Hamilton's exactly the type of guy you want on a 4th line and he played 74 games for Bingo last year vs. the 13 games Caporusso played. There is no top 6 spot there for him. He has no future with the organization.

He beat out Caporusso last year why wouldn't he this year? Kramer on the other hand.. I honestly see Chris Neil in him. He'll put up a fight for a Bingo spot.

Louie Caparusso spent most of the year in Elmira. The few games he played in Bingo he looked out of place, lost, and slow. He is no where near as developed as Wacey, even for the fourth line. That said, it doesn't mean he won't become a more improved player this year and have that "light bulb" moment. I just wouldn't expect anything until mid-season. Cap is a healthy scratch with this forward core going into the season, like it or not.

Thanks! I know the names in contention but don't always follow the plans/contract statuses.

Wow its really unbelievable how huge the forward logjam is in the NHL and AHL. Murray really has done a great job acquiring young players that can compete for spots. Training camp is going to be intense.

In a few years you realistically could be rotating guys coming off of their ELC into the bottom 6 roles, leaving you tons of cap space to lock up some solid top 6 forwards long term.

This is an extremely good problem to have. As a B-Sens season ticket holder I'm really looking forward to the next three years. Tons of exciting younger guys making it over to the pros. I think this is the first time in a few years where we have a full compliment of draft picks/prospects without really needing to dive into the ECHL pond. We are actually sending prospects to the ECHL because we don't have room.

Sens seem very keen on Kramer. He's got an open door to Bingo unless he shuts it on himself.

Now I feel really silly - Thank You for setting that straight for me. And we did need another AHL defenceman so I guess he fills the need.

Forwards:

Stone - ZBad - Petersson
Hoff - DaCosta - Prince

Cowick - Hamilton - Jessiman

Leaves:

Kramer, Culek, JG, Caporusso, Schnieder

Two for press box, rest Elmira

Defense (Assuming Boro makes Ottawa):

Wiercioch-Gryba
Blood-Benoit
Wideman-Eckford

Leaves: Claesson, Sdao, Fransoo?

One for press box, rest Elmira

Goalie:

Lehner
[Expect a backup goalie signing soon]
Going to be a strong team I think.

Claesson has said he'll stay here to learn the NA style rather than go back to Sweden, so I assume he gets a nod.

Schneider must have been offered AHL to sign here. Kramer gets a lot of interest and JG is just fun to watch.

If Zibanejad is sent down as a wing, Pageau should step in. Maybe Cowick goes (back) down to ECHL, but he looked improved at Development Camp.

A good depth signing for us down in Binghamton. Guy isn't flashy with the offense but a decent shut down guy. Way better than Conboy last season.
I totally missed this signing, good deal..this solidifies our d line..

IF he plays any games with the Sens this season as an injury replacement or something and he somehow managed to score a goal at home, that call would be epic.

How do you make that sound when doing a goal call? It would sound like a cat hissing.
