6. Andrew Ference, BOSTON BRUINS
With all of the former Senators in Boston, maybe it is time that the tables get turned. Ference has a bit of an edge to him, and is a top 4 defenseman on a Stanley Cup finalist and has a ring from the Bruins victory 2 seasons ago. Ference is 34, so his term will not be as long, and it might be risky to bet on him continuing his effective play. Could the Senators blue line handle an aging Chris Philips and Ference?
