Aces Wild

With the breaking news of Kuba’s season ending surgery (hmmm, maybe the surgery part, but when did his season begin again?), the focus now becomes the Black Aces.

Unlike the Black Aces of Shore yore, I doubt you’ll see them making popcorn or escorting you to your seat, but if the Sens are to have any post season success they will be put hard to work in practice, providing the club with injury replacements when needed.

In order to be ready for injuries, sufficient players will have to be identified, and brought up to the big club for the start of the post season, as Bingo will not be making the post season themselves, leaving players to get out of game shape if not with the big club.

Here’s my guess on the Black Ace roster, in order of priority, by position;

Goaltending – Mike Brodeur

Defence – Brian Lee, Derek Smith, Craig Schira, Geoff Kinrade and Jared Cowen.

Froward – Zach Smith, Jonathan Cheechoo, Ryan Keller, Kaspars Daugavins, Cody Bass.

From the forward ranks, a pretty good mix, but the defense, after Lee, is suspect, at best.

Here’s hoping to staying healthy all the way to hoisting the Cup!
