I will give you that we have been able to land our own kind of exceptional players these years. Guys the entire league Is jealous of. Currently Tkachuk and Chabot.

We didn't draft him but Brannstrom might be another jealousy-inducing player in a year or two.

I think a lot of teams are envious of the prospects in the Sens system:

Defence: Wolanin, Brannstrom, JBD, Tychonik, Lajoie
Forward: Brown, Balcers, Batherson, Formenton, Norris, Chlapik, Abramov, Crookshank, Paul (late bloomer?)
Goalie: Gustavsson, Hogberg, D'Accord

Not to mention Chabot, White, Tkachuk already in the NHL as full-timers, plus all the picks coming our way over the next three years. We need a game changer (Lafreniere or Byfield) plus the 2020 San Jose pick (Rossi) and the Sens will be back in contention in no time.

2-3 years could look something like:

Tkachuk-Lafreniere-White
Formenton-Brown-Batherson
Balcers-Pageau-Norris
Abramov-Tierney-Ryan

Chabot-JBD
Brannstom-Ceci
Wolanin-Jaros

Hogberg
Gustavsson

It cracks me up that in 2 to 3 years, we still have lineups with Bobby on the wing. Poor guy.

Lafreniere is a winger, not that it changes much for your lineup (swap White and him)

You’re right. Likely be full time IR by then.

Norris has the tools to be a good 2nd line center.

Keeping my expectations low until I see what he does in the A. We said the same things about Chlapik

Chlapik has not really had much of a chance, yet. He's had injuries and then the team went bust. I still expect him to be a very good third line player.

Norris had a higher ceiling. Always did.

Sens have too many good prospects. If course not all of them will pan out, still it becomes extremely important to identify which ones will email early as possible, so we can trade the others while they are still valued.

I’m not saying Chlapik is done but I think expectations have been lowered. Word originally was he was going to be top 6. I mean it’s Kwan’s like that with young prospects that are picked early. I’m just not convinced yet of where Norris might wind up.

Where's he going to go? Eugene isn't going to buy him out any time soon. Plus Gaborik, Phaneuf, MacArthur will be off the books soon they'll need to keep his contract to hit cap floor.

Has anyone heard anything about the coaching and president vacancies?

I assume they'll want to hire a president before they hire a new coach but everything is so Donkey-backwards here that they'll probably do the opposite. Common sense never appears to prevail in Sensland
