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 […]

Why the Frown Bytown? (Drafting Drama Queens)

As I was rudely interrupted while enjoying a raucous candidates debate last night with the news that Senators will make the 6th selection in the 2011 I was a little bummed out at first knowing that the worst case scenario had unfolded. I was in fact out of Sun Chips and my beloved Senators were […]

Oh, It Happened and Carvel Leaves the Building

The inevitable has happened and I take full advantage by getting in the last of my Carvel power play and Clouston suit digs before they’re as dated and ineffective as well… But let me start by saying in all seriousness I’ll miss the Little General and would have liked to have seen what he could […]

A Moment of Your Time…

A word and probably a bracket or two from Mr. Methodical, the high pitched nuisance named Tim… Today the Ottawa region need raise a glass of your favourite micro brew in honour of the birthday of Ottawa’s best blogger, although mediocre podcaster, Graeme. Where would the Alfiesphere be without your cruel wit, objective insight, rationale […]

Kovalev Finally Goes on a Tear

Too bad it happened to his knee and not the gamesheet. The Ottawa Sun is reporting that Alexei Kovalev is done for the year with a torn ACL in his left knee. This means a few things for the immediate future. Right away Senators fans can set aside all doubts that Kovalev will not show […]

More Orr!

How can we resist? And with no time wasted, here are some more possible explanations for Colton Orr’s three finger salute into the super hockey unknown. 1. The number of times he has cried while watching “Twilight”.2. His degrees of separation from Air Bud, golden receiver.3. The number of resumes he has already submitted to […]

Post Game Haiku

C minus effortDid not look like Sens of lateFox Sports Detroit stinks  

Snapshots from Detroit

A long hiatus, I realize, but I’m back with a few thoughts from last night’s game. 1. First of all, I had the privilege of watching the game broadcast by FSD and it was by far the worst television quality I have seen, It brought to mind watching any Sabres game at the Aud in […]

Friday Recap

Murray extended!Lee is up! Picard is gone!Campoli is injured?And Cheechoo is waived? We don’t need a Stanley Cup to have a parade in Ottawa today!

New York New York…

So Graeme and I are thrilled to announce that we’ve become contributors to the New York Times hockey blog ‘Slapshot’ doing a running feature called “Hockey Night in Blogdom”. If you don’t believe it or if you’re curious, our first contribution can be read here. Check it often and see what other NHL bloggers are […]

Jared Shoe-In?

What a great day to be a Senators fan. It’s hard not to be happy these days when you open your newspaper in the morning and read about another young blue chip defenseman getting a chance in pre-season. It’s hard not to get just a little excited when Jared Cowen appears on the roster. The […]

No Spiritual Surrender: Tim Talks Dany with a Mormon

I was reading a favourite baseball website of mine when I saw one of those flashy ads that offered real time advice and answers to all of life’s questions. I have questions like everyone else in Ottawa. I’ve read a lot about Dany this summer from a lot of different place and I realized I […]

In The Midnight Hour…We Get Fleeced?

For what it’s worth…. “Two league executives told Sun Media yesterday they’ve heard talk the Senators, Sharks and Kings have discussed a three-way deal that would send Heatley to San Jose, centre Jarrett Stoll and winger Alexander Frolov to Ottawa and centre Patrick Marleau to the Kings.” Forgive me, I believe I’m sleep walking […]

Fantasy Hockey Players Wanted

I believe we mentioned something about this a while ago and there was significant interest. So, I am here today to tell you that this season marks the beginning of our first annual 6thSens Fantasy Hockey Classic league. Unfortunately, it takes more than two people to compete in a league so we need some of […]


Well, apparently the Sharks have cleared some cap space. This could be the end of this era. This could be one of the last times we get to kick ol’ Dany around. I’ve been meaning to use this idea ever since the trade request broke but never had the opportunity due to Dany’s silence. Well, […]

Trash Talk and Violence: Memories of Don Brennan’s Summer Works.

Everyone by now knows who Don Brennan is. He was that guy on conference call with Dany Heatley who made a joke, similar to one your drunk uncle would make at a wedding. Everyone laughs, not because it’s funny, but because its pathetic and no one really knows what to say in response. You humour […]


Don Brennan: “Sorry Dany I haven’t had a chance to return your calls, it’s been a busy summer.” I don’t think that went as well as the Heatley camp thought it would. Don Brennan definitley stole the show.My other favourite part is when Dany Heatley said “I am a hockey player.” Amazing. For those of […]

It Got Me Thinking

I had this weird thought the other day and I couldn’t quite wrap my head around it. I found it to be a most perplexing question that despite my best efforts, I could not answer. I decided it was a question that required an immediate answer. So what does one do when they have an […]
