Stone has probably been better than Da Costa in terms of two-way play in Bingo, and the Sens might consider calling him up for a bottom six spot at some point if there are injuries, hence their selection of him for camp versus Da Costa, ZBad or one of the better defensive forwards in Bingo (Grant, Dz etc.). His skill level makes him intriguing in our bottom six in terms of augmenting our offence a bit.
Hopefully Anderson and Bishop play solid and make the decision easy for Lehner. Would suck to be forced into a trade too early in the season. Lehner will be the starter as early as next year, but him being the clear starter at camp creates an awkward situation for the Sens in terms of maxing out the return our goalie assets.
Wouldn't be shocked of Claessen is the 8th d-man, which will be mainly just for his experience. Could be Gryba though, given our lack of strength on the blueline. If Boro and/or Phillips get hurt, we may actually call him up... <shudder>.
