    In his last 3 seasons with Floria, he went from playing 1 game, to 39 the next, to 73 last season. His goals went from 0, to 2, to 5. With 8 this season he has more than he has in his past 3 seasons and is on pace for ~28 goals.

    Apparently playing with Campbell is all he needed. I have no idea how his defensive game stacks up (must be decent), but just watch his shot. Amazing.

    I'm not going to say that all of the credit is due to playing with certain teammates, but it happens quite a bit where an average player has a breakout year all of a sudden under the right conditions.

    In other words, the team that pays him 4-5 million per year on a 5 year term might be in trouble.

    I think the only position the Sens can justly fill is the 2nd line C role. Da Costa can go down to Bingo.

    Regin will come back at some point, but given his history, depth at C is necessary.

    I see no reason why anyone else in the line-up right now deserves to be demoted. Team is winning, and only really recently developing a team identity.

    Well yeah, but that is also a huge overpayment. More realistically I would see a twofold increase (~1.2-1.5M).

    You don't want another Pisani or Cheechoo situation.

    Yep, strange for the Ottawa Senators to be passing on a young 20+ goal guy, but team unity/identity is a huge thing. Also, I'd lay low and let Regin take care of it personally. If he gets hurt again, then I'd move Z.Smith up to play with Alfie and Foligno, promote Winchester to line 3 and try out either D.Grant (not ready) or Jim O'Brien (appeared ready to me) as 4th line C.

    Andre Deveaux Suspended 3 games for his hit to the head on Fleischmann. The TSN panel was predicting 6-8 games. So I guess Shanahan is unpredictable. It was a dirty hit, but I would say that Wolski should have gotten a suspension too (beating an old horse). But I guess being Deveaux is worthy of a suspension whereas being Wolski isn't.

    Re: Comeau:

    Ottawa probably would have had first claim on him over Calgary right? So I guess they had no interest.
