From ESPN Insider: 10 important players

3. Robin Lehner, G, Ottawa Senators -- We know that Craig Anderson is technically the No. 1 goalie in Ottawa. And that Ben Bishop has a one-way deal and that it really doesn't make any sense to keep three goalies in Ottawa. But Lehner is the goalie who can transform Ottawa's season more than any of them. He was 14-5-1 with a .945 save percentage in Binghamton during the lockout, reporting to the team as a slimmer version of the guy who took a step backward in the AHL last year. If he's given an opportunity to continue that strong play during the early portion of the season, that allows the Senators to ease Anderson into the job. And if both play well, you trade Anderson or Bishop for another piece that could immediately help the Senators this season. That's a much more appealing option than sending him back to the AHL and going a more conservative route.
