Scoring Chance Totals: Games 37-48

After 36 games I had this team them pegged as an "average to below average possession team with elite goaltending". Well things have certainly changed since then. From a team performance perspective at even-strength the final 12 games of the season were by far the Senators strongest, even if the puck stubbornly refused to enter […]

The Euge Speaks for the Third Time in One Week

After making a long awaited appearance on the Fan 590 last week, Eugene Melnyk gave an exclusive interview with the Ottawa Sun and rehashed on many of the same points that he made during his first interview. The only real difference being that he praised the job that Bryan Murray has done and mentioned that, […]

Myth Busting: Chris Phillips Amongst Biggest Draft Busts Since 1990?

  Having looked at an inordinate amount of advanced ‘sabermetric’ statistics, I think it’s unquestionable that they have their utility when analyzing the game of hockey. With that being said, their applicability in evaluating the worst draft busts since 1990 is heinous. In an ESPN Insider article penned by Alvin Chang, he used Tom Awad’s […]

Assorted Friday Scuttlebutt

Regin’s Season in Jeopardy? With a looming decision on whether or not to proceed with more rehab or corrective shoulder surgery (it would be his second procedure since March), should Peter Regin choose the latter, he could potentially miss the remainder of the 2011-12 season. One can definitely understand why Regin would be apprehensive about […]

Post-Rundblad Rosterbation

In the days that have followed the Turris/Rundblad trade, much of the subsequent discussion has focused on player potential and whether the Senators paid too steep a price to bring Turris into the fold. Thanks to the polarizing nature of the trade, I feel as though much of the conversation has been dominated by the […]

Annotated Box Score: Game 34

A In a little known fact, Marcus and Nick are actually related. Had the media or broadcasters not mentioned this 7,381,218 times yesterday, I never would have guessed. Thanks media! Speaking of the Foligno family, with yesterday’s brother versus brother battle, Nick bought a luxury suite so that 30 members of his extended family could […]

Meet the Ottawa Senators’ New Second Line

  Earlier this afternoon at Senators practice, Paul MacLean unveiled his latest line combinations. The following trios were used: Greening-Speza-Alfredsson; Foligno-Turris-Condra; Smith-Regin-Neil; and Daugavins-Konopka-Winchester. None of the beat reporters that cover the Senators made mention of where Bobby Butler was, so I’ll just assume that he was in one of thahhh cohhhnahhs* sobbing. (Note: * […]

Gran Turrismo: Turris, Turris, More Turris News

Although Bobby Butler signed a one-way deal this past summer, he is exempt from waivers because he has not played in […]

Senators Trade For Kyle Turris

Unlike Tim Thomas, I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time pumping the tires of a player who doesn’t play on the team that I support. Since first penning an article last March that featured a brief blurb about how Ottawa should consider acquiring a player like Kyle Turris, I’ve devoted more than a few posts […]

Press Conference at 6 pm: SBP Getting New Scoreboard?

According to Bruce Garrioch (@SunGarrioch): Senators to make major announcement at 6 p.m. My guess is Don Brennan gets his wish for a scoreboard. I’m told priced at $4-to-$5 million. Nails! Now that SBP’s antiquated scoreboard is on the way out of town, fans will have to look elsewhere for something to criticize. For anyone […]
