Senators head coach Bryan Murray has shuffled the rosters in the two groups at training camp to get a new look at some line combinations.

"Some guys haven't had the opportunity to play in a game yet and now they should have a chance," Murray said after an on-ice session Thursday morning with the group that will play against the Buffalo Sabres tomorrow night at Scotiabank Place."
 
With captain Daniel Alfredsson and Peter Schaefer both out of action as a precautionary measure to treat groin injuries, Denis Hamel and Antoine Vermette will be slotted into the lineup tomorrow.

Murray said both Alfredsson and Schaefer have been experiencing some discomfort with their groins recently and he didn't want to take a chance by playing either veteran.

"We planned to, but there's no sense in taking a chance on further injuries. That's the last thing you want to do to important players."

Vermette will play the left side on a line with centre Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley.

"I'm going to approach the game the same way," Vermette says. "I'm going to play with confidence and have some fun out there. I have some experience (in the NHL) now and I feel I am playing with more comfort and confidence. It's not a big deal who you play with, you just have to do good things out there."

Defenceman Christoph Schubert will visit a doctor next Tuesday as he hopes to learn more about the virus that has kept him off the ice in training camp. Schubert has been working out in the Senators conditioning room with strength and conditioning coach Randy Lee but needs clearance to resume on-ice workouts.
