Senators Elect to Keep Lazar Around

Last night Curtis Lazar made his ninth appearance in a game this season, meaning that if he plays in one more additional game thereafter, the first year of his three-year entry-level contract would be burned and bring him one season closer to unrestricted free agency. The Senators were faced with a choice to decide what […]

Senators Keep Showing Interest In Chris Stewart and It Needs to Stop

Dating back to last season, the Senators have reportedly demonstrated significant interest in acquiring Chris Stewart. TSN’s Bob McKenzie chronicled some of those rumours last February when he outlined a prospective three-way trade involving the Buffalo Sabres, St. Louis Blues and Ottawa Senators. Although this fabled three-way trade never came to fruition, the Sabres and […]

Cause for Concern? The Struggles of Mika Zibanejad

  In case you haven’t noticed lately, Mika Zibanejad’s game has been the subject of some deserved criticism lately. Whether you’re tuning into the radio, reading the latest on his struggles in the newspapers (here and here) or reading his zero goals, zero assists and zero points stat line on his player profile page, Mika’s […]

No Supplementary Discipline For Gryba

In last night’s important 5-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets, Eric Gryba was handed a match penalty and game misconduct with 11:56 left on the clock in the second period for his hard hit on Blue Jackets center Artem Anisimov. After his drop pass that left the puck in close proximity to his feet, Anisimov left […]

Jared Cowen’s Name Enters the Rumour Mill

Missed the opportunity to post something about this yesterday, but according to Bruce Garrioch, the Senators may finally be ready to address the state of their blue line. Essentially from the moment that the Senators promoted Cody Ceci last December, the team has elected to carry eight defencemen. The numbers situation (not the actual talent […]

I Love This Town

Following the tragic events on Wednesday morning, I took a bit of a reprieve from posting just so that I could process everything that has happened over the past few days. Living in the world that we do and watching violent events unfold elsewhere, it was easy to fall into the trap of thinking that […]

If the Senators Miss the Playoffs This Year, It’s Not Because of Bobby Ryan

In case you’re not familiar, Fire Joe Morgan was the blog that set the highest standard for hilarious sports criticism by taking some of the worst baseball columns written and proceeding to rip them apart paragraph by paragraph. Like countless others, I’ve ripped off their successful formula numerous times. It feels like it has been […]

Senators Submit An Arena Proposal For LeBreton Flats?

A few weeks ago, the National Capital Commission (NCC) invited and encouraged the private sector to submit proposals to redevelop a 9.3 hectare parcel of land (that could be expanded to 12.3 hectares) at LeBreton Flats. The idea of a downtown arena has been nothing but a pipedream for many Senators fans. Well, maybe we’re closer to […]

Marc Methot Draws the Line at $5M Per Year?

If you were one of the lucky ones who was able to head out to the Canadian Tire Centre last night to watch the Senators’ 5-3 come from behind win over the Avalanche, odds are you probably listened to TSN 1200′s pre-game show on the way to the rink. In case you missed it, Bob McKenzie appeared […]
