RYAN EASES LOSS OF ‘ALFIE’
THE ARRIVAL of Bobby Ryan means Ottawa is stronger heading into 2013-14, despite losing Daniel Alfredsson. Ryan joins a young and improving forward group led by Jason Spezza. Kyle Turris, Mika Zibanejad and Cory Conacher provide the upside, while Milan Michalek is good when healthy. The dynamic Erik Karlsson leads a strong ‘D’ and Craig Anderson is among the NHL’s top goalies.
