Also, the Sens are pretty much where they would've been last year had Turris not got injured.  Boucher also has better players at his disposal than Cameron did.  I don't mean to diminish what Boucher and his staff are doing - I love it - but I think maybe a little too much is being made of it when we have a pretty solid team to start with.

Debatable.  We'll never really know how good the sens could have been had Turris not gone down but there's no denying that our D-zone coverage was a tire fire, we were constantly allowing 35+ shots; Anderson was breaking sticks, Weircioch/Cowen were impacting the game, Boro sucked and was played as a forward for a couple games...it was odd and I don't think Turris alone could have saved what were glaring weaknesses

Don't forget that we were missing Anderson for long stretches (remember how well the Habs did with Condon?) and we're missing Ryan.

Last year we were a point out of second with a have in hand when Turris hurt. The Habs had already cooled off with Condon in goal.  Back at the end of December we were *slightly* ahead of last year's place. Now we have pulled ahead quite a bit.

Good point....Ryan at the first half of last season was actually fantastic and then tailed off....this year he never really got going either.  I think the team feels more confident in the way they're playing and that's a big difference.  

Ryan is an enigma. I think there's a decent chance the Sens will try to convince Vegas to take him if they can get around the no-trade/nmc clause.

There's nothing to get around. Ryan does not need to be protected and won't be protected.

I think when Ryan comes back he will slot in on the 4th line. I really do. And you don't protect 4th line players.

That said, he will obviously be given the chance to play his way up the lineup.
