The Ottawa Senators front office pulled few punches with respect to discussion about Filip Kuba's future as an unrestricted free agent. Although they lauded his play this season in a bounce-back year, the club balked at the thought of bringing him back on a similar price-tag -- one the front office believes he'll get in the open...
