It's finally happened -- the Sens traded for Peter Bondra today. So my favorite NHL player is now playing for one of my two favorite NHL teams. I'm not sure if it's going to be the final piece of the puzzle that means Ottawa will win it all, but of course I'm still thrilled about it. I'll finally get to cheer for Bondra whole-heartedly. And hopefully he'll get to cap off (no pun intended) his career with a Stanley Cup. That would just be perfect.
Of course, it's a little sad at the same time. Bondra was one of the few NHLers left who had played his entire 10-year-plus career with one team, and part of me would have liked to see him retire as a Cap. But if he had to be traded, I'm glad it was to Ottawa.
