Summer Skate -- Ottawa Senators
It's hard to shake the image of the Senators as a team in disarray. Over the last two years, they've lost Dany Heatley and Anton Volchenkov, endured countless Jason Spezza trade rumors, and remain one of the few NHL teams without a convincing No. 1 goaltender. Yet they finished fifth in the Eastern Conference last year and put together a 10-game winning streak midway through the season.
To see which key Senator is trending up and who's expected to decline in 2010-11, and also get access to E.J. Hradek's blog, the NHL Draft Blog and all of Insider's NHL coverage, sign up today.
