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?

Lebrun on Methot Situation

ESPN’s Pierre Lebrun created a bit of a stir this afternoon when he revealed in his latest blog the monetary figure of the Senators’ latest contract offer to Senators defenceman Marc Methot. And by stir, I mean that people in a Canadian hockey market talked hockey more than they normally would. I guess that’s what […]

Bringing Pesky Back

After dropping their season opener to the Nashville Predators, the Senators did what they had to do to salvage their first road trip of the season. Entering the team’s first road trip to start the season, the general consensus was that the Senators had to win two of three games before returning for the team’s […]

Shake It Off Ottawa

It’s just one game, right? Far too early to worry. Free Patrick Wiercioch. It’s just one game. *Closes eyes and takes a deep breath.* It’s just one game, although you wouldn’t know it based upon some of the post-game reactions that ensued following the Senators’ 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators. Even though it was […]


Bryan Murray Speaks: Pageau, Methot Contract Status, Lazar Hype

Following the official unveiling of the team’s 23-man roster to start the NHL season, Senators GM Bryan Murray held a scrum with the local media to discuss the team’s performance and the play of some particular individuals during the camp and subsequent exhibition games. Much of the interview is pretty standard fare. Murray plays up […]

A Thought on Power Play Units

From Senators practice today: Ryan is working on a pp unit with Michalek and Zibanejad, but before you think that could be No. 1 combo, Karlsson is on the other pp
