Wow, Greening will end up with more than 30 pts in his first full yr in the NHL & he still isn't doing enough for some people. He is the fastest guy on the team, he hits, he backchecks, he fights & he can set up some nice goals. What more can this guy do? I guess we will have to wait & see what Silfverberg/Zibanejad do next season to see if they can come close or beat what Greening has done this yr.

Not only should the Sens keep Klinkhammer IMO they should sign him for next season. He has proven since he was traded that he was a consistent contributor in Bingo all yr & he is showing in Ottawa that he has a nose for the net. Although he only has a point in 3 games he has the NHL size I like, he finishes his checks, plays decent defensively & hopefully will start putting them in. IMO he is already better than Daugavins & should replace him in the lineup for next season.

I can't believe Klinkhammer's been this good.

This kid has made an impact every time he's hit the ice. I'm also really surprised by his play. Right now he's a solid member on the team.

If he keeps it up he'll solidify himself a place on the roster. It all depends on if what we're seeing is the guy he will be game in and game out over the course of a season.

Fast forward 1 month and people are gonna be complaining about the wasted 7th rounder for a bottom 6er in a top 6 role.

I'd be willing to give up a 7th round pick for a bottom 6er, so long as he's not a 12/13th forward.

Besides, as much as I defended him earlier in the season, anything that helps keep Konopka in the press-box is ok with me.

Lets not forget he is locked up for the next two years for dirt.

It's not just you aragorn, but a lot of people. Expectations are just so incredibly low.

Greening has been extremely inconsistent, does not hit consistently, does not hit hard consistently. He is huge and extremely strong but only shows flashes of a power game, and hardly any mean streak. He is very fast also but rarely utilizes his speed to his advantage. He has played a huge portion of the season with Spezza, 30 points just isn't enough for a guy with his package.

/rant



Klink is awesome. Love when he chips it off the boards and wins the foot race. Hope he keeps it up and doesn't fizzle out.

He is the best option for 2nd line LW right now, but yeah hopefully next year he can continue his strong play in the bottom 6.

Sorry if this was answered before, but is it after the 4th game that we have to give Chicago the 7th rounder?

I also agree he will take Daugavins spot on the roster next season for sure. Silfverberg should take his place on the second line as well.

The chances of a 7th round pick playing ONE NHL game is pretty close to zero.

He's been a very pleasant surprise, but so was O'Brien before him, and so was Daugavins before him. They're still playing very well, but nobody can argue their level hasn't tapered off a bit. No player can maintain that high energy game over a very long stretch.

All I'm saying is don't expect him to maintain this level. It wasn't that long ago that Daugavins was being tried on the first line...

Klinkhammer didn't play into June last year either.

Ok, wasn't sure. Just knew it was someone without a ton of NHL experience in a pretty key place.

JOB is still playing just as good, just K-daug has really struggled.

Agreed, Daugavins first 10 games were incredible to watch. Time will tell with Klinkhammer but I'm not so sure he takes Kaspars job next year. He may have more offensive tools but he isn't the same calibre checker IMO, which is the position he'll inevitably find himself.

Wicked hockey name! Now if he would just grow a mullet, he would be the new Mr. Hockey.

He's been great.
