Well for one, Bryan Murray was quoted as saying he wanted to add more toughness when he signed Neil to an extension last summer. He also stated that because the remaining tough players in the free agent market were lacking in skill he would have to address the issue later in the season possibly through a trade. IMO we can address that issue with a few prospects making the team next season and the sens signing a few players in the off season.

In terms of prospect, Dziurzynski, Gryba, Browiecki and possibly Sdao are very close to making the team. Dziurzynski could slot right into the 4th line this season and has a very good chance of making the team next season. That should be pretty evident for anyone who has watched most/ all of Bingo's games this season. Gryba has had a solid season and Borowiecki and Sdao are highly touted by the organization and shouldn't be that far off from making the jump. Those three will be competing for the bottom defensive pairing of the 7th d man role so it in't out of the question that two of them will make it.

In regards to free agent additions, the main player I had in mind is Pierre Cedric Labrie. Labrie is somewhat of a heavyweight fighter who can put up some points and contribute defensively. He also is an agitator which is something that this organization lacks. IMO he would be an ideal player for the 13th forward role; he would play against the tougher teams in the league or if the sens wanted an added physical edge. Last season Murray had Konopka in that role so I could see the sens using Labrie in that role next season.
