086: Pierre Dorion on Day One of Camp: "The Rebuild is Over." Is it Really Over Or Is There More to Do?
Today we discuss Pierre Dorion's fairly bold claim that the rebuild is over. If "the rebuild is over" and you start to think about every player and prospect in their prime - do the Senators now have what it takes to someday win a Stanley Cup? Who will (vs who should) replace Brady Tkachuk on the top line? Is Nick Paul the right choice? Chris Tierney starts as the number two centre and Shane Pinto has earned nothing yet. What's Erik Brannstrom status, will best guys really play, as they claim? Sounds like Sokolov will be in Belleville for his own good, and Angus Crookshank will be gone 4-6 months.
