ya iv noticed it aswell that corvo order turnovers in dozens which results in goals .. hes doin a bad job defensively but hes great in the oppositionz zone and sometimes it looks like hes the winger playin with spezza with his late rush to get that ring wide pass from spezza for a 1 timer i mean hes got speed n some offensive talent he should be a winger with spezza and healtey since they both r not so good defensively themselves so corvo could make up for that cuz obviously corvo would be the best winger with some defensive abilities ... this would rly help healtey n spezza to concentrate more on offense and worry less about defense ... this line benefits us both ways ... Heatley/Spezza/Corvo
and i do agree that hamel has takin up a spot and hes useless ...
I guess this would be "Part 2" of the question, but...who is going to be Redden's partner when he returns?
I would like to keep Phillips and Meszaros together, which leaves Corvo, Volchenkov, and Preissing as the options. Redden skated with Preissing today, but I think that had more to do with it being Redden's first practice with the team in a while and not sure who he'd be with. Corvo has been brutal in his own end, and seemed to have little to no chemistry with Redden when they were together.
I think it's time for Murray to give Volchenkov another shot with Redden. Last year, despite Volchenkov struggling to adjust to the right side, Redden put up some great offensive numbers when they were together, and that may have something to do Volchenkov being a guy who will sit back and let Redden play more offensive. This year, Volchenkov has adjusted to the right side more, and quite frankly, has earned the right to stay in the top 4.
The only reason I don't see that happening is because it leaves Corvo and Preissing together, which is unlikely to happen, but Murray should give it a shot.
Corvo is not proving to be a good d-man right now. You know its true when even Gord Wilson is trashing his performance and that guy thinks every Senator walks on water.
I like the idea of trying Corvo up there, but Corvo seems like the type who would not take it well and I don't see it working out. Schubert has shown great patience, professionalism and the investment by the team over the years is really paying off. He is the type of guy we need to keep on the roster.
Agreed 100%. McGrattan has pretty much become useless to this team. My second choice would be Denis Hamel.
I hate to say it, but yeah, he's not doing well for himself.
The little he does play, he's only had 1 or 2 games were he's used his size and really made an impact. He needs to be noticeable a lot more than that.
I like Gratts, but really, I don't know that we need an enforcer anymore. A lot of teams don't have them and they are doing fine with the new NHL
