Who will we get goals from???


As I look over what's left of the Senators, it's pretty scary to see the extreme lack of depth of scoring. Yes, we have a goalie (finally, albeit unsigned as yet) and a good young developing defence (albeit largely offensive-minded)... but hey, we need to score more goals than the opposition to win games. It's going to take some kind of genius to remake this team.

Greening, Condra, Winchester, Foligno, Regin, Smith, Winchester, Neil... too many non scorers.. potential yes, however, unless we get some scorers, it's a loooooooooong road ahead.

Spezza needs to be surrounded by gunners to be effective. If we expect Spezza, (oft-injured) Michalek and Butler to carry this team, well... and at present let's be honest... we don't have a second line. Alfy may recover and as beloved as he is, he won't be able to carry the load of a second liner anymore.

The draft will give us an NHL ready top six forward and a whole bunch of potential that will take a number of years to realize... unless we finish last, in which case we'll take Larsson and end up with Shannon, Alfy and Foligno as our second line.

It's doubtful that we'll be dipping into any high priced UFAs during the rebuild stage, so it's build with what we have and can acquire via the draft or by using the draftees as assets to acquire prospects that are hopefully NHL ready.

The doors are sure open for guys to step up and show their stuff. These are exciting times. How long will it take to rebuild this team is anyone's guess.
