    Lazar has never been amazing. Let's be realistic here.

    I like him a lot.  Obviously I like what he brings to the table a lot more than you do.  He's an important forechecker on the team, he, Condra and Pageau are always hustling and he's slowly starting to find his feet at the NHL level without a lick of pro experience.

    I'm a big fan, and I think the organization has every reason to be excited about him and Pageau.

    You can like him but Lazar being amazing would be like a Gaudreau type production so no, he is not amazing.

    Precisely. Lazar is basically like Chris Neil without the fighting right now. Will he be the saviour everyone is wishing for down the road? Perhaps.

    Ha, there's a lot of things that go into a prospect. For example, Gaudreau was in Boston College at Lazar's age, not the NHL. Does that make a big difference? Who knows. Gaudreau is being played in top 6 minutes - or top line minutes - by Hartley, which makes a huge statistical difference as well, while Lazar has been all over the bottom six.

    I'm not arguing that Lazar has the offensive potential Gaudreau has, but I think it's fairly safe to say and see that Lazar will be an impact player going forward - perhaps not a 30 goal guy, but a very, very strong 20 goal guy who can be an important part of a Cup team, and an important part of the Senators - and that's really all I care about.

    How can anyone argue that Condra, Pageau and Lazar have been amazing anyway? Which is exactly what I wrote. That line has been amazing, they've forechecked hard, they'd played hard and they've put up points. Because of that they've been rewarded with 3rd line minutes, but for the last 10 games or so, they've outscored the Zibanejad line, so are they really the third line?

    That line has been amazing in spite of young Lazar. Kudos to them.

    Well said. I think the key here is patience. I don't think anyone needs to be afraid to admit that Lazar is nothing special right now. Or to admit that he probably got a free pass into the NHL while guys like Pageau, Prince and Puempel had to wait for injuries to get called up. Patience, friends. Patience.

    I was just thinking that Stone, Pageau, and (obviously) EK are my favourite Sens at this moment. They will the team to win.
    Stone is just lights out. I can't believe how late he fell in the draft. I think all those knocks on his skating early on probably helped his development.
    JGP brings so much energy that he somehow woke Condra up.
    EK is a beast.

    Good time to be a Sens fan.

    Ddrafting injured players is a 50/50.
    Sometimes you get Mark Stone, sometimes you get Jarrod Maidens.

    Sometimes you get Marian Hossa, sometimes you get Jared Cowen.

    I don't believe Hossa was injured in his draft year.

    Sorry, you're right. He was drafted by the Sens, then the Winterhawks, played 7 games for the Sens then got sent down to Portland where he killed it en-route to the Memorial Cup. Blew out his knee in game 4 of the Mem Cup Finals (which the Hawks eventually won).

    True. I will say that he made a real solid, key save around the 10 minute mark in the 3rd that would have been a back breaker that late.

    It's semantics though. I said the line was amazing and I stick to it. Look at the part SSF bolded.

    Doesn't change the fact that I see great things for Lazar and find his line amazing.

    Haha nothing at all. Amazes me a team can be held to 16 shots and someone says one of the D men wasn't good or even played poorly. Wiercioch has been fine other than the odd poor game like against NYR where he and Ceci struggled.

    We won't discuss what D man is only surviving at this point and even that's a stretch.
