Karlsson will probably win the Hart at this rate.

You can add a veteran D on either side at this point. A righty to push Ceci down or a lefty to help him on the 2nd pairing. Either way.

I'd take either, but a lefty would give Ceci a partner to grow with, as opposed to sticking him with Wier and hoping one of them doesn't crap their pants on a shift by shift basis.

Yeah. Anyway, maybe you could say the same for Wiercioch having a partner to grow with.



All I can say is I hope this veteran D comes in and Ceci gets a lot better and proves me wrong. We all know that the next time I'm wrong will be the first time, though. People keep ignoring that he's been paired with Methot and it didn't work so I really don't know what to say anymore.

I don't think there's really any comparables between Wiercioch and Ceci. Ceci has the frame to not get knocked off the puck, he's MUCH faster, he's basically as good an outlet passer already, he's got as good a shot. I liked Wier last year, but this year he's regressed again, I don't see a long future for him, but Ceci, I see a bright future personally.

Perhaps, but Anderson has been amazing 90% of the time.  I agree, a lot of shots don't tell the story, but you've watched, he's made incredible saves nightly to keep the Sens in the game and give them a chance.  You couldn't ask for anything more with the D we have.

You could ask for more than a 916 save percentage in today's NHL

I'm not really one for advanced stats personally, I prefer the old eye test, but I'd say Anderson has had to make saves that are above and beyond the 'normal' tough saves to keep the Sens in games. I'm very impressed with Hammond, so I'm not really scoffing at the suggestion that he could do the job, but as well as Anderson? I don't think so.

And .916 is pretty relative. Would you take someone with a .921 that plays for a team with good defence, or a guy at .916 with one of the worst defences in the league? I'd probably take the .916 guy.
