Speaking to Ken Warren later, he was somewhat more diplomatic about the whole situation:
“That’s the (lousy) thing about the lockout and the things you have to go through,” Cowen said following an informal skate with fellow Senators players and Ottawa-area professionals Monday at the Bell Sensplex. “I guess I’m just thankful I can play somewhere and don’t have to go to a different continent to play. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just something you have to take in stride.”
Looking forward to the upcoming Binghamton season. Plenty of recurring characters signed on and hopefully some new fan favourites as well. Should make for good TV.
