Sens sign Christoph Schubert?

It certainly seems that way.

While the club has made no formal announcement, both his player profile as well as TSN's Ottawa Senators Payroll Commitments has his salary for the coming season listed as $525,000, so it looks like a deal of some sort has been reached. No details on the length of the deal, but it seems like the team is big on two-year deals right now so it's probably of that variety.

Assuming the deal is infact done, Ottawa's salary cap situation looks like this:

Even if Schubert doesn't crack the regular roster, expect him to be kept around (and thus, count against the cap) because he can play either forward or D and therefore is the perfect utility player. Plus, he would have to clear waivers if they sent him down to Bingo, and I have to think some team would scoop him up, as I believe Schubert is more than capable of being in a bunch of other team's top six.

UPDATE: It's been confirmed. One-year deal, as Schubert accepted his qualifying offer.

He'd better crack the roster. Schubert's play last year made him one of the most exciting Senators to watch.... especially when he was a 4th line forward. You knew one or two big hits would be delivered every time he stepped on the ice.

Schubert has become overrated because of when he played forward. He was pretty awful on defense, but was a nice addition to the 4th line. He's certainly not going to crack the blueline, but I'd like to see him play up front a little.

This will be your first and only warning: stop posting these messages or action will taken. I've already contacted blogger about the matter and they've advised me what can and will be done if this continues.

It was funny the first time but I will not tolerate it any further.
