. 

Hey Panthers - FYI, this is a good reminder of why you don’t give goalies 15 years and $129 billion dollars.
