    Music to my ears. Let them get in at least 30-50 games in the Ahl.

    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
    LaJoie

    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 !

    Ennis
    Hainsey
    Demelo
    Boro
    Anderson
    Non Roster
    Swarz
    Goloubef

    RFAs
    Tierney
    C Brown
    Duclair
    Veronneau
    Chabot
    Jaros
    Non Roster
    Paul
    Sturtz
    Englund
    Ebert
    Daccord (10.2c) like White this year
    Chlapik
    Beaudin
    Sturtz
    Rodewald

    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.

    I'm actually annoyed with myself that I'm even interested. But I'm very interested to see how the kids do this year. I honestly think we'll see some progress and there are a lot of young players that are looking to make the jump. Especially on defence. So many intriguing options and development opportunities on the way.

    I like this lineup. I could stand to see Logan Brown in to start and Balcers out.

    The conclusion of one of the talking heads was the Senators are definitely not going to be on my top 5 teams to watch this season. Remarkable comment. :)

    I fully expect the lineup to be as posted with the only suspense being:
    1. L. Brown vs Balcers vs Paul (my crystal ball says Balcers)
    2. Wolanin ve Brannstrom (my crystal ball says Wolanin)

    I'm not sure I understand why people are putting Anisimov in a top 6, or even top 9, role, ahead of either Pageau or Tierney.

    Anisimov is a contract we had to take back. In an ideal world, he wouldn't even be on the team, and at 31, with his reputation and one year left on his deal, his value will not get any higher. Ideally, he'd go on LTIR at some point...

    Pageau, on the other hand, is an upcoming UFA who already holds value because of his versatility and defensive play. If you put him in an offensive situation and he has ~30-35 points at the deadline? You might be able to get a 1st round pick, or at least a 2nd + decent prospect.

    Tierney is 24, plays center and is an upcoming RFA. If he puts up a 50+ point season, he'll have good value at the draft.

    Tkachuk - White - Ryan
    Balcers - Tierney - Batherson
    C.Brown - Pageau - Duclair
    Paul/Boedker - Anisimov - Ennis

    Put Boedker in Balcers spot and send Balcers to the AHL. Don't want him rushed.

    He's NHL ready and better than Boedker. Play him. I think we can isolate each rookie pretty well with some vets (7/36 are basicaly vets on this team at this point) at least for the first couple months. 4 lines should all get similar ice time, with that 1st line hopefully playing the most.

    Tkachuk - White - Batherson
    Duclair- L. Brown - Ennis
    Balcers - Tierney - Ryan
    Anisimov - Pageau - C.Brown
    Boedker

    By the deadline, one of Pageau/Tierney will be gone, along with Boedker and Ennis at least. We'll probably get a roster player back in one of those deals, but the other 2 spots should be used to cycle in some kids to get them som NHL games. Norris, Formenton, Davidsson, Chlapik and Paul.

    He's 22 years old, can you really call that rushed?

    You know how he will really bust its by rushing him before he is ready thats how he becomes a true bust. But no he is not close to bust territory he just finished his first pro season... He is 21 years old. Big players always take longer to develop I just do not see the rush.

    I am expecting these to be the 13 forwards barring injury to start the season with the lineup looking something like this.

    Tkachuk-White-Batherson
    Ryan-Tierney-Duclair
    Anisimov-Pageau-Brown (shut down may lead the team in icetime)
    Paul-Ennis-Balcers
    Boedker

    Chabot-Demelo
    Wolanin - Zaitsev
    Hainsey - Jaros
    Boro
