Chasing the Second Wild Card Seed: Sens Still Trying to Add

As his team readies itself to play the Dallas Stars in the final game of this current four-game road trip, Senators general manager Bryan Murray took some time away from the organization’s scouting meeting in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to speak with the Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch Murray’s comments were essentially catalogued in two separate articles […]

Friday Happenings: Sens Looking to Add, Bingo Signs Bertuzzi to PTO

As the Senators’ brain trust meets with scouts in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to review this year’s draft class and determine the course of direction for the rest of the season, one NHL “insider” is reporting that the Senators are looking to add some offence. From ESPN‘s Pierre Lebrun: The Ottawa Senators haven’t given up on the […]

Cameron Versus MacLean: Differences in the Numbers

If you’ve paying attention to the Senators following the organization’s decision to fire head coach Paul MacLean, you have assuredly noticed there being some positive comments being shed on Dave Cameron’s work to date. Whenever a coach is canned, it is not really uncommon to hear players speak positively about having a fresh voice behind the bench […]

RFQ Proposals for LeBreton Flats Redevelopment Are In

With the conclusion of today’s noon deadline for the submission of request for qualifications (RFQs) for the plan to redevelop LeBreton Flats, the NCC revealed this afternoon that five proposals were submitted.

Western Conference Teams Sniffing Around on Chris Neil?

I was listening to tonight’s pre-game show before tonight’s Flyers/Senators tilt and it probably had to be one of the most informative listens of the season. Not only did I learn that Curtis Lazar is colour blind, Dean Brown also mentioned that he had spoken to scouts representing two different Western Conference teams that were […]

Bertuzzi Reaches Out to Ottawa: Looking for PTO

According to a website called Dans Les Coulisses, a site that I’ve never heard of until this afternoon, Todd Bertuzzi allegedly reached an agreement with the Ottawa Senators on a contract. So is it true? The report of a deal being struck has not been corroborated, but Bob McKenzie and Bruce Garrioch both confirmed however that Bertuzzi’s […]

Methot Recalled, Wideman Demoted

  After playing in last night’s  5-4 overtime loss to the Syracuse Crunch, the Senators have recalled Marc Methot from what amounts to a one-game conditioning stint in Binghamton. Methot finished last night’s game with zero points, one shot and a plus/minus of -2. The brevity of Methot’s stay in Binghamton raised some eyebrows, especially after Dave […]

Power Play Woes Plague Ottawa

Having gone 0 for its last 18 opportunities, the Ottawa Senators’ power play is sputtering along. As an organization that simply lacks elite scoring talent up front and relies heavily on the performance of its power play to help offset this shortcoming, the fact that Ottawa’s power play is operating with the league’s 19th highest […]

Lazar’s Night in GIFs

How do you celebrate after converting beautifully on an excellent stretch pass by Joe Hicketts? By blowing kisses of course. Congratulations to whomever had Joe Hicketts in the pool for the most likely defenceman that Curtis Lazar would ever blow a kiss to.

Senators Facing Long Playoff Odds

I was perusing this morning’s newspaper headlines online when I came across Bruce Garrioch’s article in the Ottawa Sun entitled ‘Ryan believes Sens can make playoff charge’. Ignoring the fact that no player, especially a media savvy person like Bobby Ryan, would ever publicly concede defeat in the face of long odds, can the Senators actually climb […]

Pierre Dorion Speaks: World Juniors, Lazar, Prospects, Hoffman Contract

With a playoff spot looking unlikely, you can’t blame Senators fans for hanging onto some hope for the future and indulging in some prospect porn by watching Curtis Lazar, Nick Paul, Andreas Englund and other draft eligible players participate in this year’s world juniors. So with that in mind, what better time for Senators assistant general […]

Trade Chatter: Interest in Chris Stewart Linked to Waning Playoff Odds

Filling in for Bob McKenzie as part of the Ottawa Senators’ customary pre-game radio hit, TSN‘s Darren Dreger donned the ‘hockey insider’ role and talked about some NHL trade rumours prior to the start of tonight’s Senators game versus the Sabres. So naturally, because of the fact that Chris Stewart plays for the Sabres, host Ian […]

Pulling the Trigger: How Long Before the Offers Pour In for Craig Anderson?

Unlike their previous incarnations that managed to take advantage of the performance of their goaltenders, this season’s Senators team has struggled to string together enough wins to put them in the playoff mix. Through 35 games, the Sens are already seven points back of the Eastern Conference’s second wild card seed and eight back of the first. […]

Report: Paul MacLean Won’t Coach the Devils

After all of last night’s reports indicated that former Senators head coach Paul MacLean was set to take over behind the bench for the recently fired Peter DeBoer in New Jersey, it sounds like all that speculation was all for naught. Just spoke with Paul MacLean. He will NOT be the new Devils Coach. All signs […]
