I’ve seen a lot of lists out there that rank the importance of all the players on Team X, and I thought I could do the same thing for the Ottawa Senators. The concept is pretty simple, as all I’m doing is ranking the top 30 players in the Senators organization. Obviously that means that some players aren’t on the NHL team just yet, but there are still some prospects that are important for Ottawa.
Today I am doing part one of three, going from #21-30. I’ll start from the bottom of the list and make my way up. I wanted to include players outside of the NHL as well, hence the top 30 instead of top 20.
So here is the bottom third of the master list:
30. Colin White
Most people have read quite a bit on White recently as he was just picked two weeks ago by the Senators. He ranks at the end of my list, as he’s in the second tier of Senators prospects. He has a long way to go in order to be considered an important part of the NHL team, but he has the pedigree. As a first round pick, people have high expectations for him and he’ll be given every chance to succeed.
He won’t make an impact right away, but perhaps in a couple of seasons we will be seeing him up in Canada.
