Discussion in 'Ottawa Senators' started by Sen sational, May 5, 2019.
Music to my ears. Let them get in at least 30-50 games in the Ahl.
Thabks for sharing. PRetty spot on analysis of where the team’s at and what they are trying to accomplish.
Dont you think, that Jaros could be used also on PP?
Christian Jaros might be some things, but an offensive defenceman is not one of them.
I think the Brown will have to be very good but not “unreal”. He is D+4, was drafted about 5 min behind PoolParty, and if he shows he is ready to learn/develop in the NHL I think he sticks.
Injuries aside, I can’t think of a top prospect the Senators have been more cautious with. Every player taken ahead of Brown has close to a full season in the NHL already.
He's certainly not going to QB a PP, but it's not like we have a lot of great RHD options that are keeping him off the PP. We probably play a forward over him in the majority of cases, but the group that gets the last 40 seconds of a PP is typically a reasonable facsimile of a 5v5 unit, he could see time there as Chabot's probably resting for his next shift and we don't want to mess with his regular pairings.
I think Brownneeds to play 40 + games and establish himself this year. Otherwise he is moving in to bust territory.
Batherson will play the full year with the big club imo
I think that the team that starts the season will be much different than the team that ends the season, I expect that Ottawa could trade as many as 10 players over the course of the season & leading up to the trade deadline. I have bolded those players I think should get traded next season & in italic those players who are also possible trade candidates.
2019 - 2020 Ottawa Senators Opening Season Roster:
Duclair - Anisimov - Ryan
Tkachuk - White - Batherson
Ennis - Tierny - Brown
Paul - Pageau - Rodewald/Boedker
Chabot - Zaitsev
Wolanin - DeMello
Boroweicki - Hainsey/Jaros
Anderson - Nilsson/Hogberg
2019 - 2020 Belleville Senators Opening Season Roster:
Balcers - Brown - Veronneau
Abramov - Chlapik - Davidsson
Formenton - Norris - Szarz (UFA)
Kelly - Kastellic - Sturtz
Klimchuk - Beaudin - Carcone/Labate
Bransstrom - Goloubef (UFA)
Lajoie - Ebert
Englund - Dougherty
Murray - Gendron
Hogberg - Gustavsson
Daccord - Dubeau
Quite interested to see the roster fall out required to get to 2020-2021 Be some interesting moves to say the least. I'm thinking that would look like
Tkachuk – White – Batherson
Paul** – Brown – 2020 1st (somewhere on this line)
Duclair – Anisimov – Brown
Balcers – Pageau – Davidsson
13th depending on 2019-2020 Development:
Chlapik, Formenton, Norris, Veronneau, Abramov or Rodewald
Chabot – Jaros
Bransstrom – Zaitsev*
Wolanin – Bernard-Docker
Nilsson - Hogberg
2020 1st could be LaFreniere LW, Byfield C, Raymond RW at this point.
Gone: Anderson, Ryan, Ennis, Tierney, Boedker, DeMello*, Hainsey, Borowiecki
* Zaitsev could be traded if return better than DeMello
** Only IF Paul dominates this year with net presence.
All of Chlapik, Formenton, Norris, Veronneau, Abramov, Rodewald, Thompson, Gustavsson should be ready for 2021-2022. Interesting times
Could have its own thread !
Leading into 20/21 is going to be an interesting year for the Sens. Not much chance Dorion/Melnyk screw the pooch on this.
Daccord (10.2c) like White this year
Ottawa Senators - CapFriendly - NHL Salary Caps
Should start by signing White (and Chabot if they can) this year
The list of ufas puta a smile on my face. Outside of Pageau and demelo. But those two can be traded or kept around without much to complain about.
Line ups discussed in first half.
