What are NHL fans saying about the Ottawa Senators signing Vladimir Tarasenko?

Dude said he wanted to play for a Stanley Cup contender, instead he went for the money.

Full no-move clause for Tarasenko. I guess the Senators will get nothing for him at the NHL trade deadline.

Playing on an offensive team on a one year deal. Smart move. He is hoping to score big on his next contract.
