Who is our Core?
 
Under reasonable circumstances who would you say are our core players and should not be traded but build a team around them? All other players could be traded to improve the team.

Core Players:

Alfredson RW
Hossa RW
Havlat LW
Fisher C
Spezza C
Vermette C / LW

Chara D
Redden D
Phillips D
Volchenkov D

Hasek G
Emery G

Could be traded:

Smolinski C
White C
Schaefer LW
Varada LW
Langfeld RW
Neil RW

Pothier D
de Vries D
Simpson D
Leschyshyn D

Prusek G
Guard G

IMO our core is:

Marian Hossa
Daniel Alfredsson
Jason Spezza
Martin Havlat
Mike Fisher
Zdeno Chara
Wade Redden
Chris Phillips
Anton Volchenkov
Dominik Hasek
Ray Emery (future core - IMO untradeable)

I do think however that it is possible that one of the above players will be moved to further shake up the "core" of the Sens...someone like Havlat to address our need of a power winger who can score.

Hossa
Alfredsson
Havlat
Spezza
That's our offensive core

Fisher
Vermette
Schaefer
Varada
Neil
That's our role player core, guys worth more to us than to others.

Chara
Redden
Phillips
Volchenkov
Our defensive core

The supporting cast/hole-fillers:
Smolinski
White
Langfeld
DeVries
Pothier
Hasek
Prusek

If Hasek weren't so old I'd consider him part of the core but right now he just fills a hole.

Listing 15 players is too easy. You Core is your Core - the building blocks of your franchise. Generally considered to be 7 players. Now that will make you think and weigh the possibilities.

Chara, Phillips, Redden, Hossa, Havlat, Spezza, Fisher

Future Core: Volchenkov, Vermette, Emery, Meszerov - you do not trade these guys unless the return is HUGE.

These (IMO) are the ones you do not trade. Anyone else is open game if they bring a return to improve the team.

And I believe the list changes every year, perhaps even within a year.

Sorry, but Alfredsson needs to be in. The guy I guess I would take out is Phillips.

Core players in order of importance- Marian Hossa, Wade Redden, Zdeno Chara, Mike Fisher, and Ray Emery.

I'm not really a huge Sens fan, but I'm still a fan. I'm guessing the core is :

Hossa, Havlat, Chara, Redden, Alfredsson, Emery(Once he becomes the starter), Hasek(He is the starter), Phillips, Fisher.

Nice list and I think it settles all questions asked.

Alfie
Hossa
Havlat

HM. Phillips (inconsistent, unless in the playoffs where he rox our sox)

Alfie
Hossa
Havlat
Spezza
Chara
Redden
Hasek i guess

Arent the core the ones who are destined for a 5mil contract.

Phillips, Schaefer and Fisher and probably Vermette are sentimentally part of my core, but really are not irreplaceable when it comes down to the crunch. Core role players but not the serious 7.
