The Sens and the Stars are a lot alike in how they play the game, even if they have been built in two entirely different ways (Sens through the draft and Stars through the free agency and trade markets). Both teams start with solid goaltending and defence, and complement the team with fast two-way players up front. They focus on team defence first, and the fast explosive transition game to generate offence.

Our front office and bench staff all sing off that same songsheet IMO. Bob Gainey and Doug Jarvis from their Dallas days, and AS and Gauthier from their Sens days. CJ seems to have picked that same approach up through his career path. We have coherence off the ice, but the on-ice personnel is not perfectly matched to that end result yet, and I would expect to see that evolve over some key player moves in the years to come. Those one dimensional players wearing the CH may soon be a thing of the past.
