Every year, someone on the Sens steps up and preforms immensely that usually helps out a position that was lacking or makes it one of the strongest strengths of the team.
Start of last year was Smith's remarkable play and Phillip's play to end off the season.
I say Gonchar and Regin. Simply because Gonchar is in excellent shape, coming off dominance in Russia and has something to prove to be on that Sochi tourney for team Russia next year. He was also our second best defender in the playoffs last year. I think he plays great hockey.
Regin is pretty obvious, I think he'll make the third line one of the strongest in the league and offer us that depth scoring when our top 2 lines struggling a bit. He looks healthy and ready to bring his A game. In case of injury he can step into top 6 role and help out without missing a beat.
Who do you think will be x-factor player for Sens this year.
