Sounds like Zibanejad was a little disappointed but recognizes that this is what is best for him long term.
By sending Zibanejad back to the SEL, Ottawa voides triggering the first year on his entry level contract.
At no point did Zibanejad look overmatched physically at this level. For an 18 year old kid, he did a great job competing physically but just seemed to lack confidence with the puck. With Zibanejad gone, the Sens will be counting on one of the other guys to step up and assume the role of second line centre.
How do you feel about the move?
