Bring up Chlapik and Batherson before Brown!
I would only bring any of them up if totally necessary. Let them settle in and dominate the ahl for a bit.
Keep Batherson and Brown in the AHL for the whole season. Chlapik can be called up and form a line with Stone and Balcers for a few games. These 2 kids can benefit from Stone's aura, as well
With saying that I wouldn't mind seeing Brown and Batherson playing with Stone, too
Melnyk owns the B-Sens, which means the organization as a whole is financially invested in a Belleville playoff berth. Because of this, it would be surprising to see these guys called up while they are red hot just so Boucher can play them 11 minutes a night.
We should probably consider sending Tkachuk down so that he can play some meaningful hockey down the stretch. I am not sure if we'd do that though, if Duchene and Stone are traded he's our biggest or second biggest name on the Senators NHL roster.
If we do make the playoffs down there then tkatchuk should go down and play. Anyone who’s eligible should go down.
Tkachuk is already an NHL player. He's still developing at only 19 years old. Leave him IN the NHL for the rest of the NHL season. If BEL makes the playoffs, send all of our eligible players to them for the playoffs. They could basically run a top 6 of:
All guys that could/should be in our top 9 next with *Stone, *Duchene and *Dzingel.
On the back end, we give them Jaros and Lajoie back, and maybe even send Harpur down through waivers. Could be a huge boost, as the Marlies, Americans and Crunch won't get much as their NHL affiliates could all be in the playoffs. I'd subscribe to AHL TV for the playoffs.
Another monster game
24Pts in his last 20
No way! My boy!
Beauty goal, geez.
Heart skipped a beat when Batherson almost fell on him during the celly.
That is Spezza VS Souray worthy.

Another look at Brown's OT winner; Pretty much coast to coast
Hot damn that was a nice goal
Definitely some spezza in there
Daaaaamn. So much Spezza in that. It takes so much skill to be able too roof it like that in close like he did.
Was really great to see it live.
"The Sens future looks bright."
What a killer goal. I was watching parts of the game and he looks good. So big and crazy reach with that stick
Beauty goal - just keep in mind these and a few other of the highlight goals recently have been scored on 3-3.
Batherson is or should be an NHL player too. That doesn't mean he won't benefit from being part of a strong AHL run rather than playing limited minutes for Boucher on a last place NHL team.
We are last place and about to trade away all our stars. I think playing playoff hockey, or at least important games down the stretch would be more important for Tkachuk than experiencing the downfall of our season after everybody is shipped off at the TDL. Although, I guess both are learning experiences.
Tkachuk's in his first season after being drafted. White was drafted almost 4 drafts ago. I do not think it'd be appropriate to send White down.
Tkachuk is a player who we drafted with being a leader in mind. I think being part of a playoff run with guys he will play with (hopefully) for the better part of the next decade in Gus', Brown, Batherson, etc would be a valuable enough experience to warrant sending him down.
It's also not like he is still killing it in the NHL. He has been up and down over the last few months.
His other one was a two on one that he hustled for.
While I agree, I feel like the sens promised Tkachuk a roster spot for the year to get him out of college. Also, would he not be paid considerably less if he got sent down? 70k vs 925k.... I know he's already made most of that 925k but still, I'm sure he wants all of it, and if they did sell him on leaving college, I'm sure the $$ was a big part.
Pay his full salary and then send him along with all of the others down on April 7th, where they can play the last 3 regular season games with Belleville and hopefully playoffs.
Edit: Oops, should probably be talking about Logan Brown; he's good.
They likely did promise him a spot, but the dynamic of the situation is different. He isn't exactly being demoted as much as being put in a situation that will be more valuable to him experience wise.
He would be taking a pay cut, which I can't really comment on how he'd feel about that since I don't know the guy. He's two years away from a big contract, so maybe 5 or low 6 figures of cash isn't as big of a deal. (As silly as that sounds)
15 pts in his last 8
21 pts in his last 14
Keep it up Logan!
The Batherson effect (not that Brown isnt playing well but there is a direct correlation)
They have helped each other
