It’s been a tumultuous year for the Ottawa Senators. After a 2012-13 campaign that saw them somehow make the playoffs despite a ridiculous amount of injuries to just about everyone on their roster, they upset the Montreal Canadiens in the playoffs and even after their elimination to the Pittsburgh Penguins, seemed like a team set for big things in 2013-14 with a healthy roster...

Where does Pageau fit in with Ottawa Senators?

A look at the Senators' organizational depth chart after the team's summertime activity to date suggests that Jean-Gabriel Pageau is still a bubble player.
