Top Six Quality Lacking!!!



With the yearly stream of departures of top defencemen, the Sens have concentrated alot of their drafting resources on rebuilding the defensive depth of the team. With the decision to use the number one pick last year to acquire David Rundblad comes a current lack of depth at the top six forward position.

Spezza, Michalek, Alfy, Fisher and Kovalev and hopefuls... albeit hopefuls Regin and Foligno have potential... With one top six injury, which we can count on for sure, where will we turn for offence? We are loaded with third and fourth line bodies, but how far can we go with any of those bodies sitting with top six minutes. Hoping that Regin becomes a full time top six forward this year is a stretch... and maybe he will. Hoping that Nick Foligno with his nine goals last year becomes a full time top six forward is an even bigger stretch.

Is our new offence-from-the-defence, lead by a fragile Gonchar expected to carry the team's offence?

On the positive side, Binghamton looks to be set for a huge turn-around, and there is alot of potential for at least one of Hoffman, Butler or Wick to step up and play so well that they force their way into the Sens lineup. So, all of this leads to the question of will there be enough scoring to offset the questionable goaltending and all of the odd man rushes that will be coming our way with our new-found offensive-minded dmen... and we have alot of potential...

Whaddya think?
