Sens fan Matt Cox turned to photoshop to provide the answer in the form of a graphic, taking a photo from the team’s 2017 Stanley Cup run and replacing red jerseys with former players’ current team colours.Retiree Chris Neil lounges barefoot in the front row with a frosty beverage, Erik Karlsson is front-and-centre in San Jose Sharks’ ‘Pacific teal’ and Kyle Turris sports Nashville’s sabre tooth tiger.Only Cody Ceci, Mark Borowiecki, Zack Smith, Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Craig Anderson and Bobby Ryan are still in red, according to Cox’s caption. He did not take his digital red pen to the ranks of management.

Asked what prompted him to do it, the graphic designer said “honestly, just seeing all the people leave over the last two years.“I was wondering how many players were left from that Cup run, so I Googled the 2017 team picture,” he explained via social media message Tuesday morning.“Then I thought it’d be funny to see where they all were now. Kinda took off from there.“Had a feeling seeing the players in their new sweaters would sort of hit home how bad the turnover has been.”No kidding.“That’s incredibly well done,” tweeted TSN’s James Duthie.As of Tuesday morning, Cox’s image had been shared 1,200 times and liked — why is there no dislike button, Twitter?! — 2,400 times.
