I’m back for the third and final blog of the 30 most important current Ottawa Senators. You can read part one and two here and here, respectively. Today’s piece will feature the top-1o most valuable players, and if you really think about it, the list should be pretty easy to make. Peoples orders will be different but to me there’s a clear top-1o group. Here it is:

10. Clarke MacArthur

Early in the season fans were being impatient with MacArthur, as he wasn’t producing very much. However, he has a solid track record and he’s still a valuable piece in the top-six that has very good chemistry with Kyle Turris and Mark Stone.

He was fantastic down the stretch and we know that even in a “down” season he should be good for at least 45+ points. Not to mention he looks even better in the advanced stats community. He’s not a cornerstone part of the franchise, but he makes the top-six better.
