Ottawa's 2011 lineup pre-free-agent-frenzy

Now that the draft is over, what better excuse for all our armchair GMs to take another spin on the lazyboy and put forward some fresh takes on the Senator's lineup for next season. 

Filatov will be in the lineup and given a chance to be top 6, Zibanejad said he'll do his best to make the team this year and will lilkely be considered (assuming he signs by July 15th to get out of his SEL obligation).  I haven't heard if Poempel or Noeson are expected to compete for spots in the lineup this year.

What do you think the lineup will look like next year at this time?  What moves do you think BM should make on or after July 1st?

Here's my prediction:

 

Michalek - Spezza - Butler

Filatov - Regin - Alfredsson

Foligno - Smith - Shannon

Condra - Greening - Neil

 

Kuba - Karlsson

Phillips - Lee

Gonchar - Cowen

 

Andersson

TBD

 

And as far as moves on July 1st, I think BM should:

- look to upgrade #2 C either via UFA (J. Jokinen or Laich) or via trade (with Regin going out)

- sign a backup goalie (maybe Brian Boucher)
