    Why are we re-signing Hainsey... not really a fan.

    Some lines I'd like to see, in no particular order;

    Duclair-Brown-Batherson
    Tkachuk-Norris-Ryan
    Balcers-White-C.Brown
    Paul-Tierney-Hamryluk/Anisimov

    alternate options, again not in any order:
    Formenton-Norris-C.Brown
    Tkachuk-L.Brown-Batherson
    Duclair-Tierney-Ryan
    Paul-Chlapik-Hawryluk

    D-pair options
    Chabot-...Zaitsev
    Wolainin-Brannstrom
    Boro/Reilly-Jaros

    or

    Chabot-Jaros (not that he's really ready for that)
    Boro-Brannstrom
    Wolanin-Zaitsev

    Chabot-Brannstrom
    Wolanin-Zaitsev
    Boro/Reilly-Jaros

    JBD will probably get some games to end this season, and might show he belongs, but I'd guess he needs a year in the AHL.

    I suspect our top two picks this season get a long look but unless we get Lafreniere or Byfield I doubt they crack the team.

    Will look way different with potential UFA signings and trades

    Maybe but I like that like that. Sure I swap Hainsey for a better stay at home younger. Swap Tierney + pick for better center and try to sign a good goalie in ufa

    Will be interesting to see what we do this summer. A year ago this time nobody would have thought we'd sign Ennis and Hainsey or trade Ceci for Zaitsev and Brown.

    I wonder what DJ thinks of Peca. I admit I haven't really paid attention to him.

    This thread is kinda premature the lineup completely depends on who we end up drafting, haha.

    Not sure, but I think Balcers and Chlapik graduate, and possibly Logan and Brann,

    I dont think if the sens draft Byfield he will be here next season. Too many young players ahead of him pushing and I think he needs more development time.

    Also I think trying to predict right now with how many players are on expiring deals and the draft capital the team has its next to impossible.

    They also have to get to the floor and I am not sure they can do that with the current make up.

    I do truly believe that Formenton will make the team next year and is more of a lock than both Norris or Brown.

    Dream lineup. (assuming they win the lottery getting both Lafreniere and Byfield and players continue to develop)

    Lafreniere Tierney Duclair
    Tkachuk L. Brown/Norris Batherson
    Balcers White C. Brown
    Formenton Paul Ryan

    Chabot Demelo
    Wolanin Zaitsev
    Borowiecki Brannstrom
    Jaros

    Nilson

    If we get Byfield there's nothing wrong with having him playing junior again

    I agree on Formenton. I think he makes it full time next year.

    I am getting worried about Brown. It's always 1 step forward, 2 steps back with his injuries

    No, not completely.

    We still have untradeable players with contracts plus others that most would agree would be on the team. I suspect that Lafreniere is the only draft eligible player who will make the NHL next year and the probability of the Senators getting him is low.

    I don't think Byfield is ready ... but there is a pressure for GM's to get these kids signed and in the organization.... I think he plays in the NHL next year (if he wants too).

    I think we're going to see some moves in the summer that will surprise. If draft positions stay the same, I think our first rounder and the SJ first rounder have a great shot to make the team.

    Then I also think we're going to see the acquisition of 2-3 players from outside the organization to play in the NHL.

    I think we'll be really up in the air in terms of making lineups with any accuracy until after the 2nd week of free agency.

    Can someone explain to me how everyone seems to agree that this is an unusually strong draft class, especially in the top 10-15, and yet so many people think almost none of these prospects are going to be in the NHL next year. The past five drafts average 3.2 players making the NHL the following season.

    There's really no reason for Lafreniere, Byfield and Lundell not to be in the NHL next year.

    Don’t you think whoever drafts Byfield will almost have to play him in the AHL. Not much value in sending him back to Junior.

    Raymond has all of the talent and hockey sense to play in the NHL next year, but he's 165 lbs. This is why he's struggled in SHL this year, and players just get bigger and stronger in the NHL, and there's less time and space.

    I don't think this route is allowed.

    From what I have read, most scouts only seems to think Laff and Rossi have the most pro ready skill sets. Most think everyone else needs a bit more seasoning, including Byfield.

    Assuming we don't win the lottery and get a guy that can step in right away:

    Tkachuk - Tierney - Brown
    Duclair - Brown - Batherson
    ??????? - Anisimov - White
    Formenton - Norris - Balcers
    Paul, Chlapik

    Chabot - Zaitsev
    Boro - Brannstrom
    Wolanin - ???????
    Rielly

    Nilsson
    Hogberg

    Would be hoping to add a young top 6 winger and young top 4 defenseman through trade, but if I had to guess we make a move for a middle 6 forward (eg. Kapanen/Johnsson) and re-sign Hainsey or sign Zub/Marchenko to be a cheap RD.

    Going to be another rough season.

    I've heard this too. With that said if we have the minutes I don't mind players playing in the nhl if they've earned the spot. I'm hoping that Logan sends em packing back to junior. I am really hoping next year is his year. Hes too smart not to eventually..

    ... Lundell? Second in Liiga in corsi. Second on his team in FO%. He was already an effective player in World Juniors last year at 17. Decent size and he clearly already thinks the game at an NHL level.

    Sending Byfield back to junior seems silly to me. He's too big, too fast, too strong for that league. Aside from the immensely diminishing returns, there's more risk of hurting his development by sending him back than there would be to play him in the NHL. He'd quite likely develop bad habits and get used to being able to lean on his size and skill. He's strong enough and fast enough to play in the NHL, he just needs to learn how to process and execute at the highest level.
