    +1, I think Nash has a good shot of putting it all together and scoring 50.

    I agree to be honest. I think that's exactly what's gonna happen and very close to precisely the amount of points I would predict him at. I'd lean more towards mid-60s, but I think he'll be more effective than most think.

    That said, I want to tone down my expectations for a lot of guys. It'll be a rough year offensively again presumably, so that's ripple through to Alfie as well - if he's even healthy.

    We could be wrong, but if you think of it, pairing up a rookie with a vet to bring him along is, perhaps, something you do when you have a stacked team and you do that on the third line. Perhaps what the Sens need more is not production this year (like, who cares, since they'll be golfing in April) but building chemistry for next season. So load up your top line with Spezza, Alfie and Michalek (that also takes some heat off the 2nd/3rd lines) and let the chips fall where they may. Yes, Im even advocating moving Butler away from Spezza.

    Michalek - Spezza - Alfredsson
    Filatov - Regin/Zibanejad/DaCosta - Butler
    Foligno/Greening - Smith - Condra
    Greening/Foligno - Konopka - Neil

    I hate putting either Foligno or Greening on the 4th line but someone's gotta go there. And, yes, Winchester isn't in there. Perhaps I should throw him into that dog's breakfast at 2C. I really, really want Zibanejad to make the team, even if that means slotting Winchester or Smith at 2C and starting Zibanejad at 3rd. Zibanejad also plays the wing, though, doesn't he?


    If you want to build chemistry for next season, shouldn't you have Filatov and/or Butler on the first line? If we're expecting them to play together, wouldn't the chemistry-building method demand that they play together this year?

    Who knows next year. Maybe move Michalek to the 2nd line and Butler/Filatov to the top? Or maybe Filatov is not re-signed and Butler stays on the 2nd or is lapped by the Swedes on the depth chart.

    Yeah, one of them should probably be there... maybe Filatov - Spezza - Alfredsson, or Michalek/Greening - Spezza - Butler?

    Not sure anymore, but I'd have a big guy + Filatov/Butler up there personally. However, I'm sure we'll see every single combo soon enough.

    Here's a prediction that may seem bold to some, but I believe will happen. Milan Michalek will lead the Sens in Goals this year.

    IOW no excuses, anymore. It's against the forum rules to use someone else's account, after all Wink

    He will. He was second on the team last year and probably will be, again (especially if he plays on the top line with Spezza and Alfie. And if he stays healthy while Spezza/Alfredsson have injuries, he could well end up leading the Sens in scoring.

    But I don't think that happens.

Imagine what his splits'll look like after a season playing in front of a team that's built to score goals. He's gonna be lights out. Barring another "Tim Thomas 2010-11" performance from someone like--oh, I don't know--Tim Thomas, he's gonna walk away with the hardware next off-season.

    Book it.

    Anyone else have a bold claim about the next award winners? Let's hear it. Cheering

    It's not exactly a bold prediction at this point, but Malkin sure looks like he's having a Hart Trophy season. If they stay in playoff position, my money's on him. He's really put that team on his back this year.

    Hard to argue with that right now.
