"This is not fantasy hockey" John Muckler

But for us....

My 2006-07 Senators lineup:
Left Wing: Dany Heatley, Peter Schaefer, Jamie Langenbrunner, Antoine Vermette

Centremen: Jason Spezza, Jason Arnott, Mike Fisher, Chris Kelly

Right Wing: Daniel Alfredsson, Patrick Eaves, Chris Neil, Brian McGrattan

Defence: Zdeno Chara, Chris Phillips, Andrej Meszaros, Anton Volchenkov, Brian Pothier, Christoph Schubert

Goalie: Nikolai Khabibulin, Ray Emery

(That's a goodbye to Havlat and Smolinski to get the Bulin Wall) So long to Reds via free agency and the team picks up UFAs Arnott and Langenbrunner. Resign UFAs Chara, Pothier, Schaefer, McGratton, Neil, and Kelly. Do something with Arnason - anything. Payroll would have to raise to probably close to $44 million - see below. Unrealistic? Well, the Canadian dollar is pretty much 90 cents US now you know.

Zdeno Chara $6,500,000
