Josh Hennessy playing tonight

Ottawa Senators: The Senators are callling up forward Josh Hennessy from Binghamton of the AHL. He will likely replace winger Brian McGrattan in Tuesday night's game against Detroit. McGrattan suffered a hand injury in Columbus on Sunday. - TSN

I'm looking forward to see what he can do in the NHL.

Will Hennessy play wing? They are already enough centers on the Sens.

I hope they take Kelly out of the first line and put him in 4th with Hamel and Payer. They should leave the Fisher line intact and insert Hennessy on the Vermette line.

McAmmond-Spezza-Heatley
Eaves-Fisher-Neil
Schaefer-Vermette-Hennessy
Hamel-Kelly-Payer

He was with SanJose, not Chicago. And yes I believe it is his first NHL game.

He was actually traded from San Jose... it was Barinka who was traded from Chicago. But to answer your question, yes this is his first NHL game.

Look forward to seeing what he can do, and like others have said, I'd like to see him get non-4th line ice time, on the wing. Hopefully he'll help us mix it up a bit and set us back on the right path (not that I feel he'll be a huge difference maker).

I was watching the Bingo/Marlies game off and on last weekend, and in the third period Hennessy really impressed me. He assisted on both the game-tying and game-winning goals, and was controlling the play in the Marlies' zone.

Jeff Glass also had a very strong game.

I like how the Sens are calling up different players as rewards for their play in the minors.

McAmmond-Spezza-Heatley
McAmmond was the Sens worst player by a long shot in Columbus. He did nothing. He reminded me of Shawn McEachern's last season with the Sens, except with less goal scoring. My order for players to play with Spezza-Heatley:

1. Eaves
2. Vermette
3. Injured Alfie
4. DeForest Kelley
5. Chris Kelly
6. Dean Brown
7. Dean McAmmond

Peace

McAmmond is a 4th line player, much like Kelly. But he is more proven on a scoring line (373 points, 154 goals) and actually looks like Pavel Bure compared to Kelly's lack of finishing.

Chris Kelly is an excellent 4th line centre. But he is drawing the ire of many Sens fans by wasting a spot on the Spezza line. He has no business being there.

I agree that McAmmond does have more finish than Kelly, but it's not much. Plus, Kelly has much more jam to him, which has always been what the Spezza-Heatley line has lacked. It's really too bad... if Kelly could score a goal every 3-4 games, he'd be worth keeping there.

Isn't it funny how, especially the last few games he played on the big line, Kelly seemed to always be the guy in front of the net, while Spezza and Heatley were setting him up? I would've expected the opposite, for Kelly to play more of a Schaefer role on that line.

In any case, I'd love to see someone other than Kelly/McAmmond up there. Do you think Schaefer's board work and decent speed would be a fit?

They need Schaefer intact with Vermette and Alfredsson, as they have shown chemistry together.

Anybody on the Spezza line but Kelly.

From the NHL boxscore it has him playing 3:59 and being a -1. Also they have Payer as having played also. Who all was out of the lineup?

McGrattan did not play with a hand injury he suffererd fighting on Sunday, so Hennesey took his place. Payer was in there for Alfie.

He does? Not this year, he doesn't. The guy is absolutely horrendous when he has the puck on his stick.

He rarely even uses his speed out there. I'm not a fan on Kelly on the 1st line either, but I don't think McAmmond is the solution. I suppose it's worth a one or two game experiment, but really, the less I see of that guy, the better.

Josh "sippin on" Hennessy is the most gangsta name in the league. Therefore he needs to succeed.

I think Henessy should be renamed to 2pac
