Ottawa Senators Forwards Historical: The Power of Nine

With much discussion currently surrounding the arrival of Z-Day in Ottawa I wanted to see what history could teach us. I have decided to go back in Senators history and catalogue the first 9 games of every forward Ottawa has drafted since 1992. There are obviously some limitations to this list like development time (age […]

Post Game Haiku: Game 7

  Do closed door talks work? Jets stink as bad as their city. Anne Murray is hot.   MERGED: Scott     Regin back to IR Jets are more the Sens size Momentum building?

Puck Drop and Heritage Jersey Release Photo Diary

I attended the Puck Drop event today where the new Ottawa Senators heritage jerseys were available for sale as well as a used equipment sale and open practice. I brought my camera along for the ride so I could share the day with readers who couldn’t make it out to the event. It was really […]

Why History Is Not On Stephane’s Side

One of the hottest topics at Senators training camp this year is the vacancy at the second line center position. There are a number of strong, albeit young, candidates vying for the job. Peter Regin, Mika Zibanejad and Stephane Da Costa are all in the mix. It’s an interesting situation since Peter Regin is coming […]

Ottawa Senators FC Concept

In yesterday’s Game Day Thread I commented on the new Senator’s Heritage jersey’s resemblance to a soccer jersey. In case you missed it, here’s what I said: “My visual assessment? These jerseys look like a mash-up of this vintage Arsenal home jersey, Man City’s new away jersey, the new Doncaster Rovers kit and the 67’s […]

Filatov Under the Microscope

  When Dany Heatley arrived he was a blossoming star in the NHL with ample emotional baggage as a result of an off-ice incident resulting in the death of his friend and teammate. We greeted him with open arms and were willing to give him a fresh start despite the horrific incident which pales in […]

A Writer and Scout Discourse: The NP Round II

  The National Post continues to turn out poorly analyzed and in this case, contradictory articles faster than my stomach can churn at the thought of reading another one of their amateur and compost worthy articles. This time the article comes from Michael Traikos with analysis from Mark Seidel who is the director of scouting […]

Monday Musings on the Draft

  For those troubled by Zibanejad’s 9 points (5G,4A) through his first 26 games in the Swedish Elite League take the time to consider the Man Factor. In his 27 games in Sweden’s SuperElit (J20) League in 2010-11 he scored 21 points (12G, 9A) in 27 games. This is what happens when you’re a 18 […]

10 Zen Thoughts For Sens Army

  After being riled up by Noah Love earlier in the week I have decided to take an unconventional approach to tonight’s NHL Entry Draft. As a collective fan base we have been eying this date since Zach Smith put the stomps to Nathan Horton and ended the regular season in grand fashion. With all […]

Two weeks to fix an article: Noah Love

  Below is a story entitled ‘Two weeks to fix the franchise: The Ottawa Senators‘ from National Post writer Noah Love that appeared in its entirety here. His story is in italics and my comments in regular font. Let this be a lesson to always do your research and when in fact you don’t know, […]

Tim’s Take on the Senate Reform

You know, you gotta wonder if ‘Senate Reform’ is not the most brilliant idea for the Senators. 1. It shows that the Senators are aware of their internet presence and are trying to expand it. This is a big step and a very cool idea, if it’s true. I sincerely hope we start seeing some […]

Tow The Line

It’s tough finding Senators related news these days and I don’t think it will get any better until the draft. It’s rough out there folks. So put a little Da Costa back in your lives and forget about the greatest untold playoff story (Chris Campoli’s playoff moustache) and don’t lower yourselves to news that Mike […]

A Rogue Pick? Discussion is Good.

Not usually among the “Big Names Forwards” (Nugent-Hopkins, Landeskog, Strome, Huberdeau, Couturier) discussion in this coming draft when the Senators select number 6 is a guy who may be deserving of more attention, Swedish centre Mika Zibanejad. He’s currently making the rounds on some high profile scouting rankings being ranked 10th on Bob Mackenzie’s April […]

Rinkotology – Get Your Action

Bloguiin brothers in arms The Pens Blog are running a playoff fantasy hockey game that they’ve used a couple times before, for the 2010 playoffs and the 2010 Olympics, and although we weren’t invited, from what we hear it’s been pretty successful and a lot of fun. The added incentive is they’re giving away $3700 […]
