Getting more out of the Sens

As reported in the Sun, Alfredsson will be back with Fisher and Niel for tomorrow's game:
Rookie Brandon Bochenski, who surrendered his spot to Alfredsson in the third period, will be back with Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley for the regular-season opener at the Corel Centre against the Sabres.
Originally, Murray had looked to put Havlat and Alfredsson on the wings with Smolinski but Havlat requested a move back to right-wing forcing him and Alfredsson to play on separate lines.

If he's successful in getting Fisher's game to the level where he play with Alfredsson, the team will boast three very powerful lines.

If not, I could see Vermette getting some time with Alfredsson to see if he's able to handle a more prominent role in the lineup.


  1. I thought it said in today's Sun that Alfredsson would be with Smolinski and Vermette while Fisher would be with Havlat and Schaefer?

  2. Yeah - the article Don quotes is on crack (thanks Bruce Garrioch!). The Citizen today confirms the lines cmcmurty mentions.

  3. Bruce 'The Rumour' Garrioch strikes again!
