Forwards: Smith, Butler, Winchester, Kelly, Neil, Shannon, Locke, Wick, Keller, Spencer, Hoffman, Foligno
Goaltenders: Gustavsson, Rynnas

Game Notes:
  • By not dressing Colton Orr, Ron Wilson deprived us of the opportunity to watch Orr vs Carkner XXVIII.
  • If you’re bored and can’t wait until tonight’s puck drop, check out Puck Daddy’s 2010-11 Season Preview of the Ottawa Senators that was written by last week’s The 6th Sens Podcast guest, Sean Leahy. (Ed. note: Didn’t agree with the biggest flop risk in Alfredsson. Personally, I would have stuck any of Regin, Michalek, Kovalev or Spezza ahead of the captain. Let me know who you would have put there in the comment thread below.
  • And if Puck Daddy’s preview isn’t enough to satiate your interest, check out this video of the Ottawa Sun‘s Earl McRae talking about hats. (Ed. note: hat tip to reader Mike O. for the find.) Why wouldn’t Jason want to talk to a self-professed gigalo about maturity?
