Dude he's the only defender we have that can play the right side. Every stat imaginable shows that. Jaros isn't a top 4 defender yet and Ceci isn't gonna be more then a 3rd pairing sub if the Sens don't re-sign him.

On a team that has a goal differential of -51 DeMelo is a +10. Plus minus isn't a be all end all stat but within that context that should tell you something.
If you need a sign to stay alive tonight, this is it!

Ya not sure why the hate for DeMelo. He’s not flashy, not a top pairing guy like he is forced
To be sometimes, but hasn’t been bad for us by any means.

DeMelo has been fine. He has been very dependable in almost all games. If the rest of the blue liners played like him this team would have 5 or 6 more wins.

who has Hate for DeMelo? No one has mentioned their hate.

If he's that good why didn't the coach use him in 5min overtime?
DeMelo plays against 3rd and 4th lines, always

Because our coaching is responsible for the worst team in the league?

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today that the club has signed college free agent forward Max Veronneau to a two-year entry-level contract. Veronneau is expected to join the Senators in time for practice on Wednesday at Canadian Tire Centre.

"We are very excited to have Max join the Ottawa Senators," said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion. "We aggressively pursued Max, whose talents made him one of the highly sought-after college free agents available this year. He plays the game with tremendous pace and has terrific offensive instincts. Max will be given the opportunity to compete to be part of the Senators team, both now and in the future."



An Ottawa native, Veronneau, 23, concluded his senior season with the NCAA's Princeton University Tigers in 2018-19, seeing his collegiate playing career come to an end during a 6-5 triple overtime loss at Brown on Saturday. An alternate captain, Veronneau ranked second among Tigers in scoring this past season with 37 points (13 goals, 24 assists) while registering only two penalty minutes in 31 games.



A 6-0, 180-pound centre, Veronneau scored 52 goals and recorded 144 points over 130 career games to rank fourth among all-time Princeton scorers. He also ranked second in Tigers program history with 92 assists and was second in NCAA scoring during the 2017-18 season with 55 points. Veronneau was also nominated for the Hobey Baker Award, which is given to the top NCAA men's ice hockey player in the nation, in each of the last two seasons.



Prior to attending Princeton, Veronneau played parts of three seasons with the CCHL's Gloucester Rangers where he recorded 119 points (56 goals, 63 assists) and 16 penalty minutes over 92 games.

Jesse Winchester had good stats his final year in college before we signed him to similar fanfare and he was nothing but a 4th liner...  Not many college free agents amount to anything,  worst case scenario he plays in Belleville

True, but Winchester was at least an NHLer for a few seasons. Veronneau has better stats and I'm hoping he can show enough to be a regular nhler. Your point is valid though, I'm just being extra hopeful. Hopefully he leans more towards a Wheeler or Anders Lee type player then Winchester

As hyped as I am, gotta remember to keep my expectations realistic. Still it's kinda fun to get excited about a touted prospect playing! Hope they both have a good game!
