In a media scrum following Thursday’s morning skate, Cory Clouston threw Alexei Kovalev under the bus. “When he plays, he’s very dominant. Other nights, he’s not. We need more consistency, not only from him but from the rest of the team … I’m more concerned with the teammates. They’re the ones working with him and […]
With the Senators season starting to swirl around the drain as early as 30 games into the 2010-11 NHL season, things are pretty bleak around the nation’s capital. Unless of course, you’re Sean McIndoe – a National Post columnist and the author of the Toronto Maple Leafs blog Down Goes Brown who can now add […]
Flicking blood. Really? Real story should be the loss. You’re better than that.
– In an interview with Team 1200’s Sports Call program, Assistant General Manager Tim Murray said, “For three weeks we’ve been trying to make a trade. Small trade. Big trade. Major trade. It’s just unrealistic right now.” He also spent the majority of the program referring to Bobby Butler as “not the answer”. I hope […]
Yesterday I joked on Twitter that Eugene Melnyk’s idea of a rebuild would be to sell the Ottawa Senators and buy the Atlanta Thrashers. Soon, he may have no choice. Despite his bravado and his best efforts to lull this fanbase into a false sense of security, the latest mathematical figures paint a much darker […]
[The Breakout Pass — now caring 10% more than the Senators!] I swear, this team isNot worth the syllables inThis haiku poem
Today was a wonderful day for dumb decisions.
It’s only early in December and I’m already glancing at the standings trying to figure out how big of a hole the Senators have dug themselves over the past few weeks. In the past, I’ve relied upon Sportsclubstats.com to break down the playoff standing metrics however, they haven’t updated their hockey section in awhile. Fortunately, […]

Like a cougar who had marinated in perfume before heading to the Crazy Horse bar in the Kanata Centrum, the recent decisions to scratch Erik Karlsson and Peter Regin reek of desperation. As a collective, Ottawa has scored goals at a slightly better than Muckaltian rate. Prior to scoring 3 goals against the Rangers, the […]

Welcome back Dany. How did this game not sell out? Blow it up Murray.
It’s been 541 days since TSN broke the story that Dany Heatley had requested a trade and the day has finally arrived, Dany Heatley will play in his first game at SBP since being dealt. For many fans, news of the request was a shock. For those who had a thumb on the pulse of […]
Q: Thoughts on placing Brian Lee on waivers? A: Well, it was more of an opportunity to expose Brian. Give him a chance to maybe get picked and have a chance to play. That’s part of it. The other part of course is financial. I won’t know until noon hour. At this point, he’s not […]
I still can remember where I was when the Brian Lee selection was announced. In what was an annual ritual I was down in Wasaga Beach with some friends celebrating the August long weekend with a steady state of inebriation. Between drinks and visits to the beach, a number of us found the time to […]

Eugene Melnyk’s alter ego is back! One month after his subdued appearance on The Fan 590, that bravado spewing, eternal optimist, super-fan is back! The Euge is back! In a hilarious Ottawa Sun article that includes a headline that refers to last year’s Canadiens squad as Stanley Cup finalists, The Euge, according to Don Brennan, […]
Today I was reading an article written by Keith Law over at ESPN.com that examined two of baseball’s early free agent signings – Victor Martinez and Aubrey Huff. If you’re unfamiliar with Keith, he’s the senior baseball analyst for Scouts Inc. and before joining ESPN as a columnist; he served as special assistant to the […]
