The signing of David Legwand should take away some pressure from Kyle Turris and Mika Zibanejad.

Legwand believes he can serve as the team's second-line center and GM Bryan Murray likes his versatility. "David is a good veteran center, a guy who skates pretty well and gets up and down the ice," Murray said in an audio statement. "He's an experienced guy who can fit in either at the top or bottom of the lineup. He has been a captain and a leader, so we know we're getting a good person." Legwand generated 14 goals and 51 points in 83 games between Nashville and Detroit last campaign.

There is a chance that newly-signed center David Legwand could play alongside winger Bobby Ryan this upcoming season.

Clarke MacArthur, the Sens' other natural left winger has developed chemistry with top pivot Kyle Turris, so it seems logical that the club's other top port-sider would line up with Legwand, who is slated to be Ottawa's second-line center. Although neither is a star, the Legwand-Ryan duo could be surprisingly effective.
