When the Sens acquired Josh Brown, there was a lot of discussion about what his role on the team could be. Some think he could be a depth guy who comes in incase of injury, and some others think he’s an AHL option. However, I think the Sens can atleast look at a Chabot-Brown pairing. I don’t know if it will work, it would be a huge gamble, but so was playing Chabot with Dylan DeMelo, and that seemed to have worked out. I don’t think this would be a permament pairing. I think that if this does happen, it’s simply as a stopgap option until someone else is ready to play with Chabot.
