    Your second line-up is much better ^ even if we send Lazar down we can place Condra on 4th line and move Stone one up.

    I don't wanna rush Puempel. I think one more year in A will do him wonders.

    MacArthur - Turris - Ryan
    Michalek - Zibanejad - Chiasson
    Greening - Legwand - Stone
    Hoffman/Condra - Smith - Neil
    - I wouldn't be surprised if Condra got waived or traded

    Cowen - Karlsson
    Methot - Ceci
    Phllips/Boroweicki - Gryba
    - Wiercioch is the odd man out & will likely get traded.

    Anderson - Lehner

    Hope Condra gets waived. It's a real possibility.

    He may not, IMO he will share that 12th spot with Hoffman who is a rookie & we know that PM prefers vets over rookies. While Hoffman gives that 4th line an offensive option, Condra is an experienced defensive forward who could fit better on that 4th line. Should be interesting to see what happens with that roster spot.

    I don't think the Senators can get a second pairing defenceman in return for two 4th line wingers like Greening and Condra.

    Well, they play opposite sides, so I don't see it as being one or the other, more likely Hoffman or Greening, and Condra or Neil. For Greening to get bumped out of the lineup, we either need a center to make the line and Smith to play LW, or Puempel to make the team. I could also see them try Lazar on a wing but I think he'd be a RW, could be wrong though.

    the first line for this team is Greening-Smith-Neil so everyone please stop putting that stupid Turris line first.

    Mac - Turris - Ryan
    Milo - Zib - Chia
    Hoff - Smith - Stone
    Peumpel - Legwand - Lazar

    Condra extra

    Methot - Karlsson
    Cowen - Gryba

    Boro - extra

    Phillips + Greening + Neil traded for something.

    That forward lineup would be wonderful

    Switch Gryba and Ceci on D and the D is perfect too

    Mac-Turris-Ryan
    Chiasson-Zibanejad-Stone
    Michalek-Legwand-Hoffman

    Condra

    Methot-Karlsson
    Cowen-Gryba

    Phillips

    Anderson
    Lehner

    Waive or move Greening. If we can trade Neil or Philips we should much as I love them. If we're looking good near the dealine, I wouldn't be opposed to a Stone+ or Chia+ deal for Kane or something.

    If we don't get Ryan and Methot signed soon, start looking for trades for a quick little retool-picks, prospects, young'uns... etc.

    The way I see it, there's three forward trios you can't separate:

    Michalek-Zibanejad-Chiasson
    MacArthur-Turris-Ryan
    Hoffman-Smith-Stone

    Put the best players available in the last three spots (Legwand + X + X).

    Hoffman would be better with Legwand and Lazar, imo.

    Smith on the wing with Pageau and Stone.

    MacArthur-Turris-Ryan
    Michalek-Zibanejad-Chiasson
    Hoffman-Legwand-Lazar
    Smith-Pageau-Stone

    Beautiful. Replace Lazar with Stone and Stone with Condra if Lazar sent down.

    But do they have the guts to do that. MacLean always says the best guys play - and then doesn't do it. But I guess the roster is Murray's call at the end??

    Since Toronto is a rival, I have made an attempt to compare the teams player for player.

    Blue = the Maple Leaf player is better than its counterpart.
    Red = the Senator player is better than its counterpart.
    Black = players are equally good/too Close to decide.

    These are projected line-ups, not the ones that I'd like to see.


    Mac-Turris-Ryan
    Michalek-Zibanejad-Chiasson
    Greening-Legwand-Stone
    Condra-Smith-Neil

    Pageau, Lazar, Puempel

    Methot-Karlsson
    Cowen-Gryba
    Phillips-Ceci
    Weir, Claesson

    Anderson
    Lehner





    JVR - Bozak - Kessel
    Leivo - Kadri - Lupul
    Komarov - Holland - Clarkson
    Bodie - Santorelli - Winnik

    Booth, Frattin, Nylander

    Polak - Phaneuf
    Robidas - Gardiner
    Franson - Rielly
    Percy, Granberg

    Bernier
    Reimer


    ABout right, which ones would you change?


    According to these guestimations thes teams cance eachother out, both being +6 and the rest equally good.

    For starters:

    Kessel>Ryan
    Legwand>>>Holland No idea why you have this as too close to call...

    Also, Greening would be projected in over Condra, as Condra plays RW whereas Greening plays LW.

    Wouldn't be so sure about that. Especially if you add defensive awareness and skill.


    I guess we'll se :)

    Based on camp so far I tend to agree.

    Too many of these suggested lineups are moving guys out of their normal positions and even shifting them to off-wings.

    The only shift I can see at this point is time hinges on how Pageau and Lazar play through the remaining days of camp.

    If one of then shows enough then I think the third line will be Smith-Legwand-Stone,
    with the fourth line centered by Pageau or Lazar.
