REPORT: Senators Asking Price for Mark Stone is Ridiculous and They Still Might Get it

REPORT: Senators Asking Price for Mark Stone is Ridiculous and They Still Might Get it

Stone confirmed the deal in an interview with TSN.

Vegas general manager George McPhee is said to have outbid no fewer than seven teams for the former Ottawa Senators' star two-way winger.

Ottawa traded Mark Stone to Vegas for defenseman Erik Brannstrom, center Oscar Lindberg and a 2020 second-round pick, according to Sportsnet's Elliottte Friedman.

Stone, Duchene and Dzingel had accounted for 41 per cent of Ottawa's goals this season.

The reported deal comes after Ottawa had already traded fellow pending unrestricted free agent forwards Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel to the Columbus Blue Jackets in recent days as the club guts its core and continues on the path towards a potential rebuild. Stone will not be able to officially finalize an extension until March 1.

Draymond Green Close To Hiring Rich Paul As Agent
Green is a three-time NBA All-Star, a member of the All-NBA Second Team in 2016, and a member of the All-NBA Third Team in 2017. Green is scheduled to be a free agent in 2020 if he doesn't sign an extension with the Golden State Warriors this offseason.

The extension is for eight years and carries an average annual value of $9 million, according to a TSN report. According to the Ottawa Sun, the Senators made an eight-year offer on February 21. He posted a similar mark of 62 points through 58 games last season for Ottawa, though his current total of 28 tallies ranks as a career high. He's scored over 20 goals in each season since becoming an National Hockey League regular in 2014-15.

Taken 15th overall in the 2017 draft by Vegas, Brannstrom is the key piece in the deal for Ottawa.

Lindberg, 27, had four goals and 12 points in 35 contests this season for the Golden Knights.

Stone, 26, has 28 goals and 34 assists through 59 games this season.

The Senators have traded their final asset heading in the final hour of the trade deadline. The three were the team's top scorers before being traded.
