    I think a lot of the kids will be going back to Belleville after the season anyways... Hopefully they aren't like 20 points out in January and have to go on a huge run to make the playoffs this year. If they're comfortably a playoff team, I'm fine with sending guys to Ottawa as long as they're back in Belleville on April 5. Unless they're invited to the worlds, they should go to Belleville for the run. Maybe get some chemistry as a group.

    This is what I want by the middle of the season. I kinda want Brown to start in AHL and let Batherson get settled in Ottawa. Whenever the opportunity comes, put Brown in between Drake and Brady. That's putting him in the best position to succeed. Their games compliment each other so well. Duclair-White-Ryan wouldn't even be that bad of a 2nd line either. I just kinda hope they don't do TOO well #DerniereForLafreniere

    I like Tkachuk with White and I would prefer more of a speed element on the Brown-Bath line.

    I'd also like to spread out the scoring a little bit.

    2021-2022 top 6:
    Formenton - Brown - Batherson
    Tkachuk - Byfield - White

    I think the Sens will try to use Ryan to shield/protect the kids. He is a big body that can hit an open net.

    Someone has to convert some of the passes from Batherson/Brown etc.

    White’s play at the WC’s wasn’t great. Hopefully he can can take another step forward without MD/MS.

    While I’d love to see Ryan as the shield I find his hand issues have really affected his shot. He’s still very talented and a big body but becoming more of a setup man imo. I’d love to see a resurgence, I never thought the hate for him was deserved, he’s been a good soldier and I’d like to see his final years here as his best. And, great in the playoffs, he’s one of those guys that finds another gear

    I agree 100% ... the reality remains he is a veteran and our leading scorer (15) and second point producer from last year (behind CT). I bet he gets paired up with a kid in training camp.

    Found this highlight video on Reddit. I strongly recommend checking out the whole thing. We have quite the player in Brown (I feel like we have our 1C here). I’m not sure what I’m more impressed with:

    1-his vision
    2-his hands
    3-his passing
    4-his shot
    Or 5- his chemistry with Paul and Batherson

    Future of:

    Paul-Brown-Batherson
    Tkachuk-Norris-White
    Formenton-Byfield-Abramov

    (I guess drafting byfield is wishful thinking) but I love the balance between speed skill and grit on all lines.

    Watching the video, I really wish the big team had the BSens unis. They're aces.

    It would be confusing if the ottawa senators wore a jersey with a B on the front though. We'd have to change the name to the Benators.

    I would prefer our 1st RD pick from 4 years ago to be so good at training camp that he sticks and proves he is our best offensive center... giving us a a top 1-2 line center and securing our middle ice when we add Byfield.

    He probably could have, he didn't look too bad when he was up, but the extra time will only help. He's still 21, and we knew he was a long-term project when we took him. He's developed just fine, considering he had some injury problems. The injuries are really what I'm worried about most, other than that I think he's the best centre in the entire organization for now.

    Obviously they have the camp for a reason so this could change quickly, but right now I see Batherson and Balcers as the clear front runners for 2 of the 3 forward spots. I think Brown will end up battling Davidsson for a spot, and White will be the swing guy (C if Davidsson makes it, RW if Brown makes it).

    Verroneau, Forms, Chlapik and Paul would be the guys I see maybe challenging those 4.

    Im ecstatic they’re over seasoning him. If I’m the GM I start him and Drake in the A and at the half way point bring them up together.

    Yeah I'd love if management acknoledged the chemistry and kept them together. They seem like it'd help them to play on the same line together in the NHL instead of being suyrrounded by meh vets.

    If Boucher were still coach, they'd be penciled in on the same line, we'd get excited, and then he'd change the lines after their first goal. He never kept chemistry together. I hope DJ is different.

    The B stands for Bankrupt.

    Or our first line of Brady-Brown-Batherson.

    We have to hope Brown's knee issue doesn't continue to linger. He has had his share of injuries the last 2 years. He has the potential to be our best offensive C right now and he would be in my top 5 on PP1 every time.

    What I want to see is that the good young kids get enough opportunities to stay happy and hungry and I'd like to see them signed. Our best chance is to have a young core that compliment each other and that can grow together.

    I have less than zero faith in Dorion making the right calls here.

    Every kid before Brown in his draft has played a full season in the NHL. If the sens want to baby Brown with another season in the minors to “braise” ... they can consider him gone when his ETA is up. Time for him to show what he has at the NHL level.

    Batherson barely scored the last bunch of games in the AHL and no one wants him to simmer more.

    Yes - my bad ... I am guilty of generalizing / hyperbole ..

    Juolevi sounds like the worst nightmare for Lassi T Canucks Under the Microscope: Olli Juolevi

    And I take a pass on the Nylanders. My point is more AHL development at this point should be very “concerning”... any pro could easily go 1/3 a season with 6G in the AHL - than what do you do ? Promote the 4th leading scorer on the team ...or burry a 1RD puck for a 5th year.

    Its funny because Batherson is clearly the higher regarded prospect around here, and understandably so. But Trent Mann was just on the radio the other day and said that he believed that Logan Brown was the straw that was stirring the drink in the 2nd half of the season.

    I think we have a much better player in Brown than most people give him credit for, and I bet that we see a huge jump forward for him next season.

    Brown has not even played one full season in the AHL, due to injury issues.

    He is not going to be handed a spot on the Senator's roster based on anything other than him winning and keeping a spot. It doesn't matter where he was drafted, and where the other players in his draft year are playing...... all that matters is his ability to play and stay in the NHL.

    He can't be "gone" when his current contract (ELC) is up, as he'll be a RFA and still under club control.

    Mann said the same thing last April / March and I've repeated what I heard him say several times on here. I think Brown is going to be a good one and I won't be surprised to see him in the NHL all year
