formenton should be nowhere near the nhl for a year or two. Brannstrom should start in the a and do 40 games as well.DefenceWinsChampionships wrote:Flo The Action wrote:So are we trading Boedker?

My take on how I see the Sens lineup looking next season.
I’m also not sure we want Brannstrom starting next year. I’d want to try and see if we can’t get some team to unload a one year contract for a vet Dman that we can stick in that spot. Someone maybe overpaid that we could trade another team so we get back some assets. This IMO is the kind of moves the org should be thinking of making. Wolanin would be in the top 4 anyways and then injuries could make room for Brannstrom as the season wears on.
TBH you're probably right. I can see Brown, Formenton, Norris (top line in Belleville?) and Brannstrom starting in the A next year. Chlapik a possibility too.
Need Boedker, Boro, Paajarvi/Linderg to help reach cap minimum. I suspect they won't buyout Condon for the very same reason. And maybe they fit Smith in somewhere as well.
