After the first domino fell when Matt Duchene got traded to Columbus, many expected the rest of dominos to fall come the Trade Deadline on Monday. However, that was not the case as general managers again proved they do not care about TV shows on Monday.

NHL Trade Alert: Senators Trade Ryan Dzingel

Once again the Ottawa Senators and Columbus Blue Jackets were trading partners. The Senators sent Ryan Dzingel to Columbus for Anthony Duclair along with two second round picks.

As part of the deal for Dzingel, the Senators sent a 7th round pick they got from Calgary. As far as the second round picks go, one is from the 2020 NHL Draft, and the other is from the 2021 Draft.

Clearly, the Columbus Blue Jackets are going all in this season. However, the team is still open to trading star forward Artemi Panarin. But in order for the team to trade Panarin, they must receive a fair offer in return.

As far as Duclair goes, he will be going to his fifth team since entering the league back in the 14-15 season. It is make or break time for this youngster. While he was having a decent year, thanks to a change of scenery, he will definitely see more playing time in Ottawa.

Matt Duchene made an immediate impact when he entered the lineup for the Blue Jackets. Columbus is hoping for the same with Dzingel as the Blue Jackets are in a tight race in the Metro Division.

Of note Columbus and Ottawa seemed to be likely trading partners. As Chris Johnston of Sportsnet pointed out on Saturday Headlines, Columbus was inquiring about a package deal for Duchene, Dzingel, and Mark Stone. The asking price on Stone was just way too steep. However, that does not mean Stone doesn’t end up there.
