The 6th Sens:
Via the Sens release:
"The Ottawa Senators today re-assigned defenceman Mark Borowiecki to the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators."
While I thought Boro had played solid in his short stint (and I loved that hit on Malkin), among the Bingo D call-ups he was averaging the least TOI per game (12:59). With Lundin returning it was only a matter of time before one of the three was sent down. When the B-Sens are inking Brett Lebda clearly help is needed.
When discussing the dilemma of which D to demote yesterday, Scanlan noted that the decision (like a few of late) was more complicated than pure merit:

The Senators will try to win their fourth straight on their home ice on Thursday night when they host...

As Buffalo worked the puck back to the point and fired, Silfverberg was struck on his left hand. Although he eventually got back up, picked up his stick and finished his shift,...
It's early in the season (and some teams are almost a quarter of the way through the season) and I have yet to pick a top defenceman so far this season. This is because there has yet to be a clear front runner. Today I make my first pick of Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators. He was last season's Norris Trophy winner and is picking up where he left off.
